With recreational marijuana now legal in eight states, McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas is offering "amenesty boxes" for forgetful travelers to dispose of that unsmoked joint stuffed in luggage. While possession of marijuana for recreational use was legalized by Nevada voters in 2016 and took effect Jan. 1, 2017, the airport still bans marijuana posession on airport property to stay on the safe side of federal law.
Boxes were placed at passenger drop-off sites and car rental return sites. If you're into "green" tourism and find yourself with leftovers on the way to the airport, hopefully you remember to spread the wealth to a friend or a stranger in need. But, if you don't, you'll have these green boxes as a last resort to ditch the herb before hopping on the security line and beelining to the nearest Auntie Anne's for munchies.
