While mailing weed is illegal in the US and in many other countries, mailing cannabis seeds is not. That may sound slightly counterintuitive but seeds are not actually a drug – they can just be grown into one. For example, it’s legal to buy cannabis seeds over the counter or have them posted to you in the UK but it is illegal to germinate those seeds and grow a cannabis plant.
The truth is that most of these individuals on the dark net use still the good, old-fashioned US Postal Service to get their product from A to B.
So, are you better off trying anther company and will you be less likely to get caught? The big ones that come to mind are FedEx, DHL and UPS. Actually, you may be more at risk.
What If I Get Caught Mailing Weed?
There is the story of a Texan who went to Colorado and bought about $50,000 of cannabis. Mailing the weed to his home address seemed a good idea but along the way someone at USPS decided his packages looked suspicious. When he went to his local postal depot to pick up the delivery, the cops were waiting for him. He now faces the possibility of between 8 and 24 years in prison.
Currently the US Postal Service needs a warrant to open your mail under the 4th Amendment. Private companies stipulate in their rules and regulations that they reserve the right to open any package they deem as suspicious, and that includes ones which may contain drugs.
One reason may be down to confusion. Many people think, just because cannabis is legal in their state, that it’s safe to start mailing weed anywhere in the country. They don’t realize it is a federal crime and that they could go to jail because they haven’t bothered to check the rules.
There is some evidence that the levels of cannabis seized have come down in recent years. That’s probably because more stores are opening in legal states which means people don’t have to post out anymore or at least they are posting less. It could also be because many companies know that it’s a federal crime to be mailing weed inside and outside the US. They certainly don’t want to get into trouble.
Marijuana is not available in the other State, other than planting them myself, and I need them to attend my medical condition, but of course I do not want to be arrested and lose my job either. I really appreciate all the suggestions and views on this matter. Much obliged!
For who buys online: they sell the seeds as objects for collection, which are not confiscable, plus the fact that Marijuana may be illegal in some states, but the seed is not, so as long as they don’t germinate, you are fine. Hell, some are even used IN bird feed.
NEW YORK JUDGE FINDS CANNABIS IS MEDICINE – FINALLY
Sending Marijuana seeds I had no problem with it, just put it in a plastic case and you’ll be fine or something similar. To be honest, they do not care for seeds.
I would take them with me on a plane. It is very doubtful that correctly bagged marijuana seeds would look strange on an x-ray scan.
“Hear ye, hear ye!” July 26th, 2016 is the 241st anniversary of the most venerable of U.S. institutions, the United States Postal Service. You’ll no doubt recognize agency members by those timeless navy blue shorts and the eagle logo on the side of their trucks. The USPS has been making deliveries for nearly two and a half centuries, yet there’s a lot about this organization that people don’t know. Namely, what is the risk of mailing or shipping cannabis through the U.S. Postal Service?
