I am a former narcotics officer and through my time there I learned a lot about drugs. I ran strings and was consulted by the DEA on several occasions for drug busts. There are many ways to get it through. I will only cover a couple here.
What is the safest way to fly with weed?
I know the safest way to sneak marijuana through airports is to place a small amount in the crotch area of a female. Small quantities fit perfectly in a tampon tube. This method can be used whether it is “that time of month” or not. I apologize for anything that sounds un tasteful. I don’t know any other way to explain certain techniques that will help keep you out of a cage.
A NeverGetBusted fan followed this tip and here is her experience:
“Okay I’m a girl and I just tried this method when flying to Florida, which worked. I fly out of Philadelphia which is a big airport. I did Sara’s method with the pad. I put some weed in a dub bag, double bagged it, taped that, and then put it in another bag, & taped it again. I got a big pad, cut a little slit to the middle of the pad, took out some cotton, placed the weed in the middle of the pad under the center portion, put some cotton back on, then taped it. When going through security I was gonna ask for a pat down rather than the X-ray machines but I ended up only going through a metal detector so I didn’t have to ask. And there ya go, I was safe. And I made it.”
What if I am not a girl?
The second best place is the crotch area of a male. Airport security is primarily interested in passengers carrying weapons and bombs. You can be glad they mostly don’t care about small quantities of pot. After screening with metal detectors, police know you dont have destructive weapons. Strip searches are random unless your acting crazy. So a crotch search is rare.
What if they use full body scanners?
Many of the new airports have full body scanners. It is hard to decide what is best. The best option is to not bring it. Failing that use one of the alternatives like vaporizers or edibles. You are allowed to request to not use the body scanners. Many people comment that this may open you up to thorough searching if they are not busy.
What if there are dogs?
A K-9 alert will only trigger a search of your luggage and pockets but not your crotch. I have not heard of any reports of strip searches being conducted in airports. Unless you already have been arrested for a crime.
Can you put marijuana in your bag while flying?
Small amounts of pot will only be discovered during a weapons or bomb search. Hiding your stash in an area that is too small to store a secret a weapon. For instance, hiding a joint inside an ink pen works well. As a weapon cannot fit inside the tiny void.
Checked or Carry-on?
It’s better to secret your stash in checked luggage instead your carry-on. Checked bags are rarely searched at all. When they are, the search is not as extensive as the searches conducted on carry-on bags.
Pot brownies and other marijuana edibles are an excellent choice. Make sure to mix them with random unlaced food. The best are hard candies and they are not hard to make. Please be careful when your visiting family. Little kids love to look through your bags.
You can also try vaporizers like Open. These are mistaken as nicotine. Throw them in with your pens and other electronics. Some people don’t like these. But they are much safer to travel with. Also, you don’t have to find places to consume without getting in trouble, as even where weed is legal. Public consumption is not. It is never safe to smuggle large amounts of marijuana through a public airport.

Shampoo hiding, and Containers
Yes, thank you for the comments for pointing this out. You can hide it in your liquids. Just make sure you wrap it tight and keep it small or they will make you throw it away. Lots of head shops these days sell storage that looks like other things. Some of these a really great, so look around and see what you can find that will work going through the airport carry-on security.
