Taking weed into a country..

Post by Lincoln » Sat Dec 02, 2017 8:10 pm

This is travel related....

How sophisticated is weed detection at airports these days?...not talking about smuggling kilos in the suitcase just perhaps a small bit of weed wrapped in clingfilm and taken in to the country up my jacksey....(5/6 joints worth)

Now i know a few of you are hovered over your keyboards,outraged at the idea...i invite you to kiss my ass.

I'm just not sure i want to go away without having the guarentee i can get high....its never been a problem before but i guess it pays to check the latest situation.

I'll travelling on Package Air from the UK and i'm guessing they are looking more for bombs than green up my butt.

Any insight?

I wouldn't do it.

I used to do it before they started using sniffer machines and dogs, but it isn't worth it. Just ask a cabbie where you can buy some after you land.

Lincs, You need to see a good psychiatrist to help you change your mind about taking any illegal drugs onto a plane or into a foreign country. If caught you could spend time in jail (and lose your job, your wife, your kids, and your reputation as a result, and it will cost you thousands of pounds sterling in lawyers and court costs, and maybe bribes as well).
Can't you just stay off dope while travelling?

And even aside from all that, have you tried hiding anything in and retrieving it from your, ahem, jacksey?

It's the retrieval that I would worry most about.

I accidentally smuggled a full hash pipe into China and Russia. I had stashed it into a seam in a backpack. I finally smoked it in Galway. Later, the tinker boyfriend of my brother’s flat mate stole it.
Such is life.

Well if you are stupid enuf to try it....not that sophisticated.
Airport Xrays have 2 bands....one for density and one for organics.
So your weed will show up due to the fact that it is organic so if you are smart say put it in teabags...the system cannot differentiate.
When it sees an organic it just goes to shape recognition software (so if you have an apple in your luggage the system will spot it and then recognize that apple shape).
Now if you have it on your person do not go thru the Xray machine with your arms extended over your head.
Some of those systems do have sniffers which may be set for pot, put your pot in your carry on (as per described above).

Hth.

That assuredly is one of the most pathetic things that I've ever read on here.

How on earth do you claim to have visited the 3,086 countries that your Super Adventure Club officially recognizes?

No one is outraged, Cheech. Personally, I'd find it hilarious if you ended up banged up in a South American prison because you're a fucking idiot, if it weren't for the fact that your actions would put your wife and kids in danger and it would certainly impact their future.

Homerj wrote:Well if you are stupid enuf to try it....not that sophisticated.


Of course he's more than stupid enough to try it. We're talking about Lincoln here, after all.

By the way, Cheech - you ought to consider that whichever third world prison you end up in, they're pretty unlikely to be willing to cater to your ridiculous vegan diet requirements.

Happy travels, mongster.

I bought weed twice in Singapore and I met the knucklehead who smuggled it from Malaysia. It was Malaysian ditch weed, but considering the penalty for smuggling it I didn’t complain. From order to delivery it took about three weeks. A gram cost $50 SGD, so about $40 usd.

Ha. Weed sounds like the dumbest drug ever to smuggle into a country. It can surely be obtained easily enough in country. I can't help think that a country where it isn't available easily will probably have reasonably strict laws against importing it. That is admittedly just a guess.

NZ sniffer dogs are awesome btw. I've watched them sniff out weed, nearly in their sleep.

The only thing that fools a dog is shoe polish-fresh Mexican shoe polish.

A friend of mine scored some great weed in Guanajuato one time and didn't want to throw it away after only smoking half so he just tucked it into his fresh polished cowboy boots and boarded a flight back to YVR.

Sure as shit upon landing here comes Rover down the line sniffing everyone-he said the dog went up one side of him and down that other then moved on.

Of course he wasn't sure if it was 'drug dog' or an 'agricultural dog' we have both and the latter aren't trained to detect dope.

In any case this is such a Lincoln thread that's why I have the shithead on Ignore there isn't a country on earth you can't score something to smoke in that's what cab drivers do try and make a little money on the side.

As to taking it up the ass that's Very Much Lincoln's thing.

It was probably an agricultural dog, Harry.

I got the drug dog treatment in Ohio a few years ago. The people who rented my car before me had transported marijuana in it. Anyhoo, I rented the car and got arrested and detained for hours as the cop searched my rental car and luggage forever. He never found anything, thank Jeebus, but it was pretty scary.

The agricultural dogs are pretty talented too. I ate an Australian apple once, an hour out of LAX, Sure as shit, the LAX airport beagle sniffed its palimpsest in my carryon/off. The handler asked if there had been fruit in it; I said yes, and he gave the beagle a well-earned dog biscuit.

Back in '84, just about after being graduated from undergraduate skool, but still at university listening to Men at Work, I would head down to NZ to work for a few months transiting via Sydney. I had it all planned; load some pot in film containers, not the canisters. I thought, hmmm, let me wax the cap to the body, throw some perfume/cologne around the same (this I actually did), simple, no way would I get any problems bringing this into NZ. This was back in the day when some great bud was coming out of Humboldt County to Chico, CA.

I thought better of it and passed, luckily. Got my luggage and nestled into a Y or hostel and went through my gear when in Auckland. I had all my slide film in checked luggage, and everyone of my film stock had been opened out of its box and container (not canister) opened. Not sure where this was done (either Australia or NZ). Not sure if caught back then I would have been able to enter Australia some 33 years later.

Other: smoked hash with a Swiss gal in Cuba where she stuck some hash in her toothpaste tube.

