Of Course Colorado Airport Now Has 'Pot Only' Trash Bins

Not that you would dare leave any of your supply unsmoked or uneaten, but just in case, Aspen-Pitkin County Airport has your back.

One Reddit user by the name of THE-SEER spotted one of the more rare trash bins one might encounter at any airport around the world.

Its station in life is to welcome all of your unused marijuana so that you can board an airplane that may be bound for other states that don’t take kindly to people toting pot around.

Not the bins are hard to miss, emblazoned with bright lettering and the iconic marijuana leaf you have undoubtedly spotted on posters hanging from college dorm rooms for eons.

But, in case you want to make sure you know which ones to use for your leftover edibles, here is the full image via Reddit.

One Reddit user asked if you can reach the bins via inbound flights. THE-SEER explains, “It's in the entry/exit, so as long as you are leaving the security area you can reach it.”

As many of you already know, marijuana has been legalized in Colorado. Back in July, TravelPulse’s Janeen Christoff reported that marijuana and various dispensaries led to a boon for tourism in the state.

Obviously, there are necessary items that need to pepper the state’s infrastructure that would aid travelers who might partake in the substance.

Essentially, you can’t traverse to other states which consider marijuana illegal, so there is a crucial need to dispatch with anything that might contain pot before you go through TSA screening.

A pot disposal unit, as silly as it might look, actually serves a crucial service.

Now we know what you enterprising folks are thinking, but we would imagine the bins are watched thoroughly and are, we presume, far more secure than your average recycling or trash bin.

We know your enjoyment of the state’s commodity may lead to some temporary forgetfulness, but please remember to throw away that brownie you may have been too full to have eaten.
