Travelers who want to bring their marijuana stash through Los Angeles International Airport will get no arguments from the airport police.

With the legalization of cannabis in the state, the airport updated its policy to note that since California law allows individuals over 21 to have up to 28.5 grams of marijuana, airport police have no jurisdiction to arrest anyone carrying that amount or less through the airport.

The policy does note, however, that Transportation Security Administration screeners are under federal jurisdiction, and "passengers should be aware that marijuana laws vary state by state and they are encouraged to check the laws of the states in which they plan to travel."

TSA spokeswoman Lorie Dankers, however, told The Associated Press recently that agents won't take away marijuana they find away but will summon the police and let them deal with it.

"TSA's focus is on terrorism and security threats to the aircraft and its passengers," Dankers said.
