(INDIANAPOLIS) - Indianapolis airport police say they'll destroy medical marijuana seized from a breast cancer patient from California who was boarding a flight.

The Indianapolis Star reports that Transportation Security Administration screeners found the marijuana and a pipe in luggage Tuesday after it passed through an X-ray machine at Indianapolis International Airport.

A police report says the 36-year-old woman from Van Nuys, Calif., told police she has breast cancer and showed them a medical card confirming that she was prescribed the marijuana.
Authorities told her that while it was legal to possess and smoke medical marijuana in California it's illegal to do so in Indiana. The woman was not charged and police said they intend to destroy the marijuana.
