Everyone wants me to send things home!!!!




Ok so we have all heard it. Friend says he will pay you anything to send him back Amsterdam weed. You tell him there is just as good weed here. Friend does not listen and persists to say that he HAS to have weed from A'dam!

So, I feel that it is of little risk to me, just him. Anyone have any experience? I just figured I'd buy some wooden shoes or some other stupid piece of crap souvenier and just pack and ship it? Is it that easy? Maybe he would look a little less suspicious if I sent it from a city other that Amsterdam.

I know this is stupid, but I can't talk sense into my friend, and he is a good friend. So what the fuck. Thanks for the help.

Just tell him you sent him 5g and when he doesn't recieve it "oh well, I told you it wouldn't work" (most likely it won't). Saves you time, money and arguing, lol.


Peace
The majority of stories I've seen on this site regarding people getting it home involve people doing it by accident.

If he was a true friend he wouldn't ask.

Would he?

:-)
sending weed is stupid. hash at least has a better chance of getting through as it doesn't smell as much and is much smaller.

But most likely it will get nabbed and someone will be out some money.
Tell your friend to start saving and plan his own trip, its so much better being there.
All very valid responses.
Just send him some dried basil and then when he receives it and tells you it's not weed, say you were too stoned to realise what you were packing.
Our (USA) wondeful government has a facility in Holland where they check all letters and packages that are sent so the chances are it will be nabbed. Nothin much happens tho, he would get a form letter that it was taken,etc.

If its small and it's leftovers no harm in trying but don't have high expectations.

Good luck

No shit. What if you send it for another city, or is Amsterdam like a postal hub? Just curious.

english postmen are a thieving shower of shit. just so you know.
It's the sorting office fuckers that rob the most.

It can bedon adn i know may peoplae who reguarly send themselves stuff back hoem whein amsterdam. You woud be best to sedit rom anothercountry alltogether, but nless youmakea ide tip just for your friend the the chanes are slim it will get hrough unless yu do a bng upjb f packngit. (ie sealed in vacuum tight bags, etc etc)
G ahead and send i t do no end more than couple gramsinany given packge and thensed lik 10 of them and maybe a few get through. I have friends who live there send me shit all the time, never once have i not gotten it, but then again they do not mail from a'dam and have very good packing methods. Good luck and you are right of course,the weed in amsterdam is no better then the weed in the US its just mch easier to get!

This exactly what I told my friend, just so he would leave me the hell alone. If you want to try Amsterdam weed so bad, then book A trip just like I did.
If there was ganja on the planet strong enough to make somebody believe that this is possible I'd sure like some :)
I'll just pack the box, open it and take the shit out, repack it, and say, "fuck man, it was in there when I sent it."

Jer
Or just remind him "I told you the weed at home was just as good!" :)


My suggestion: Find a scan of the standard "Customs letter", print that out, put it into a box, and send your friend a package of pre-confiscated hash.
actually you have better chances if you bring along a vaccum sealer with you. There is another method was discussed here in the past, check the archives.
Just send something without too much stealth and they'll get the customs letter and thank you for trying.
More trouble than it is worth.

Better idea,take pictures,Customs can,t make you .delete pics.I have many of RLD ladies and coffeeshops,never been turned down taking pics in coffeeshop,only about 3 RLD said no.I do backup by e mailing them just in case some asshole customs agent deletes my memory card but it never happened out of all my trips.From what i hear the only pics customs will take from you is if you are sick enough to have child porn otherwise they can,t touch them.
WHAT!?!?!?!? They can delete memory cards? How can that happen?
They scroll through your pics or just take them all?
my husband and I consciously put hash and weed in the coin pockets of our jeans the day we departed and packed them at the bottom of our luggage. It wasn't much. Maybe 3 grams or so. We were so nervous, but nothing happened. The scariest thing was 8 weeks later, when i opened one of the pockets of the backpack we brought with us and found a joint of NYCD in a joint tube. Total accident there.

What i heard and this is customs exact words:Film or memory cards of pictures taken abroad normally will not be inspected unless they suspect it contains child porn,no other reasons were mentioned
