Buying Gear In Mexico

Friend is going to mexico pretty soon and plans on going to the pharmacy. Whats the best way to bring gear back. Ship it back or bring through customs.
Thanks for your help

Shove it up your bum and pray you don’t get selected for a random cavity search.

Ask the pharmacist for a local doctor who will write you up a prescription for it.

They can do that and it’ll hold up in US Customs? That’s pretty cool.

even with a Rx I believe you can’t transport steroids across the US/Mexican border

Fuckers. “The man” is always trying to keep real men down.

Im not sure on the shipping back method. I just got back from mexico on vacation and I could have brought anything back no problem. I would say your best bet would be to carry it on your body instead of in luggage. I didn’t buy anything since I’m still researching.

It’s been done before.

Of course its possible. How do people think all the other illegal drug get here from mexico.

where do you live? If you live in southern California I’ve hard some people just take a drive and do there shot there and come home.

i made a trip w\ my bro and a friend down to laredo, tx a year and a half ago. we drove across and purchased aprox. $3000 in gear. we unscrewed a small panel on both of the rear doors and removed all unnessesary packaging from the gear and dropped all of it into the bottom of the rear door panels via the acces point from where we removed the panels. we had no problems coming back through the border or crossing the second border check-point in the u.s.

we were also pulled over by a gung ho lady cop in illinois on our way back home who was sure we were smuggling drugs and performed a thourough vehicle search… ovcoarse she found nothing.

i also know that walking back across the border is one of the safer methods, with the gear on your person.
and i have heard of guys paying one of the mexicans to smuggle it across for them and meeting them back in the u.s.

well hope this helps you out, just remember that there are no 100% full proof ways and theres allways a chance of getting caught.

         good luck to you

Yeah, US Customs recently began taking part in a program similar to the Friend to Friend Program. For those of you unaware of what that it is, basically it’s women who examine each other’s breasts in the effort of breast health.

It’s a little different with customs though. They claim they’re doing you a favor with the free “prostate check,” but they’re really just trying to bust you. Moral of the story: don’t believe customs when they claim they’re just looking out for your health…

hahaha

Wow, I actually made myself smile with that bit.
