Plane marijuana ban accepted

DENVER — Officials say Denver’s airport is seeing few challenges to its marijuana possession ban.

Airport spokesman Heath Montgomery told The Denver Post Thursday that 10 people have been stopped trying to take marijuana through Transportation Security Administration checkpoints. None were cited.

Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson says people have cooperated when officers told them to discard their marijuana or leave it in their cars or with the people who brought them to the airport. Jackson says since it is legal to possess pot in small quantities under Colorado law, police have not arrested anyone with it at the airport.

Montgomery says if police were to cite someone, it would be an administrative charge under airport rules. The fine for a first offense is $150.
