I'm 17, and on sunday my parents are sending me to a two week christian camp in Colorado that I am most certainly dreading. Although I don't smoke often (1-2 a week) im planning on bringing a pack of rolling tobacco with me on the way. The cigarettes will be nice and peaceful, especially in such a crappy situation.

My question is: If i bring a lighter with me, will it get confiscated in the airport? I know i can get the tobacco through but I'd be screwed with my parents if i get caught with a lighter.

THANKS!

I went to school stoned twice. the first time was a lot of fun, but the second time we had a guest speaker from the women's resource center come in, and talk about rape. I couldn't contain my laughter. Never again.

Well since you're underage and I believe that's considered contraband my guess would be yes



contraband???
And no, in most areas you have to be 18 to buy a lighter. Also i'll be completely stuck on campus where there is little chance to find a lighter.

Cant you just buy a new lighter when you get there?

yea, pretty much this. im not sure if you have to be 18 to buy one, but you could always palm it at the register. its not that big of a thing.

they will confiscate a lighter at the security check.

I'm just going by what I've heard. I could be (and probably am) wrong.

Master the art of lighting cigarettes with the sun and a magnifying glass. That's how I started back when I was 9 with butts I'd find on my driveway.

wait, are you checking luggage? cause you could stuff your suitcase full of lighters and they would never care. it only gets confiscated if its in your carry on luggage.

I always bring a lighter with me when I travel, it doesn't go off when you walk through the metal detector. Make sure you have all other metal items off before you walk through though

I thought the same thing but apparently its illegal on CHECKED luggage and you can carry 1 with you on your person. No idea why.

Well just to be safe i suppose the best bet is a pocketful of matches

go ahead and put it in your checked luggage. they wont bother looking through your suitcase, and i dont think they even x ray. you can always put it inside something, like a metal container of some kind, which would block the x rays.

wait you have to be 18 to buy a lighter? that is bs. if you have any checked bags just leave it in one and it'll probably go through.
