~~~~Fine for smuggling gear????~~~~
Does anyone know the fine/penalty for smuggling gear in from mexico?? Is the fine/penalty less if they believe it is for personal use and not for selling to others?? ~thanks

Usually what happens is a $5000 fine but mitigated down to $500 if it looks like for personal use. You would probably get a "Failure to Declare". This is assuming you don't have 20 vials on you.

better leave it to someone else and pay the extra IMO.

you are right although most feel they will never get caught and might have saved thousands getting themselves over paying a source

Probably as in most Illegal practices it depends on who you get caught by. Also depends on how it is packaged and what amount you have. ALOT of packaged supply I would guess would be with an "intent to distribute" may carry a harsher penalty. I dont know though Im not a lawyer. Get caught with a small "box" with some weed, VS. several small packaged baggies...Im sure it wouldnt be far from the same principle..not sure...good question!

I got caught with 25 vials of assorted shit. It was a lot of stuff and they didn't even charge for it. However, they did charge me with importation and intent to distribute two other non-AS substances. They didn't even care about the AS.

I know a guy that got caught with $2500 worth (mexi prices). They impounded his car and kept him for about 7 hrs. He paid $500 to get the car back and they let him go...

as long as it is your first offense, you are in pretty good shape, just don't mix coke and AS
