This is quite disturbing, though I guess not surprising, since there will always be greedy people out there.

There are quite a few airline employees who use their security clearance to smuggle drugs. It’s only natural that some people would be willing to do this to make extra money. This seems to be especially common with flight attendants and ground agents, as we’ve seen plenty of stories of drugs being transported both domestically and internationally (like this former JetBlue flight attendant, who made a run for it after being caught with 70 pounds of cocaine in her bag at LAX).

To be clear, this still only represents a tiny percentage of the overall airline workforces, so I’m not suggesting most flight attendants and ground agents are smugglers. Hopefully that’s obvious.
