getting mail through customs
    #3802876 - 02/19/05 11:48 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

1)I heard when Customs seizes a package from a international order they just send a slip saying that u will not be receiving ur package. Is this true? 2) I heard conflicting reports on if dogs can smell MJ seeds. Does anyone know if they can or can't? 3) How much mail does customs check do they check every single envelop or half or none and just the packages or half the packages. It sounds like that it would be a difficult job checking every single package.
Thank you

I have sent some mail through the USPS from Amsterdam (each package may or may not have contained a qp of weed). I sent 5 packages to 3 places and each package stunk to high heaven. 4 of the packages made it. The 5th was confiscated and I only got a letter.

I would love to have a DEA license, you could pretty much buy anything you want.  Sorry to hear about your friend though :frown:

Send it UPS.

I work at an international hub and we have a drug dog come in like, once a fucking year.

An international plane comes in, and before the pilots can get off or we can unload the shit, a customs officer comes in, walks once through the cargo hold, asks us for a package count, and leaves.

They dont check shit.

I've heard quite a few times people saying they got a package from UPS with a note saying their goods were damaged, and the "goods" were in fact gone. maybe if you work for UPS then you can clarify if that scenario is plausible. Also, beware of scams...I've also heard of people buying seeds and just getting sent forms from either the USDA, or the department of homeland security...some people will take your money and just mail you these fake forms and blame it on customs or homeland security.

as far as i know, seeds cannot be detected by a dog sniffing, but i could be wrong. hopefully someone in the know can clear that up.

wow now that's a whole nuther ballpark. For a while you could order that shit online and have it shipped to your door. I'm sure it'll be easy to mail order 2C-I (a grey-legal analogue of 2C-B) again when there's a dem in office.

Whatever, normally the mail is not checked. I ship stuff to international locations and vise versa all the time. The mail never gets checked from what I see. If it is small, like seeds or grams of rc in a business letter sent fast how the hell will they check it? They get so many business documents each day it would be impossible.

Take UPS for instance, they ship so much crap each day and all it is about is getting it there on time. The International Business Community is very affluent and they need their documents ASAP. Sometimes you need a signature ASAP, in writing to the main office. When deals like this go down each and every day in vast numbers, the economy depends on this infrastructure.

It is just like the airplanes, before we had almost 0 regulations. Now it's of the roof since of 9/11, but it just goes to prove my point. Unless a big deal is made of a security issue, it just costs to much to us, the consumer to implement costs.

Why are the damn Airplane 30 years old? Since they cost millions of dollars, it is more efficient to patch the old things up then to replace them. Just like today's systems for air travel, it is ridiculous and has almost 0 security even with the taking your shoes off, it would need a full restructuring to be effective.

To this point, the mail system has absolutely 0 effectiveness in tracking shipments. Remember the Anthrax scare, just goes to prove how ineffective the interstate mail system is. With international packaging, the US government is far more concerned with very large, drug cartel/drug rings shipments that are being tracked by the FBI etc. then a lone package to an individual.

I would love some statistical data on how many large shipments the US actually intercepts, since we have plenty of drugs available everywhere in major US cities and suburbs. I know we prioritize drugs higher the insider trading, which is only prosecuted a few individuals a year to the thousands, if not hundred of thousands of individuals who insider trade every day.

I mean, drug use is rather commonplace. Is it not about as commonplace as an individual lying on their tax return? Every waiter or waitress in the nation lies on their tax return, excluding tips from their earnings. Perhaps a few are honest, but it seems ridiculous that even a small majority of the US drug busts even scratch the surface of how many drugs actually enter the US without even a bat of the eye.
