Yeah, so it’s a cover…. So what? The video, alone, makes it worth its weight in pressed vinyl. Music by Tommy Chong, and lyric credits include both Cheech & Chong, they originally inked this modern pop/country classic with the movie ‘Up in Smoke’ in mind.
However, this version features a better metered approach to the music, which makes it a bit more peppy. Immigrant Union is an Australian band fronted by a dude named Bob that I met once in Portland, at a cool recording studio. When they first got going, this band featured Courtney Barnett for a while. Another dude, Mitchell, who grows weed for Bondi Farms introduced me, and we all smoked a fatty blunt together on New Year’s Eve of 2019 -> 2020. Good times.
the time budtenders are asked about marijuana at the airport. I’m not going to
lie the first time or two I was asked, I didn’t feel comfortable speaking on
after legalization, (between 2012-2014) I was under the impression that it was
still illegal to have it at the airport and TSA would strictly follow the
federal laws. Which state that marijuana is a schedule 1 drug, and if you got
caught with a schedule 1 drug at the airport you could very likely be going to
a federal penitentiary.
Kyle approaches this question much differently. Now a days when I get asked,
“Is it cool if I bring some weed back with me on the plane?” or “How much
marijuana can I fly out of Sea-Tac with?” I reply with one simple statement.
depends on where you’re flying. I usually elaborate further depending on their
answer with a yada yada don’t be flying to Texas, or a yada yada if you’re
flying into Cali you good Dogg.
the purpose of this little instructional ill give my honest official weed at
the airport response.
Lets start with the depending on where you’re flying into statement in mind. If I was flying into California or Nevada and I didn’t want to mess around with the expensive prices when I were to land I might pack an 1/8th or two or three in my carry-on luggage. In California the legal limit is about one ounce of flower and eight grams of oil for people 21 years of age and older. In Nevada the limit varies slightly at one ounce of flower and 3.5 grams of oil. Therefore if I was landing in either of those states I would feel comfortable carrying a legal limit’s worth.
think that in my case I would never check a bag that had marijuana in it
especially if I wasn’t landing in a legal state.
to a TSA instagram post from last 4-20 they jokingly alluded to the fact that
they are not looking for marijuana but it is their job requirement to notify
when it is found.
“Let us be blunt: TSA officers DO NOT search for marijuana or other illegal drugs. Our screening procedures are focused on security and detecting potential threats. But in the event a substance appears to be marijuana or a cannabis infused product, we’re required by federal law to notify law enforcement. This includes items that are used for medicinal purposes.”

When I read the quote from TSA i understand it as, as long as local law enforcement has no problem with me carrying the given amount of marijuana when I step outside the airport then I should be fine, but they don’t straight up say that, and legally they are probably not advised to.
According to a Kiro7 article it is legal to have fewer than 40 grams of marijuana in your checked bag or carry-on when you arrive at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.
In Washington State the legal carry limit is one ounce of flower and seven grams of oil, 40 grams of marijuana is almost 1.5 times the legal limit so I have no idea how they came up with that one. Let me real quick throw a disclaimer out to make the bosses happy, at NO point in this post am I offering advice on or advising to fly through an airport with any sort of marijuana, pot, weed, cannabis, ganga, sensimilla, grass, or any other colloquialism.
