Cleaning the Glass Pipe in Your Smell Resistant Stash Kit

He pressed his back against the wet stone of the alley wall, his eyes darting around, searching for dangers like a wild animal. His breathing slowed as he detected no one had followed him. He slowly slid down the wall to sit on the dirty sidewalk. The large green dumpster next to him provided his some privacy as he began to search through his newly stolen loot.

Before we get started, make no mistake, it is still illegal to fly with weed.  We can, however, give you a few suggestions if you feel brave enough to get in Johnny Law's face to get your green to your destination.

Getting through the airport with weed may seem impossible, but there are a few tricks you can use to help mask the cannabis smell and make it look more discreet within your baggage.  Don't whip out the million plastic bags, coffee grounds and duct tape though - we're not trying to be Pablo Escobar over here.  A smell proof marijuana case like the Happy Kit Deluxe can assist you in this step, as you can safely zip your flower inside and place the inconspicuous black case within your luggage in leu of a plastic bag full of paraphernalia.

While we're on the topic of scent, let's take a minute to talk about airport dogs.  You can take a deep breathe here - you'll be happy to know that the majority of dogs seen at airports and domestic flights are bomb sniffing dogs.  Drug dogs are generally only found at international terminals, but you'd never even think about flying to another country while holding, right?  Right.

 After you dab the sweat off your forehead and walk into the airport with your stash, the next step is going to be to keep your anxiety levels down.  Sure, you hear horror stories about massive drug busts in airports, but the reality is that TSA agents are not cops.  TSA is not looking to bust you for a few joints hidden in a pack of Q tips or some Cheeba Chews tucked away in your backpack - they're looking for weapons and other risks to the public.  They may look at you a little funny if your eyes are beet red because you decided to spend an extra half hour in the long-term parking garage with your rig and some wax (it's going to be a long day after all, isn't it?), but that's the worst you can expect.  Either that, or they'll just think to themselves "Man, I can't wait to get home and burn one".

After you make your way past security, keeping your cool the entire time, you've gotten through the scary part.  From here on out, your only job is to make sure that you don't open any compartments that could let out the stink of your stash.  Hopefully you didn't put your candy and green in the same compartment of your luggage!

 

Another thing to note is going to be your destination state, and any layovers you may have.  Any seasoned weed-smoking traveler knows that some states are friendlier to mosey through than others.  Ending up or have a layover in Oklahoma, Missouri or Arkansas?  Think about leaving the green at home and trying to find some when you land.  Flying non stop to California, Nevada, or any other green states?  You most likely don't have anything to worry about except not smoking too much of your stash in the car before you get on the plane.

 

The best news we can give is to never leave home without a weed travel kit so your essentials are not just loosely floating around your bag.  Why raise suspicion when it isn't necessary?

While there may be a common misconception that stoners are inherently lazy, the majority of people don't understand that marijuana does not slow down the avid traveler, it only makes the trip better.  It's not always easy to find a cannabis-friendly travel destination, so we have put together a list of our favorite five around the world.

 

 

Kingston, Jamaica

While it may seem obvious, Kingston is one our favorite destinations due to the lenient laws and low prices.  While marijuana is still technically illegal, there are loopholes that allow you to sign up adventures like a pot sampling tour (and buy flower for as low as $1.40 per gram).

 

 

Toronto and Vancouver, Canada

Our friends up north have become medically friendly, and have even started to adopt some Amsterdam-style customs.  While it's still technically illegal to have any green without a medical certificate, the lenient laws will generally cause cops to turn a blind eye if you're holding less than a quarter ounce.  Travel into the downtown area of either city and you'll even find many Amsterdam style cafes where you can enjoy a joint or bowl with your meal or morning coffee.

 

Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona is a magical place for cannabis users.  The city is so lenient towards the flower that you will even find vendors on the beach selling beer, coca cola, potato chips and hash all in one fell swoop - you don't even have to go looking for it!

 

Macchu Picchu, Peru

Our South American neighbors have decriminalized marijuana completely; you can have up to eight grams in your possession and nobody will bat an eye.  The loose laws make it surprisingly easy to get high and go to Macchu Picchu - a cannabis-friendly traveler's dream.

 

Amsterdam, Netherlands

Amsterdam will always be one of the top marijuana friendly travel destinations.  The decriminalization allows even tourists to have up to five grams of flower in public, and another law makes possession legal in coffee shops, so you can light up with your morning coffee and croissant.
