Indianapolis -- Airport Police will destroy a stash of medical marijuana that a 36-year-old breast-cancer patient from California tried to bring aboard a flight Tuesday.
Transportation Security Administration screeners found the marijuana in luggage after it passed through an X-ray machine at Indianapolis International Airport at 3:30 p.m., according to a police report.
The marijuana and a black pipe were found inside a pink case, police said. Screeners had searched the bag because the X-ray alarm had sounded.
Starling Wickes, 36, Van Nuys, Calif., told police she had breast cancer and showed them a medical card that said she was prescribed marijuana.
