    You don't lose snacks - most foods are not against TSA rules. They just might ask you to pull them out so they can be screened separately from your bags.

    I have been flying at least once a month this year and never had to take out snacks. I have heard about it - but never have been bothered. Due to (attempted) diet, we carry lots of snacks.

    Right, but if the candy bar is labeled "cannabis chocolate bar" that might be a problem:D And chocolate sometimes shows up in scans as something they need to check.

    .. never mind... some of this stuff is so obvious... not gonna go there.

    Then again, some people need help flying. An pro ball player raised hell last week saying TSA spilled his Mother's ashes. They were in his CHECKED LUGGAGE. Who is the idiot there?

    This entire subject (and possibly TSA screening too ;-) is "YMMV" - your mileage may vary. So know the rules and make your own decisions about how YOU are comfortable proceeding.

    Try taking a (full size) electric toothbrush. "Bag check, female, lane 4!" She takes a quick look at it ... "oh, never mind!" :) :) :)

    No experience at LAS yet, but I have brought edibles through DEN and PHX. Both times I mixed 5 or so of the gummies with a bag of starburst sour gummies. They aren't exactly the same size but unless you look close it isn't all that noticeable. At DEN they swabbed the bag and let me go. At PHX they swabbed the bag and detected a bomb or something? They asked me if they could examine it and I said sure. They glanced at and said it looked like a snack and let me go. I guess it probably helps that I am an ordinary looking white male. TSA isn't there to look for drugs so if you don't try to bring back a pound of weed or try to conceal it in a ridiculous way you should be fine.

    I know a guy :whistle: who had no issues bringing back to his home state a vape pen and 3 cartridges in his carry-on. I think he said he kinda camoflaged them in a bag of metallic souvenirs (fridge magnets, clips, pens, etc).

    Here's How I got around that on my last trip. I bought gummy candy edibles at a dispensary. I visited a candy store while I was in town, and bought about a half-pound of bulk (non-MJ) gummy-type candy of various sizes and shapes, which went into a clear plastic bag. I removed the (MJ) edibles (coin-shaped) from their packaging and put them in the same bag with the regular candy. Took it all home in my carry-on - TSA didn't blink an eye.
