TSA Approves CBD-Oil Drug for Child Epilepsy on Flights

Changes to the “What Can I Bring?” list now make provisions for allowing authorized users to bring medical cannabis on both checked and carry-on luggage

TSA updates 'medical marijuana' regulations to reflect FDA-approved drug containing cannabidiol

TSA's new policy says CBD and some medical marijuana is allowed on carry-on bags and checked bags with "special instructions".

As the cannabis industry grows, all eyes are on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to define its regulation and enforcement approach to products containing cannabidiol.

Following the legalization of hemp-derived CBD on a federal level in December, manufacturers of CBD-infused products will be closely watching the Food and Drug Administration's first public hearing on the regulation of CBD products.

It now says medications containing hemp-derived CBD are legal to take aboard aircraft.

CBD was not legalized in the Farm Bill, but rather it was moved under the purview of the FDA, which immediately said companies can not add it to food or beverages.

"TSA was made aware of an FDA-approved drug that contains CBD oil for children who experience seizures from pediatric epilepsy", the organization confirmed in a statement to Fox News.

"To avoid confusion as to whether families can travel with this drug, TSA immediately updated TSA.gov once we became aware of the issue", the agency said.

Marijuana in its other non-medical forms, however, won't be allowed aboard commercial aircraft. Cannabis is classified by the DEA as a Schedule I drug, and thus federally illegal-and the TSA is a federal agency. These include some cannabis-infused products and CBD oils that have THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which remains illegal under federal law.

La température de l'eau tourne autour de 10 à 12 degrés, ce qui n'augure rien de bon pour les éventuels survivants. La police enquête sur les lieux", a déclaré le colonel de police Adrian Pal à la presse.


Possession of other forms of marijuana- and cannabis-infused products is illegal under federal law and the TSA's website notes its officers are required to report any suspected violations of law.

It's not clear how TSA intends to check whether a product contains THC, however.

CBD oils, or cannabinoid oils which are usually derived from the Cannabis sativa plant, are often sold as relaxation or pain-relief supplements.
