While marijuana may be legal in the state of Colorado, it’s still illegal to take marijuana into an airport. So, to help those otherwise unfamiliar with the law from incurring fines of up to $2,500, pot amnesty boxes have been installed at the Colorado Springs Airport, reports the Associated Press.

The boxes, which were expected to be set up on Wednesday, allow passengers to remove the pot from their possession before going through security.

Marijuana that makes its way into an amnesty box can’t be recovered at a later time and will be destroyed by police officers.

Of course, passengers heading into airports have the option of leaving their marijuana at home or in the car.

Colorado legalized marijuana use on Jan. 1, but airports aren’t the only place putting bans on it. Landlords are also able to ban the use of marijuana, so long as the lease is worded properly.
