  1. There is nothing prohibiting you from traveling within the United States (and if the possession of marijuana case was in Texas, it was not a class c - it was more likely a class b.)


  2. There is nothing that precludes you from traveling domestically within the U.S. under such circumstance. Make sure you've got a valid picture ID, though.


  3. There "shouldn't" be a problem ... but you never know for sure.
