Awkward Ways Employed To Smuggle Cannabis

Awkward Ways Employed To Smuggle Cannabis

Lately, I went to a festival and I had to sneak in my own weed. Feeling like a teenager about to be busted got me thinking of all of the hilarious incognito cannabis use that has occurred over the years; as well as all of the tricks which have been used to conceal it.

Considering that these won’t be quite as necessary in the future, I believe it’s time we look at a few of the ways we got by.

After all, we could all use a laugh or some new disguise thoughts …

This is my mother ’s trick from back in the 70’s and I almost lost it when she recommended it to smuggle joints into a festival… use peanut butter.

Triple bag your cannabis and get a jar of peanut butter that’s roughly double the size of your bag (if you’ve got a good deal of weed, you will need multiple jars). Hollow out the center of the jar but do not disturb the coating touching the glass.

Position your weed indoors and smooth a layer of peanut butter on top so that the jar appears undisturbed.

Guru ’s (according to my mother )

– couple will guess this disguise

– drug dogs love peanut butter so the cops will be thrown away

– you get a beautiful bonus and get to make peanut butter cookies (We ate lots of these growing up)

– You have to explain why you are travelling with your own personal peanut butter collection

(I’ll admit this is easier for some than others)

– The weight of the jar would be obviously off (an ounce of marijuana is definitely lighter than 3 cups of peanut butter)

Makeup bag (containing a large Quantity of tampons)

This trick was used by lots of my girlfriends and one of my most clever male friends.

It’s risky and totally relies on the awkwardness of the person searching your bag. Pulling this off completely is determined by tricking security into feeling like they are invading your privacy.

The best example I’ve ever seen of this trick working was when my man friend used it.

He brought the makeup and told security he had to deliver it for his girlfriend who was already inside. When they opened the bag and watched the tampons, they let him through right away.

Guru ’s

– When it works, your cannabis is in an easy to reach location

– It’s discreet


– For mepersonally, this trick has always worked but it’s a bit nerve-wracking

– If a drink explodes in your bag, your bud can get soaked

– If you lose your purse or have it stolen, its bye bye weed

On Your Individual

Strapping it to your own body or sticking it in a random pocket has usually been the go-to for most people. I, along with many other people, have stuffed their bras with buds. I know many people who’ve gone to the lengths of sewing secret pockets into clothing, hats, shoes and purses. This smuggling trend caught on fairly early and more and more clothing companies started to add key compartments to their own products.

If you wish to pull this one off, you need to be quite stealthy and creative in the area you put it and how you attach it.

Guru ’s

– It is very discreet if you make it through security

– Your cannabis is with you so there is no chance of losing it or having it stolen


– Your product can get damaged – crushed buds, flattened joints, shatter which begins to auto-butter… all are a reality thanks to hugs, body warmth and sitting on your weed by injury … Worse, your bud could smell like feet.

– Getting busted is embarrassing since it is going to occur during a pat down. Don’t underestimate this! ”They even poked my balls”, security patted him down everywhere and he firmly believed it was a close call.

With legalization coming, these issues will begin to be a thing of the past. Until then, if you have to sneak on your cannabis, I wish you the best of luck.
