Thats how most Canadians get their smoke through airport security,right in that little pocket in the crotch of your gaunch and they have been doing it that way for many years.
You can get an ounce and a half of dried vacuum packed weed in the crotch of your fruit of the looms and if that was petn it would have blown that plane out of the sky.
I only know this because of the guys coming to camp that got caught.
Airlines have to submit their manifests with this information before they are allowed to enter US airspace. A case in point, a flight from Fredricton NB to Toronto was turned back because a passenger on it was on a US no fly list, even though it was a domestic flight. All flights from Atlantic Canada fly through US airspace in order to get to Montreal or Toronto. How did this guy get on a flight destined to the US? Well, he wasn't on the no fly list, gee, Josef Islam aka Cat Stevens was, and he was denied boarding. I dunno, go figure.
Ummm, unless airport security is conducted by cops, contraband is none of their concern. Airport security are not cops unless they have been deputized, they have no more power of arrest or detention than regular citizens. Their concern is security, period. You have the right not to be searched if you choose not to board an aircraft, and they can only confiscate substances that are banned, weed does not fall into that category. They do have the right to notify the authorities if they believe you have he stuff, but let the courts figure out the legalities afterward. Many of these security folks think they have police powers, and when push comes to shove I think they will be sorely mistaken, and one day they will find that out by way of very large monetary judgments against them. But only when someone does the a very un Canadian thing, fights back against abuse of power.
It was pretty apparent what he was getting close to because the other passengers all started laughing.
I was flying on a bloody beechcraft fer crisakes.
They took away my toothbrush,guess they didnt want me rushing the cockpit and performing some dental hygiene on the pilot.
I used to keep a travelers toothbrush in my jacket cuz they allways lost my luggage.
