Sea-Tac passengers packing pot don't get it confiscated, TSA says

Recreational pot has been legal in our state since 2013, but it has never been legal to carry it into an airport.

Packing pot is not only common at Sea-Tac International Airport -- but no one is ever stopped when they do it; despite it is illegal to carry marijuana on a plane.
The federal government strictly forbids marijuana on carry-on bags or checked luggage, and the penalty for doing so could result with a felony charge.
The TSA said security officers do not search for marijuana or other drugs.
In the event marijuana is observed during security screening, TSA will refer the matter to a law enforcement officer.
KIRO 7 News spoke to Port of Seattle police who said they've never confiscated pot or made a single marijuana arrest since it was legalized two-and-a-half years ago.
