TSA now allows flyers to travel with drug derived from marijuana

Changes to the “What Can I Bring?” list now make provisions for allowing authorized users to bring medical cannabis on both checked and carry-on luggage

An FDA-approved drug that contains CBD oil for children who experience seizures from pediatric epilepsy will now be allowed on flights, according to the Transportation Security Administration's new guidelines, The Hill reported. To date, the FDA has only approved one product containing CBD for use as a drug; in June 2018, the FDA approved Epidiolex for the treatment of epilepsy. As soon as the agency learned of the drug, its "What Can I Bring" section on the TSA website was updated accordingly.

All forms of marijuana were previously prohibited in checked and carry-on bags.

Following the legalization of hemp-derived CBD on a federal level in December, manufacturers of CBD-infused products will be closely watching the Food and Drug Administration's first public hearing on the regulation of CBD products. The TSA has updated their cannabis policies to be more in line with changes to federal law that saw certain cannabis products legalized nationally at the end of a year ago. "TSA officers are required to report any suspected violations of law, including possession of marijuana and certain cannabis infused products".

Ally Horner, the co-owner of Your CBD Store in Spring, Texas, 25 miles north of Houston, said questions about traveling with CBD products are common among her customers. Hemp-derived CBD is legal per the Hemp Farming Act of 2018.

"A lot of people are buying the CBD as an alternative to opiates, and having them be able to travel safely and not get into trouble would be huge for everybody", she said.

In November, Michigan residents legalized recreational marijuana. In addition, the agency has expressed concern that allowing CBD in food could dampen incentives for drug makers to conduct research into CBD's health benefits.
