Question About Customs


#1

All right, this has nothing to do with steroids, but has to do with arriving packages. I recently ordered a medication from overseas, and it's arrived in the US, and the tracking website says INBOUND INTO CUSTOMS since 9/12? How long do you think it will take to clear, and is this normal? Should I be worried? Thanks.

I've had people tell me if it's there for over a week you're fucked, but I'm sure that's not always the case.


#3

Not always the case at all! I've seen other people order EBay items that sit in customs for up to a month before they are released. Don't worry till you get a declaration notice.


#4

I wouldn't worry about something legal sitting in costums, that's completely different.


#5

True but I don't know if he's just asking this general question in a way that doesn't raise suspicion towards himself.


#6

Maybe, but I don't know of anyone who orders "medication" from overseas legally lol


#7

It is often significantly cheaper to buy certain prescription meds online for countries with health systems such as the US.

But i agree, the OP wouldn't be worried if he wasn't breaking the law - the ridiculous thread this is.

I do. I order medication that has nothing to do with gear, legally from Canada, UK, and India. Customs is all over the place. I think the country of origin matters too. While four days or whatever it's been is too long to be held in customs, don't worry yet.
