FDA Now Allowing Cannabis Epilepsy Drug On Planes

The Food and Drug Administration is now allowing flights to permit passengers with pediatric epilepsy drugs on board.

It’s an update to the policy for the TSA. The update regulation reads in part that “possession of marijuana and certain cannabis-infused products” remain illegal under federal law but the TSA has been made aware that the FDA has approved CBD oil for children affected by seizures from pediatric epilepsy.

TSA officials say they are in the process of getting all of their agents up to speed on the changes. They note that during security screening anyone found with any illegal substance will be referred to a law enforcement officer.
