Can syringes be sent as envelopes?
    #764757 - 07/21/02 03:52 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

Hey all,

Sorry if this isnt cultivation but i just need a quick yes or no. If you send 1 syringe(for a trade) in a bubble envelope can you send it as a normal envelope? My friend said that the extra weight of the syringe has to be sent as a package, this true?

Thanks,
Fd

ps- Mod can delete this once i get a yes/no...

Yes, but it will require extra postage and it's not a good idea because it could get spuged in the mail. Use a box.

I'm done with drugs and growing mushrooms forever, or at least until the current drug laws change, its not worth the risk to me. Thank you for your information that you have provided me shroomery, but I will not be using it. Thanks Moe for deleting my posts, Good bye all, and have great lives. -merk227

Actually boxes get thrown around MUCH more in the mail system then envelopes. Also customs(im in Canada, trader is in US) checks boxes, not envelops so that would save me some trouble.

If customs saw a syringe with no lable would they stop it?

No, Canada Customs can check *anything* over 30g in weight without your consent. Even an envelope that weighs more than 30g as it's then considered a parcel and not a letter.

FYI.

The silo wet in the envelope will give the postal service an Idea of what?s in the envelope. Curiosity killed the cat, and the postal service is very curious. Besides, the syringe will probably loose all of it?s spore solution during transit.

I would recommend using a box to be on the safe side

I have syringes sent trans-continental in a Jiffy Bag (padded envelope) all the time without problem. Sometimes one syringe, sometimes more.

P.S: took me a while to figure out what "silo wet" meant!!!

Mushroom madness whats "silo"?

My idea was, an envelop has no walls or corners. If the syringe was hit around in the box(which will happen) it would hit against the side of the box and loose spores. An envelope has no corners at all and envelopes tend to land flat when moved around, boxes can land any direction when moved.

Also boxed are thrown around way more than envelopes. I have recieved many syringes through envelopes and they were all 100% fine.

Listen guys, I've been using padded envelopes to send spore syringes around the world for 6 years. They work perfectly fine, very, very rarely is there a problem.

Don't let anybody tell you otherwise, I've proved it over the years!

Lettermail in Canada is not that which weighs less than 30 gs. My padded packets are sent as letter mail in Canada because they fit in a regular mailslot even though they might weigh over 100 gs. US is different, these packets get a 'small packet' label in that case.

Max...

The 30g mention is for CUSTOMS inspection for items coming into Canada. Anything that weighs less than 30g CANNOT be opened without the addressees consent by law. Anything over 30g can immediately be opened by Customs.

Someone who is not me used to have pills mailed to him in a regular envelope and Customs would send little notes to him asking if they could open the envelopes that they found

Sorry boxtop, but Max always sends me syringes in bubblewrap envelopes and I've yet to see ANY problems whatsoever. And I live in a building with those tiny mailboxes where the mailman deforms every piece of mail to get it in.

Maybe I've been lucky? I doubt it. I just think the chances are pretty slim of there being enough lateral force. Even with renegade mailpersons...

Inspected by Canada Customs or US Customs?

Did the entire thing weigh over 30g?
