Las Vegas airport introduced weed disposal boxes so tourists enjoying the state’s legal marijuana don’t smuggle drugs across the border. Nevada legalized recreational marijuana but, it’s still illegal under federal law, it isn’t okay to bring legally purchased weed across state lines. Under federal law, marijuana is classed as a Schedule 1 controlled substance, the same as heroin.

McCarran International Airport has installed 13 “marijuana amnesty drop boxes,” the Las Vegas Sun reports, so travelers can offload their stash before they go through security. Ten of the "Disposal for Prescription and Recreational Drugs” boxes are located outside the airport, and three are outside the McCarran Rent-a-Car. The green boxes are bolted to the ground and are designed in such a way that it’s impossible to put your hand in, meaning no one can collect some free ganja at the airport. It isn’t clear what happens to all the disposed drugs when the boxes are emptied. In Nevada, it’s legal to possess up to an ounce (28.34g) of marijuana and an eighth of an ounce of edible marijuana products
