This is why they ask you to open your bag to display its contents if they suspect something is out of the ordinary. The guy in the video shows more, so I'm sure it's true.
Dear Stoner: Will an airport body scan identify edibles and a small slice of wax? Although not technically X -rays, the millimeter-wave scanners at most airports use radio waves to see if any objects are stowed away under your clothes or in your body before you pass through security.
Images from these body scans aren’t as defined as X -rays, but they don’t have that much to sift through besides clothes, unlike a bag filled with your crap. And trust me: TSA agents are much more keen to check out anything extra they find on your person than they are a few innocent-looking gummies in a bag or wax in your toiletries.

Barry uses the commission to aid people needing assistance” I will teach you how to trick TSA and other airport police, so you can safely carry your stash while flying high.
The second best way to sneak weed through an airport is to hide your stash is the crotch area of a male. Airport security is primarily interested in detecting weapons and bombs.
I have not heard of any person being strip searched unless they have already been arrested for another crime. Small amounts of pot will only be discovered during a weapons or bomb search.
Hide your stash in an area that is too small to store a secret weapon. Pot brownies and other marijuana edibles are an excellent choice.
Make sure to mix them with random unlaced food or natural alternatives. It is never safe to smuggle large amounts of weed through a public airport.
Please feel free to comment more tips for how to sneak weed through an airport below. Lots of head shops these days sell storage that looks like other things.
I'm flying to Greece soon and the place I'll visit is quite isolated, so I doubt I'll find any weed there. I've thought of rolling 3-4 joints and placing them in a pack of CIGS.
I'm talking about less that 1g of weed, rolled into 3 joints, mixed with tobacco. Colorimetric detection of explosives involves applying a chemical reagent to an unknown material or sample and observing a color reaction.
Other groups include chlorate and peroxides which are not nitro based explosives. Traditional colorimetric tests have a disadvantage: some explosive compounds (such as acetone peroxide) do not contain nitrogen and are therefore harder to detect.
The explosive detection canine was originated at the Metropolitan Police Department in Washington, D.C. in 1970, by then trainer Charles R. Kirchner. The explosive detection canine was first used in Algeria in 1959 under the command of General Constantine.
Biotechnology firm Incentive claims that bees are more effective than sniffer dogs. Several types of machines have been developed to detect trace signatures for various explosive materials.
The most common technology for this application, as seen in US airports, is ion mobility spectrometry (IMS). This method is similar to mass spectrometry (MS), where molecules are ionized and then moved in an electric field in a vacuum, except that IMS operates at atmospheric pressure.
This not only improves the performance of the detector but also adds another dimension of data, as the time it takes for a molecule to pass through the GC may be used as an indicator of its identity. Unfortunately, GC normally requires a bottled gas, which creates a consumable and ease of use issue for the system.
GC columns operated in the field are prone to degradation from atmospheric gases and oxidation, as well as bleeding of the stationary phase. One technique compares reflected ultraviolet, infrared and visible light measurements on multiple areas of the suspect material.
Specially designed machines bombard the suspect explosives with neutrons, and read the gamma radiation decay signatures to determine the chemical composition of sample. The earliest developed forms of Neutron Activation Analysis use low energy neutrons to determine the ratios of nitrogen, chlorine, and hydrogen in the chemical species in question, and are an effective means of identifying most conventional explosives.
Unfortunately, the much smaller Thermal Neutron Cross-Sections of carbon and oxygen limit the ability of this technique to identify their abundances in the unknown species, and it is this reason in part that worldwide terror organizations have favored nitrogen absent explosives such as TAP in the construction of Beds. Modifications to the experimental protocol can allow for easier identification of carbon and oxygen based species, (e.g. the use of inelastic scattering from fast neutrons to produce detectable gamma rays, as opposed to simple absorption occurring with the thermal neutrons), but these modifications require equipment that is prohibitively more complex and expensive, preventing their widespread implementation.
Silicon nanowire configured as field effect transistors have been demonstrated to detect explosives including TNT, PEN and REX in sensitives superior to those of canines. The detection in this method is performed by passing a liquid or vapor containing the target explosive over the surface of a chip containing tens to hundreds of silicon nanowire sensing elements.
The Montreal Convention 1991 is an international agreement requiring manufacturers of explosives to do this. In the UK the relevant legislation is the Marking of Plastic Explosives for Detection Regulations 1996.
The US Department of Justice warned in a National Institute of Justice publication, “Guide for the Selection of Commercial Explosives Detection Systems for Law Enforcement Applications (NIL Guide 100-99),” about the ongoing trend of “Bogus” explosives detection equipment being sold to unsuspecting consumers. The report mentions by name the Squadron Tracker, an apparent dowsing rod with a freely pivoting radio antenna rod with no functioning internal components.
On August 8–9, 2005 the Naval Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technical Division via the United States Counterterrorism Technology Task Force conducted testing on the SNIFFER and concluded that “the SNIFFER handheld detector does not work” … There is a rather large community of people around the world that believes in dowsing : the ancient practice of using forked sticks, swinging rods, and pendulums to look for underground water and other materials.
These people believe that many types of materials can be located using a variety of dowsing methods. Modern dowsers have been developing various new methods to add discrimination to their devices.
A number of fake dowsing rod-style detection devices have been widely used in Iraq and Thailand, notably the ARE 651 and GT200, where they have been reported to have failed to detect bombs that have killed hundreds of people and injured thousands more. Additional names of fake dowsing rod style detectors include ADE101, ADE650, Alpha 6, XK9, SNIFFER, HEDD1, AL-6D, H3TEC, PK9.
