I've reviewed your post. Please be patient as I may need to research for you, and it also takes time to compose and type a reply.

You may have a medical marijuana card but that doesn't mean much to the Federal government, and you are looking to leave the country. Under Federal law, marijuana is a Schedule I controlled substance. If the marijuana is discovered by TSA, they will confiscate it and turn the matter over to state authorities, who may or may not choose to prosecute you.

Marijuana is legal where you're going. You'll be able to get it over there. So you won't have to be without it all that long. Just don't plan on bringing any back, as on the way in, you'll be screened by Customs and Immigration officers, and can be charged with a Federal felony.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
