Dear Stoner: Will an airport physique scan recognize edibles and a tiny slice of wax? That appears like a improved option than my toiletry bag, which will get an X-ray.

Dear Allen: What do you feel these physique scans are, Bub? An ocular pat-down from a bored Transportation Safety Administration agent? Despite the fact that not technically X-rays, the millimeter-wave scanners at most airports use radio waves to see if any objects are stowed away beneath your clothing or in your physique prior to you pass via safety.

Pictures from these physique scans are not as defined as X-rays, but they do not have that a lot to sift via apart from clothing, in contrast to a bag filled with your crap. And trust me: TSA agents are a lot extra keen to verify out something added they come across on your particular person than they are a couple of innocent-searching gummies in a bag or wax in your toiletries. Hiding some meals with weed in it or some gunky-searching wax is not precisely rocket science, but hiding in plain sight is not the way to go right here. Figure out some thing improved.
