TSA Now Permits FDA-Approved Epilepsy Drug Containing Cannabis on Flights
A pediatric epilepsy drug containing cannabis that has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration is now permitted on flights, according to the Transportation Security Administration.
The agency recently updated its guidance to passengers on what can be brought aboard aircraft, indicating that — subject to “special instructions” — there are forms of medical marijuana that can be brought on board or placed in checked luggage.
TSA confirmed the updated rules to CNN, noting that “possession of marijuana and certain cannabis-infused products” remains illegal under federal law, but said the agency “was made aware of an FDA-approved drug that contains CBD oil for children who experience seizures from pediatric epilepsy.”
