Chicago airports add boxes for travelers to dump marijuana

Posted: Updated:

Cannabis amnesty boxes have been added to Chicago airports, which are used for travelers to dump marijuana in if they fly to a state that does not have it legalized.

The boxes are set up at O'Hare and Midway airports.

Chicago police will be checking the boxes and disposing of the drugs.

Illinois is one of 11 states that have legalized marijuana. Similar boxes are in place at airports in other states.