Other, other: had a Swiss Army Knife taken from my toiletry bag upon going through SFO security (a few years, if not ten or more) to New Orleans. Got to the latter, settled in my hotel, unzipped the side of the toiletry bag and am like :shock: yes Santa, there was a big fatty probably from a surface/ground trip of weeks or whatever before.

Had a Danish dealer while I was living in Taiwan.
Weed was actually decent, he had various sources but got it mostly from Vietnam and some from India.
Anywho one day I go down to my local watering hole only to find out Lars got busted at TPE and so did his hot Taiwanese g/f.
We had a fund raiser at the bar to help with his legal fees.

In Japan, you could just carry it in your carry on. They don’t have sniffer dogs at baggage claim in Narita, but they do at the Haneda international terminal.

Once they were testing out the weed sniffing dogs at Narita and hid a lid in someone’s luggage. Well, the dog couldn’t find it, and the next day the airport police appealed to the public to return the weed, but no one ever did.

Is there anything more dumb than carrying recreational drugs internationally?

Probably not.

I have done from Amsterdam to Hamburg and Amsterdam to Alps, via Paris.

On the German border I his it in another carriage.

Coming back from Paris, on the plarfom at Gare du nord, they were stopping people and opening their luggage.

Why not just use the brains that god gave you and fedex it ahead?

For max. paranoia relief, put it inside some teabags in a box of chinese medicine tea. If You can keep the cellophane intact, it's a rare postal service go-getter who'll be going the extra mile, rutting through boxes of obscure tea to possibly out a pothead.

I got caught with a pipe screen at Narita. I told them someone gave me the bag of toiletries it was in on the beach and then over-egged my concern about it.

I transferred through Narita on my way to Singapore and almost got caught with a well used bowl. I didn’t know it was in my bag, must of done a bad job cleaning it before packing. The X-ray dude was pointing at the screen going ‘what’s that?’ I figured he was talking about my wine key as I always get popped on that and reached to grab it from the bottom of the bag and right next to it, felt the bowl. Mild Panic but I'm cool, so, you know. I showed him the wine key, he took it and waived me through. In Singapore, the first thing I did after checking in to my hotel, took a very long and threw out the bowl in a garbage can

On the way back from Jamaica, my friend and I were the only ones searched on the entire plane returning back to the US. When they opened my shave kit I saw a half blown fattie that I didn't know about, my friend say it to but the agent didn't. Killed that fuckers 2 minutes into my front door

I'd either send it ahead or bake something with it, make homemade granola bars and cook the weed down into the butter

Actually, Royal Mail is better to mail pot to yourself somewhere. FedEx makes you put down a fictional address. Pay in cash for that extra-level of paranoia-relief.

When they were waving the baggie with the screen (thankfully, a clean one) in it in my face, I volunteered on the spot for a cavity search. I knew that the average middle class Japanese civil servant would sooner commit hari kari then probe around in an old white asshole. They didn't quire understand me at first, so I mimed it by scrunching forward and making poking motions with my finger.

And then they waved me on my way. With my screen.

On the cruise, I talked to people who had easily smuggled on edibles. The same people also had hacked a bar code on a soda cup from a previous cruise and brazenly demonstrated their ability to access free diet Coke at will. I really reveled in Stick It to The Man-ness of it all and super-miss that aspect of myself in my current formulation.

You need to do a Left Coast tour, Lincoln. From Anchorage to San Diego, pot is legal and honored. I'm in a small town in Oregon right now and the motel kiosk has a brochure on the 24 pot shops in town, to go along with the several dozen breweries.

To see how the civilized world rolls all you need to do is figure out how to drive on the right side of the road, and bring your wallet.

They can check your blood for THC in Dubai. If they find it, you'll be charged with possession, and likely go to JL.

You need to do a Left Coast tour, Lincoln. From Anchorage to San Diego, pot is legal and honored. I'm in a small town in Oregon right now and the motel kiosk has a brochure on the 24 pot shops in town, to go along with the several dozen breweries.

To see how the civilized world rolls all you need to do is figure out how to drive on the right side of the road, and bring your wallet.
Agreed that Lincs would be in POT WEED HEAVEN if he did a West Coast Tour of Washington, Oregon, and California, PLUS add Colorado for a very special "Rocky Mountain High".

If the small town is Bend, OR, then try Dr. Jolly's.
My opinion of Bend has improved dramatically since the last time I was there. I didn't even recognize the place it has changed so much. It's basically tripled in size, and they built a bypass freeway that has made the place habitable. It even has a Costco now. And the Econolodge is within walking distance of two taco shops. Plus no sales tax, just like Anchorage. It has really been a revelation this trip.

I have mixed feelings; I mean good enough that I go back with the numerous golf courses and decent people when I go to the large dog park when I have the same with me and not golfing with a mate. I remember old skool Bend without the bypass freeway. I wish they would have really made an around-the-city-bypass, but nope, it goes right through town (not right through downtown, downtown mind) kind of cutting it in half and is elevated. I've gotten use to the revamp along the river. At first it seemed a little sterile, but I think will continue to develop character as time goes by. I don't think I could do Oregon permanently; yeah, no sales tax (I think there is on pot though, like 25%), but I think the property taxes would kill ya. Last time I stayed at the Dunes Motel where I could walk into downtown, downtown and brewery pub for a bite and beer. Tried to get together with Trixie last time in town. I like the Wall Street Suites (old funky motel set up that went boutique where I don't feel it's worth the price/value ratio).
