If anything they'll look at the prescription and send you on your way. They don't have the time to go through an entire pill bottle looking for .3 of molly, or .3 of any drug for that matter.
Yeah thats what I was thinking, its just I have no idea what the security would be like for international flights and if they have more time and are more secure during late flights... but i think i remember looking and the flight was like almost completely booked, which makes sense because people would take the late flight to arrive in europe in THEIR morning.
The only concern is that when it goes through the scanner.. will it just see the pillls in the bottle, or will it see the beads as well.. if so then i would be a little paranoid about that.
But with you saying its fool proof i like the idea and think i should go for it, but i want just an experience flyer who has done this before with more or less a bunch of times with no problems. just some more feedback would be great.
Ill prob bring electronics and what not too on my carry on so i think they would be more concerned and looking at those, rather than my medication.
and my last question is... once i DO get through that scan and the walk through metal dectector, im in the clear completely right? there is no security or anything when i get there?
