I'm sure people do that, but it's risky. I don't have any statistics but it's not legal.

Now I just smoke about a third of a joint each evening. My short term memory is still impacted, particularly when it comes to driving. I sometimes forget how to get to my daughters apartment where she has been living for about 3 years. It's a good thing my wife remembers!
I don't want to alarm you, but what you're describing sounds more serious than short-term memory impairment. If you forget things that you used to know well, such as directions to a close relative's house, that isn't short-term memory, that's long-term. This is a reason for concern. Cannabis may or may not have anything to do with it. The short-term memory loss seen with cannabis is usually only temporary. Something else may be going on with you. I think you should be seen and evaluated by a neurologist.

No, it's not legal. That's the bad news. The good news is that TSA agents are not looking for cannabis. They are focused on finding terrorists with explosive devices. If they do find weed, they will not arrest you. They will confiscate it and refer you to local law enforcement, who may or may not take any legal action.

TSA agents? I wasn't thinking in terms of flying with it, but driving. I can't imagine trying to fly commercial airlines with contraband, but people do that, too. Crazy.

Yes, they do. It's risky. It's probably less risky to cross state lines in an automobile, but that depends on whether there are border checkpoints where your vehicle may be searched. I don't know much about that or how much of a risk that is. As a legal medical cannabis patient, I am so grateful to have the option to use it that I am not going to abuse the privilege by doing anything illegal.

Has anyone seen the news. TSA now allows medical MJ. See the TSA website.

My last flight, I got pulled over, and my purse searched....I had to much change in my wallet. I would never try to get away with anything. The sweat pouring down my face, would give me away.

I have way too much respect for the law; they'll put your butt in jail, even if they're friends. They're required to.

My concern is moving somewhere that has med (but not rec) and being told my degenerative osteoarthritis and peripheral neuropathy is not sufficient to qualify. I'd have moved but be in the same boat I am now--no legal access. This might happen, for example, if I moved to Tucson. Maybe Santa Fe, too.
I think people are suggesting you use it WHILE you're in a location where it is legal. Might have to be a bit of an extended visit of several weeks to experience all the benefits but no one is telling you to break the law and transport it over state lines or anything. No pearl clutching is required...and you are considering using it even though it's not legal everywhere which I guess some people can't get their heads around?

Pearl clutching?? Wow. Okay. Ageist and sexist at the same time.

You wrote: "no one is telling you to break the law and transport it over state lines or anything. ."

No: if you'll read through the thread, someone posted the exact and specific recommendation to buy where it's legal, and then take it home.

Many friends in non-legal states just drive or take the train to the closest legal state and stock up for the whole year. no reason to leave your home unless you're up for an adventure.

not worth a move, but maybe only an occasional road trip. Always good to have a reason to take a road trip!

Truly? Ask discreetly among friends and neighbors and you'll find someone nice to work with before lunch tomorrow.
You'll probably have lots of other common interests too. Link
