I'm confused. Flying involves being searched by Federal authorities. And isn't any state border crossing potentially federal regardless of mode of transportation?

Did you mean to say the reverse i.e. driving stops are probably state charges?

I've read that, if you're flying out of a state where it's legal, and TSA finds it, the most they will (can?) do is turn you over to local authorities - who will do nothing, since it's legal there. So at most, you're going to lose your weed. On top of that, it's specifically something the TSA website says they're NOT looking for when you go through security - so unless your bag is suspicious in some way or requires further screening for other reasons, they're not going to find it anyway. Of course, the location of the airport you're flying INTO could be a different story, depending on the legality there. But who ever gets searched when leaving a plane or airport? If you're not being totally skeezy, I wouldn't see much risk there. Only carry-on, never checked baggage. And any dogs you ever see at airports are only trained to sniff for explosives.

Now, by no means am I saying that I've ever flown out of California while carrying with complete success.

Feds are/have been hands off re weed. Local sheriffs stopping drivers leaving Colorado not so much.

My experience is extremely anecdotal, but I haven't seen anything out of the ordinary in any border crossings in Washington, California (weirder than usual), Nevada, or Colorado. The Idaho-Washington border on I-90 was one I specifically was on the lookout for because Idaho is definitely not weed friendly and their cops are extremely, shall we say, aggressive, but I didn't see anything that looked like they were targeting people on their way back from dispensaries.


For black citizens:
IL = (WA + OR ) X 5

Idaho and WA/OR might not be telling since Idaho police have a lot fewer black motorists to profile and feed into the prison system than Iowa police will have.

Among the flurry of awesomeness I missed that the general assembly passed the Keep Illinois Families Together Act which forbids local law enforcement from helping ICE out with deportations. It also bars all state and local municipality law enforcement officers from asking a person detained, arrested, stopped about their citizenship status, which also applies to anyone who calls the law for help.

How Legal Weed Is Killing America’s Most Famous Marijuana Farmers

In the forests of Northern California, the regulatory state—not the DEA—is forcing thousands of growers out of business, or back underground.

Wow, thats great. Exact opposite of MO where statewide progressive issue may pass, and then the GOP legislature goes about undermining it

Legal booze killed moonshiners. Now plenty of communities involve successful local breweries, distilleries and wineries.

Netflix Murder Mountain docuseries seemed to echo this. (Series is decent by the way, but way too long)

Yup - big news uphere in the Rogue Valley just over the border from California. My son has worked in the grows since 2014 or so and has seen the fast changes from illegal to boom to 'jesus, we can't make any money!". Same story.

*outside New England there's no such thing as a blue state. There are only red states that have big enough cities to outweigh all the red. That's the secret, IMO, to picking out a place to live when you have that freedom and don't want to live in a big city: pick a state with a huge city that generates jobs, tax revenue, infrastructure. Move to rural WA, OR, IL, NY, CA. Sure, you'll have to put up with rural conservative evangelicals day-to-day, but the highways will be smooth and you can spark a J. Lot better than moving to Atlanta and being governed by the wackjobs.

Living in rural NH going on 2 years now. Not nearly as conservative as expected. A ton less than the rural parts of other states we've lived in - MO, WI, TX, CO.
