Do UK Customs nick Syringes?
    #791720 - 08/02/02 12:56 AM (14 years, 6 months ago)

I know the actual spores are not illegal in the UK but would they nick syringes?.

i maxxed out my credit card buying stuff to grow shrooms with and i ordered 2 syringes from a reputable company (sponsers of this board), after a month of waiting they never arrived, so i e-mailed them and they sent the order again.....2months on and still nothing.

life certainly knows how to kick a student when he is down

cheers for any info

Phil

I ordered a syringe from the states (I live in New Zealand) a while back and instead of recieving the syringe, I received a visit from 2 burly NZ customs agents bearing my syringe and wanting answers. I figured since the spores are legal, then they should be okay to import... but no, they're a prohibited import, as are all spores, seeds etc. so I guess it was doomed from the start as the package had "mushroom spores" written on it. Anyway I don't know whether spores are a prohibited import in other countries, if they are then you're better off ordering prints (which don't need to be labelled) otherwise you risk a busting

I've never had a problem getting syringes into the UK...they occasionally open the packages for inspection but aren't bothered by the contents. Seems odd you had two lots go missing though..hmm.

I believe H.M. Customs are supposed to send you a letter or postcard if they confiscate an item that was mailed to you.

"I doubt many countries would allow bioligical supplies in without a permit for imports of this nature."

Well actually ever civilized country except like 3 do, why wouldnt they? How do you think we all get our spores, pray to jesus? New Zeland and Australia are known to stop syringes and check envelops but im sure there are a few more.....

Fd

might be worth having a look at the Free spore ring Europe if you're on a tight budget...dunno what they're like as I haven't used them yet, but for 1 Euro you've got little to lose

I would say make a little requisr to the dealer. Ask them to send the spores inside soemthing. It will cost ya a bit extra in shipping, but after that you can take to making yoru own syringes. Or order prints and make yoru own.

[BTW, you could ask them to stick the syringes inside a hollowed out movie case or something, and ship with some fony 'Time Life' sticker [a company that sells nature videos and crap] or soemthing on it. I dont think theyd object if you payed for it. And it would onyl cost a few extra bucks]

Just browsing and I thought I'd post here even though it has nothing to do with cultivation. If you need to know whether a certain country allows biological material to be shipped/mailed there, you can PM me and I can look it up for you. For those who don't know me, I work at the PO so I have access to International mailing guides and shit. I can look up any country that we mail to and look at what they will or won't accept. This will keep you people from having to ask certain embarrassing questions at the local post office. And as I have said before I am always happy to help screw the gubment. LOL Postalboy
