I saw this article too and thought it was interesting. After reading it, I searched to see how the Denver airport was handling the same situation... I got the impression Denver doesn't really care. I think it was a NYT article I read that said about a dozen people were stopped by the TSA with weed in I forget what year. They were asked to discard the item... No arrests. I guess the TSA is more interested in bombs than weed. Makes sense to me.

TSA has no criminal jurisdiction to arrest someone for pot. They handle passenger safety.

In the Denver article it said TSA called local law enforcement 12 times for pot.

Sorry for being unclear.

The TSA’s official position is that they do not care about and are not searching for drugs, but if found they will call local law enforcement.

How about pills?

Let's say TSA finds pills in an unmarked container; the passenger says they're his, but he does not have them in the prescribed pill bottle, nor does he have the written prescription for them.

What will TSA do, if anything?

The TSA will probably test them for explosives, but I've never had my pills taken out of any bag, ever. At the border once CBP game me crap for putting my Aleve in with my Tylenol Cold medication and warned me to keep things in their original bottles.

But law enforcement and dogs work the airports, and I would not be surprised if checked luggage is checked for drugs as well.

They will take the 5k in bills and pocket it.

Isn't that what trash bins are for? Are they "recycling" these drugs?

I was in vegas and bought shatter and vape supplies. No odor.
Was given free joints for the purchase
cant take those on a plane due to odor
Gave the joints away to what looked like homeless on the street
They were very appreciative
