Travelers at either of Chicago’s airports may have noticed something new while passing through security after the holidays.

Since recreational marijuana sales began in Massachusetts a year ago, some inns are attracting new visitors by permitting pot use on the premises.

The U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI) are a tropical paradise in the Caribbean, known for their luxurious resorts, gorgeous natural landscapes, turquoise water… and perhaps, soon, legal marijuana to accompany it all.

While traveling with cannabis is still technically illegal -- even when you’re going to or coming from a legal state, products like smell-proof containers and luxe leather cases are essential for travelers willing to risk transporting their stash with subtlety.

"To ensure safe travel for all residents and visitors, we're encouraging all travelers not to bring cannabis through Chicago's airports as it still remains illegal under federal law," said Chicago Police Commander William Mullane.

As US states continue to legalise cannabis for medical and recreational use, an awkward tangle of conflicting state and federal laws is proving confusing for airport passengers.
