Pot Amnesty Box Installed at Airport

Here’s something you’ve likely never seen at an airport. It’s an amnesty box for prescription drugs — and marijuana.

While officials at the Colorado Springs Airport encourage passengers to leave their pot at home, if they forget they can deposit it here — so they don’t risk breaking a federal law by taking it through security.

While possession of marijuana is allowed in the state of Colorado, it is still considered an illegal controlled substance under federal law, which applies at the airport.
