I am a former narcotics officer who was cross-trained and worked joint operations with the DEA, FBI and ATF. There are many ways to safely get marijuana through airports. I will teach you every way I know here.
What is the safest way to fly with weed?
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 don’t know any other way to explain how to keep you out of a cage so forgive anything that sounds distasteful.
A NeverGetBusted fan followed one of my tips and this was 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, and 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 to hide your stash is the crotch area of a male. Airport security is primarily interested in detecting weapons and bombs. Small amounts of pot are their lowest priority. The metal detectors and X-ray scanners show you are not carrying destructive weapons. Unless you are acting crazy, strip searches are almost never conducted at airports.
What if they use full body scanners?
Many of the new airports have full body scanners but you are allowed to deny the use of these machines. Many people comment that this may open you up to a more thorough search but not usually.
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 person being strip searched unless they have already been arrested for another crime.
Can you put marijuana in your bag while flying?
Small amounts of pot will only be discovered during a weapons or bomb search. Hide your stash in an area that is too small to store a secret a weapon. Hiding a joint inside an ink pen works really well because a destructive weapon cannot fit inside the tiny void.
Checked or Carry-on?
It’s better to secret your stash in checked luggage instead of your carry-on. Checked bags are rarely searched and when they are, it’s less extensive than a carry-on.
Pot brownies and other marijuana edibles are an excellent choice. Make sure to mix them with random unlaced food. The best are hard candies which are easy to make. Be careful when you are visiting family. Little kids love to look through your bags.
Vaporizers such as O-pen are great because they are mistaken as nicotine pens. Throw them in with your ink pens and other electronics.
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.
