When you go through the Albany International Airport checkpoint you won't have to worry about having a small amount of marijuana on you. If you have a small amount of pot, TSA agents and police will no longer seize it, arrest you, or even issue a ticket not just at Albany International Airport but airports across New York state. Officials say it's not something security officers are looking for when they pat you down or search your bags.
If you have traveled the Northway at all in the past few months, you know that the construction is a nuisance. But you may have also noticed that they have made significant progress. Officials say they are ahead of schedule.
