Marijuana is not yet legal on the Federal level, so while state laws vary from state to state, that does not guarantee medical marijuana users are completely protected.
While several states have legalized medical marijuana, including California if you are traveling with it in your carry-on, you need to be sure it also legal at your destination.
Recreational marijuana is legal in nine states and medical marijuana is legal in 30 states.
