PITTSBURGH — Transportation Security Administration officers at Pittsburgh International Airport reportedly found marijuana hidden inside of a jar of peanut butter in July.
TSA spokesperson Lisa Farbstein posted on Twitter Thursday that three vape canisters that had marijuana inside of them were wrapped in plastic bags and then placed into a jar of Jif peanut butter.
“The traveler told officials that the canisters were for medical purposes, but still thought he should try to conceal them,” which Farbstein said was not a good idea.
According to WPXI, TSA does not actively search for drugs during their screenings but if they do find any drugs, they do get confiscated and the police are notified.
Farbstein also posted on Twitter that TSA found two rounds of military-grade ordnance in a bag on July 31. The rounds triggered an alarm, according to WPXI. The rounds were discovered to be ineffective.
