They made me get rid of the marijuana and throw everything into the garbage
I’ve only had my medical marijuana card for the past 3 months and I don’t really know all of the rules and regulations. I got caught in the airport with a bunch of medical marijuana in my bag. I thought it was going to be fine to take medical marijuana with me, because I had a medical marijuana card and I was traveling to a state with legal recreational marijuana. I did not realize that you cannot travel with marijuana on your person. You are not supposed to take the medicine anywhere except within the state where you live. When I got to the airport, I checked my bag. I had the marijuana supplies in my bag that I took on the plane with me. It went through the scanner and I could see a couple of people looking at the bag intently. A lady called me over to the security area and she asked me to identify the items in my bag. I immediately blurted out that there was medical marijuana in my bag. The lady at the Philadelphia airport told me that I was going to be arrested. The security system called the Philadelphia police and the state police. The Philadelphia Police Department did not think that I was intentionally trying to break the law. They made me get rid of the marijuana and throw everything into the garbage. I had almost $200 worth of medical marijuana supplies from the Philadelphia dispensary and I hated to throw everything away. They wouldn’t even let me put the items into my car after I tried to sneak them through security.
