Pot Drop Box At Colorado Springs Airport


By KMVT News

Colorado Springs Airport, Colorado (CNN) 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 in the amnesty box, so you 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.

Two amnesty boxes are installed at the Colorado Springs Airport.
