TSA finds pot hidden in peanut butter

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

Security screeners at Oakland International Airport recently found a little more than peanut butter inside a jar a man tried to take aboard his flight.

An x-ray pointed them to something stuffed inside a jar of Skippy Creamy Peanut Butter. That something turned out to be a bag of marijuana.

Police questioned the man and cited him. They also seized his pot.

Transportation Security Administration officials say it is at least the second time in the last four months that airport screeners have found pot hidden in peanut butter.
