From the Canada Customs Act:

Section 99(1)(b) of the Customs Act states:

"An officer may . . . at any time up to release, examine any mail that has been imported and, subject to this section, open or cause to be opened any such mail that he suspects on reasonable grounds contains any goods referred to in the Customs Tariff, or any goods the importation of which is prohibited, controlled or regulated under any other Act of Parliament..."

This section also provides an "Exception for mail":

"99(2) An officer may not open or cause to be opened any imported mail that weighs thirty grams or less unless the person to whom it is addressed consents..."

BTW....Priority envelopes such as Xpresspost are technically a COURIER service and not letter mail.

(Sorry to beat this topic to death....but this might be useful info for some Shroomery residents).

If you put a stiff piece of cardboard in the envelope with the syringe, that should stop the pluger getting pushed.

I will have to argue with you on that statement. CUSTOMS WILL SEARCH ENVELOPES>

This is a envelope that FSRE sent me and it came through Customs coming into the U.S.

As you can see Customs did open it. They apparently saw that it was legal spores and they put the spores back in the envelope and sealed it up with that Green Flourescent Tape that says EXAMINED BY U.S. CUSTOMS>


The envelope was delivered with the regular mail.

Have to say that gave me a scare!!!!!!!!!!!!

So I have to say Customs will check anything!

huh?? I assume there was a print in the envelope. why would customs have reason to believe it was anything other than a letter? so they open the envelope and see a dodgy looking piece of dirty tinfoil.. how are they going to have any idea what it is? did they actually open the print?

Well even if customs does open the envelope they cant do anything. Should i put a lable on the syring so it sais what it is? They might think its liquid anthrax or something.....

My order from Sporeworks(4 PR syinges) was opened and checked my customs. The customs label read " Mushroom culture in sterile saline solution in blunt tipped pippette".

Are lables nessesairy on the syringe stating what is in it?

There were 3 prints in this envelope. THe prints were on a index card. Each print was in its own tiny little zip lock bag. The customs apparently opened the envelope, the opened the prints and resealed everything and sent it on to me.

I assume they took samples of the spores.

The whole situation sucks. Hell you dont know if they are watchin ya or not.

I will not order any more spores from out of the united states again.!!!!!!!!!!!!

In reply to:

I assume they took samples of the spores.





Why do you assume this?? There aren't any spore prints that are illegal, only places where some aren't legal, so if it was an oyster print or a psilocybe cubensis print, it makes no difference to them.
Even if they did take samples, the only way to know what sort of mushroom they're from, is for an expert mycologist to look at them under a microscope, or to grow them.

Good luck

M'fuckers!

Do you think they took samples? Or just checked it was a spore print?

Good luck
