Rental car workers at Denver International Airport are regularly finding marijuana left in rental cars, so customers can avoid being cited for carrying it through the airport, according to a report by Denver’s CBS4.
“It happens quite often,” a rental car employee told CBS4. “Every couple of days. I just throw it in the trash.”
Although small amounts of marijuana are legal in Colorado, the Denver airport requires airport travelers to discard their marijuana or they may face a citation, says the report.
“It’s illegal for you to take it across state lines, and since we are an airport, we’re not going to facilitate the transportation of marijuana illegally,” Stacey Stegman, a spokesperson for Denver International Airport, told CBS4.
Some renters have even attempted to “tip” rental car employees with the marijuana, says the report.
