    Hello All,

    I am living in China and need to go back Europe for holidays.

    My friend mentioned to me i can easily travel back and forth with some gear (test / hch / provi / Arimidex )

    What is your opinion about this ?

    thx

    ^^^ Yeah, if you're really worried, just ship it. Different countries in Europe have different customs/steroid laws . What country/countries are you going to?

    I traveled to China over 40 times and have never been stopped. I've been stopped in the US several times. Never been stopped in EU either. But why take the chance? You would have a terrible day if you get caught.

    Edited. As don't wanna post another forum address

    A French law took effect this month that makes anyone who produces, transports, acquires or possesses doping products liable for up to five years in prison and a $119,000 fine.

    This marks the first time athletes who take drugs can be liable in the justice system. Previously, possession of a doping product was not illegal.

    Some critics said the law was too tough, and athletes should be punished with sports sanctions, not legal sanctions.

    I'm sure you know this, but China opens EVERY pack that comes into the country. And though powders are legal there, finished products are illegal.

    Oh, and France's customs are pretty tough (shipping, not airport).

    Is that true? I know china has a billion people and all, and cheap labor is in abundance, but do you think they really open every one? I'm wondering bc I've heard the same thing about Thailand. At least with packages leaving Thailand.

    Sorry to get off topic.

    I lived in China a few years ago. I was told by everyone there that ALL incoming mail gets opened and inspected. I had my mom mail me a camera while I was there, and it took an entire month to arrive, since the pack had been cut open and inspected. So all signs point to yes, which makes sense from a sensorship and economical point of view (since they do have a LOT of people to keep employed).

    What in gods name could anyone send china that they vantbget cheaper. I mean. The only thing china actually struggles with is basic raw materials to build everything. Even the UK employs a company to remove old railway tracks. Cut them into <=20ft lengths and ship them over. High grade steels in short supply over there. I mean. These companies pay to have the rails removed. And then the ppl that remove them sell em for a mint.

    Anyone got a blowtorch?. I'll carry the rails. U cut em. Lolz.

    I never understand ppl who would take the risk of taking gear into another country some of the jails are not pretty for the sake of a couple of boxes of daft pills and a few bottles of test mad

    Hello all thanks for your numerous reply....

    the solution i see is pretty easy : to buy in double my gear.

    well XXXX usd more on that but anyway, better than a fine or jail time !

    Thanks for all.
