First of all I'd like to thank everyone here for providing such a wealth of information regarding stealth and security. However, I seem to notice very frequently that misinformation is spread regarding the USPS and their handling of mail. Here are the first few tidbits of information you may be able to use to further protect yourself.
First and foremost in my opinion is to inform everyone about first-class mail and the family of products that fall under its term. First-class mail includes first-class letters and parcels, priority, and express mail. Do not consider foriegn air-mail to be "first-class" because once it leaves our shores it won't be treated as such. First-class mail is protected against unlawful search and seizure in the same way that your home is. Because of this, any law enforcement agency will need to procure a warrent to open this mail. Because of this information, I have driven across a few states with 50 romulan clones in a box with addresses and stamps on it. I knew if I got pulled over, while they may or may not find probable cause to search the car, they will need a warrent to open the box. This also means that if you are mailing anything that doesn't smell like pot (seeds, mushrooms, etc) you should mail it first-class mail and package it very well. I'll cover packaging a little later.
First-class mail goes on airplanes. Priority often goes by FedEx planes now that we have a cooperative contract with them. Otherwise, it goes on whatever private carrier we can find at the time. Because of this, there's never any telling which plane things will go on or when they'll leave. I don't send pot by plane because it's not predictable. I can send things to California via first-class mail because I know that from my area to LA all our mail gets transported via truck.
Secondly I'll cover standard mail. This covers "parcel post" mail, or ground mail, which includes Standards A and B mail, Media (book) Mail, and Bound Printed Matter. This is mail that won't be going on airplanes and won't get sniffed by any dogs for any reasons. This is your safer bet.
I recently recieved a nice quarter ounce from a friend in California via Media Mail. I had him wrap the baggy tight with reynold's wrap, then re-wrap it with some cayanne pepper in the wrapping so that in the off case a dog does sniff at it, it will most likely get this and ruin its sense of smell for a week or so, but it's not a foolproof method. Then, the baggy went into a video cassette clamshell, which was then taped closed, placed in a box with stuffing, and each seam of the box was covered with a sturdy tape. I personally like self-adhesive THICK brown strapping tape for its durability and ability to seal well. This was sent via Media Mail and took about 4 days to arrive. I've received an ounce at a time and I know I could recieve more, but I don't want to do it too frequently because it's just not the greatest idea.
When packaging anything, make sure you seal each seam. This not only prevents scent from escaping better than if you hadn't, but it also prevents tampering and prevents the parcel from being opened. If the person on the other end knows that you will cover each seam, when you recieve it make sure each seam is still sealed. Also, for further security, write something along where the tape and the box comes together. This will provide another indicator as to whether or not the parcel has been tampered with. If the letters don't match up perfectly, you know the tape has been taken off.
In all my many years of postal experience I've only TWICE seen law enforcement ask to watch mail coming to a certain recipient, and he was dealing in kiddie porn. I see plenty of contraband go through the mailstream, and I'm able to tell this because I've recieved so much of it in my years. Basically I believe it's safe to mail most contraband if you're smart about it. Postal workers do not recieve training on identifying contraband other than bombs. I've never seen a parcel break open with contraband in it. You can see where I'm going with this.
Hopefully this was mildly informative, and I will continue to post any information I believe is pertinent whenever I have the time to.
