Las Vegas airport introduced weed disposal boxes so tourists enjoying the state’s legal marijuana don’t smuggle drugs across the border. The boxes are a ‘blunt’ way to ensure stoners on the ground aren’t also high flyers.
Nevada legalized recreational marijuana but, as it’s still illegal under federal law, it isn’t okay to bring legally purchased weed across state lines. Under federal law, marijuana is classed as a Schedule 1 controlled substance, the same as heroin.
McCarran International Airport has installed 13 “marijuana amnesty drop boxes,” the Las Vegas Sun reports, so travelers can offload their stash before they go through security.
