I’m a mom of one and don’t use or associate with any drug stuff. I recently bought a backpack off a buy and sell and after I got it home I noticed it smelled like cigarettes. So I went through all the pockets and found a small bag of what appeared to look like a small amount of residue of hard drugs. I called the police and they came and picked it up from me to dispose of it. But I couldn’t confirm what it was. And then I washed the backpack on hot.
I’m wondering if I can still travel with this backpack. I bought it specifically for my trip to carry it on and really want to use it. Someone warned me not to take it in case there was still a scent or residue in the bag. They felt I could get in a lot of trouble. Common sense tells me that I couldn’t possibly be kept from my flight or get in trouble since there wouldn’t be anything they’d find. But I wanted to ask if anyone knows for sure about this.
Is it likely that a scanner or swab or whatever those silver wand things are would pick up any trace of that stuff? And if so what would happen?
I’ve washed the bag. Is there anything else I can do to ensure it’s totally cleaned up?
