COLORADO SPRINGS — Travelers leaving the Colorado Springs Airport have done a good job of stashing their marijuana at home or in their cars before they fly.
Amnesty boxes, which were added to the airport in January to help prevent traveling with pot, have been sparsely used for marijuana, said Sgt. Matt Harrell of the Colorado Springs Police Department airport unit.
“I think people know,” he said. “They haven’t been trying it.”
While some travelers have dropped off edibles, marijuana vapor cigarettes and grams of marijuana, he said those aren’t the most common items.
“What we’ve gotten more than anything is unused prescription medication,” Harrell said.
