Have you ever had an order for prescription meds seized by customs?

    I tend to disagree, but you should have considered what the evidence is. Remember that anyone can order medications online and ship/ forward it to your address. I'm speaking primarily of a controlled delivery of controlled substances here. Think about what a vicious person could do if that's all it took. Just start buying a bunch of meds online and have it sent to someone you got a problem with.... Trust me, they need more evidence than just that.

    Quick question. I received #1500 diazepam in the mail recently. If LE knew what is was, would they get involved?

    They could definitely charge you if they wanted to. But remember United States customs are not as strict as they used to be. often they allow online pharmacy orders to sail straight through, as their mainly looking for hard narcotics such as Heroin, Cocaine, powders these days... That means if you are unlucky to be among the 1% of medication shipments that do not make it through ,you'l most likely just receive a seizure letter anyway.

    Rule of thumb (in case of custom seizure):
    Less than 3000 pills ( valium, xanax ,clonazepam, hydrocodone etc ...) = Seizure letter
    3000-5000 pills = seizure letter (90%) , knock on door (10%)
    5000-10000 pills = seizure letter (50%) , knock on door (50%)

    the majority of the reports of 'serious consequences' that I have been able to dig up are old or about sellers or buyers of large amounts (10000+pills) , and I have spent numerous hours researching. No doubt you could get charged for 5-10000 pills that it can and has happened Im sure, but uncommon, so far. I do seem to recall some bust in Longbeach, by local or state law enforcement officers. Don't recall if it was international orders, but it was posted on another forum, some several months ago? Whats positive here are the words of the DEA chief recently, who said "Prescription Medication isn't our is Biggest Problem Now." So What will they target next ? the chinese triads? Who knows ? Do they make a pill for being Paranoid ?

    Customs seized an envelope of mine containing 5000 clonazepam from Mexico some time ago, Instead of indicating the number of pills, they simply called it a package of clonazepam and sent me a seizure letter and a note pointing out the terrible packaging.

    well, you just hear about people getting huge amounts of drugs overseas and selling them locally & that supply will only go up now that the virus is spreading as a fire . A couple of doctors have been allowed to sell these meds unofficially just nothing ever in the news about 'online ordering' or pharmacy busts, just the coronavirus and how to deal with that whole situation.. Also ,don't forget that there are lots of people with tremendous influence that utilize the online pharmacy forums, including onlinedrugbuyers, dbg, iopreviewer, op, horseRx pr and the rest of them)

    another thing to keep in mind- the hospitals will soon be filled up with people needing pain killers and people sitting home needing anxiety drugs, while the virus is flying through the hospitals aircondition systems. So my humble advice here, avoid hospitals alltogether and stock up while you still got the chance.

    I second that @david the damn virus will just make it more difficult to buy locally or get prescribed from medical practioners. Personally im going to stock up with anti- covid-19 drugs first then oxy and valiums. in that ordero_O

    I have not yet had anything seized during shipment, though I am fairly new to purchasing meds online. I haven't had to deal with it yet, but with how governments like to seize stuff, I'm sure it'll happen to me too. I'm just not sure on when to expect it.

    It probably won’t get seized.
