Some people clearly think Transportation Security Administration officers are drunk on power, terrorizing old ladies and all that. A bill was even introduced this week that seeks to strip them of their police-like trappings. But it seems there’s an inner “cool dad” inside at least some TSA agents. This week, a rapper found a “Notice of Baggage Inspection” in his suitcase. But his large bag of weed was fully intact, and scrawled on the note were the words: “C’mon son.”
Freddie Gibbs, who recently formed the hip hop group P.O.C. (Pulled Over by the Cops) with a couple guys from The Cool Kids, tweeted the picture. “The TSA found my weed and let me keep it. They just left me a note. ‘C’mon Son’. Lol.”
There are some serious doubts about the story’s veracity. But this isn’t the first time a TSA officer supposedly has taken some liberties. In October, a traveler reportedly also found a personal note scrawled on her baggage inspection notice. It said: “Get your freak on girl.” Presumably, someone had found her vibrator.
Of course, smuggling marijuana across state lines is a federal crime. Taking a sex toy on vacation is not.
