Now that Illinois can sell marijuana to people under the age of 21 for six months, there is no doubt that herbalists from neighboring states will be drawn there with the sole purpose of getting this product without problems.
In fact, state law allows visiting adults to buy marijuana at any retail dispensary as long as they have a photo ID with them.
Such buyers can buy half of the amount allowed by local residents, that is, 15 grams of marijuana.
Finding a place to smoke can be difficult. It is not recommended to return to your state with such luggage.
Remember, smuggling any amount of marijuana across state lines is considered drug trafficking. Each state has its own penalties, which can lead to both jail and heavy fines.
However, many of you will still take risks and try to bring marijuana home. We have compiled a small list of rules that must be followed when engaging in such illegal activity.
- 1 Travel only in a clean car
- 2 Make sure that the vehicle is in full working order, all headlights and warning lights should work properly. Put your salon in perfect order. Cops rarely search clean cars. Get rid of the junk food bags and debris on the floor, remove your clothes and anything normally left in the back seat. The police officer shouldn’t have the slightest reason to suspect the presence of cannabis in your car. A clean car gives the illusion that a person with the same clear conscience is driving it; this is not a 100% guarantee, but it will certainly help. Don’t smoke marijuana in the car
- 3 Strictly obey traffic regulations
- 4 Better to bring something edible or vaping
Only travel in a clean car
There are certain stereotypes in which there is a considerable grain of truth. Traveling to Illinois in a battered car with stickers from the Grateful Dead is a surefire way to get the attention of the police.
Your best bet is to hit the road in a more or less new and well-maintained car, with no window stickers or any other decals that might give a police officer a reason to identify you as a weed-lover.
Your whole appearance should say: “Mr. Officer, I have a job, I pay taxes, I am a law-abiding citizen and have nothing to do with marijuana.”
Make sure that the vehicle is in full working order, all headlights and signal lights should work correctly.

Don’t smoke marijuana in the car
The stump is clear that a trip under a light high is much better, because the monotony of the path is easier to tolerate. But smuggling any amount of marijuana from a green state to a forbidden state is one of your biggest mistakes.
If a police officer stops you for any reason (crossing the center line, speeding), then, smelling the grass, he will certainly search your car.
Otherwise, it is best to choose another way to get to Illinois. It is necessary to exclude any reason that gives the cop even “think” that they smoked marijuana in the salon.
Obey traffic rules strictly
This is an obvious fact, but we must emphasize the importance of obeying traffic rules. A person with marijuana should not drive. Travel like a responsible citizen and you will be fine.
Better to bring something edible or vaping
Many people prefer bumps, but they have a very strong smell, which all cops have already learned to recognize.
The smell of hemp will seep wherever you hide it.
The cop can smell the grass inside the cabin, even if it seems to you that there is no smell (you are just used to it), and then he will definitely call the dog handler with the dog.
Our advice is to travel only with a hemp snack or “charged” vaping devices. They don’t smell like raw buds and are less noticeable.
