Hi all - Im flying from JFK to Rome (FCO). I want to bring my weed vape pen. Has anyone done this?

Hi all - I’m flying from JFK to Rome (FCO). I want to bring my weed vape pen. Has anyone done this? Any issues/things to think about?

My plan is to put the cart itself in my checked bag with my gf’s makeup and toiletries. I’ll keep the battery portion in my carryon per TSA regs.

Any insight/thoughts would be appreciated.

    Have you thought about just not doing drugs for the duration of the trip? You can quit at any time, right?

            by a law student actually but unfortunately for you actual lawyers also say im right:
            "So, what’s the deal when you’re traveling at an airport in a state where marijuana has been legalized? The short answer is—it’s illegal. This is because, technically, airports are considered federal property and, as such, follow federal law rather than state law. So, even if you’re traveling through an airport that is physically located in a state where marijuana is legal, you can still be charged with a federal crime for possessing or using marijuana in a U.S. airport.

            It’s also a federal crime to carry marijuana onto an airplane that flies over U.S. airspace. The same laws apply here—U.S. airspace is governed by federal law, which is why the substance cannot be carried onto any flight in this country."

              That's really not the real risk here. The risk is the international arrival in Italy, the italian legal system sucks, and while you probably wouldn't do serious time for this, by any means, getting caught would interfere with any travel in europe in the future.

              I’m an actual lawyer at a V50 firm. You’re embarrassing yourself lol. You just listed a bunch of random bs charges - no statutory references or anything - and even then you missed half the attempt/conspiracy charges.

              But it’s all besides the point because no shit interstate travel is federal - but the TSA has said they’re not even looking for pot. The only agency to care about is Italian customs. So you’ve totally missed the entire premise just so you can word vomit some half baked common law crim law essay. That’s not what a good lawyer does lol.

              Drop out. And if you don’t, give me your name so I can shit can your resume the second I see it.

      How do you foresee the arrest materializing? Do they search or scan all checked luggage? Is it dogs? I’m reading a lot of stories of people doing it with no problem.

        Just buy some morrocan hashish when you get there. As they say, when in Rome, do what the Romans do.

        It's random and imo the dogs are just a pretext to search suspicious looking people buy they'd probably smell your already used oil vape because that shit stinks. Bringing an obvious cannabis product in is stupid. Worst case is you're in a shitty Italian jail until they figure out what to do with you and then you'll probably get slapped with a liftetime ban on entering Schengen countries.

        The way to do this is buy some edibles that absolutely pass for regular candy and repackage them. Wash your hands, put them in some kind of sealed container, wash the container.

          I’m going to bring a new cart, not used, and I’ll remove anything indicating it’s thc.

          Agree with you, though, that just grabbing whatever they smoke in Italy is lowest risk.

            Just FYI. Mixed in with toiletries is a super common thing morons do that think they're clever that border guards absolutely know about. A lot of people try to stick these in shampoo or lotion thinking the opaque liquid will hide anything. If they suspect something it's the first place they look.

            residue in and on the device will still be enough to get you locked up
            remember, even testing positive for THC in your hair from having smoked 3 months ago is enough to get locked up in a lot of countries

          True, if you hit a vape, the scent lingers in the top portion, where a small amount of the vapor condenses on its way into your lungs. But if you bring a cart straight from a dispensary, there is very little odor.
          Edibles are ideal for traveling stoners. Mix with regular candy that looks similar.

    Sniffer dogs (and there will fricking be dogs at the airport) will be able to smell it no problem so I would say don't bring it. It will be insanely easy to buy kush in fricking Rome of all places anyway tbh if you aren't a total moron. All that aside Italy is a beautiful country with an amazing culture and rich history - you don't have to be stoned to enjoy that I hope (maybe the food is an exception though as presumably even more amazing with the munchies) .

    Don't be moronic if you absolutely can't do without when you get to Rome go to any busy park or plaza and look for the most coal black african you've ever seen and just tell him what you want. They're easy to spot because they're just standing around looking at people and usually alone.

    I always bake edibles before I travel. Not worth the legal risks, however small. If you're super paranoid, pack them as a lunch. So with your edibles, include cashews and a banana or something.

    Airport dogs in the US aren't looking for drugs, and really the TSA isn't either. If they find weed stuff they refer it to local law enforcement. As for foreign law enforcement, I'd prepare to have your cavities searched.

    You don't want to be Brittney Griner'ed, anon. Conceal the cart well, if you decide to bring it against your better judgment. Are you sure you can't get a cart in Rome? Or just buy some bud on the street and smoke it with a pipe?

    Don't be a moron and travel with weed. Some countries have the death penalty if you're caught travelling with drugs. TSA might catch you as well and pretty sure its still a felony in the states. Just buy some weed from a guy in Rome.

      Most airports are looking for traffickers not the people who forgot or have some edibles in their bag that might simply be candy unless you're going to a mudslide country. OP most likely COULD get away with it but why fricking risk literally a gg life over no re, for a vape pin? That will stick out during a scan because it's not a common object like a cellphone or such. Chances are OP would get away with it, chances are OP won't do it though.

      Also pretty much any club in Italy has some contact for weed, why not just get it there?
