The officer searched through my bag and found the cannabis.
I went to visit my Mom last month, while I was out of school for the summer. My mom moved to the west coast when I went to college. I attend school back east, with a couple of my friends. I am in my junior year of college and old enough to consume pot and alcohol. Recreational pot isn’t legal in the state where I live, but it is legal in the state where my mom lives. When I went to visit her, the first thing I wanted to see was a legal recreational dispensary. We went to a shop and purchased some items to consume while I was on vacation. After a week, I still had a few items left and I didn’t want to leave them behind. After all, I spent almost $100 on the cannabis products. I carefully packed up the items in bubble wrap and inside of a bag. When we left for the airport, I felt safe and secure with the package in my bag. I was in the building for less than 30 minutes and an officer with a dog walked up to me and asked me to follow him to the security room. I thought I was going to end up in prison. The officer searched through my bag and found the cannabis. I started crying and I almost peed in my pants. Instead of issuing a ticket, he confiscated all of the items and allowed me to travel back to my home destination. I was so scared and terrified. I would never attempt to try that again.
