Order cannabis seeds by mail interception notice

So instead of receiving the seeds i ordered i get this letter in the mail saying my cannabis seeds has be intercepted my U.S department of agriculture! Has anyone experienced this? And what sites good to avoid issues like this. Seeds were being shipped to a state that is now legal to grow and smoke

No shit dude, It’s still illegal federally. You’re lucky they don’t prosecute. They used to put people away for years for this stuff. If the port of entry was NY Im guessing you ordered from Amsterdam, which has also tightened their export laws.

If its legal to grow and smoke in your state then go to a shop in your state and get a clone or ask where to get one.

That or order from an in country source so it doesnt pass through customs

Seeds aren’t illegal to own. Try again dude. LEOs don’t have the right to decide if you are using those seeds to grow or not just because they found cannabis seeds. In the United States you can legally buy seeds for souvenirs. Doesn’t matter if they can be grown or not.

Disclaimer* I’ve only bought seeds online a few times, so I don’t have tons of experience with it.

Many of the places I’ve gone to online will resend your seeds if they get found. It’s basically just trial and error to try and get them through customs, and I’ve never personally heard of anyone being arrested for it.

That’s shitty. I wouldn’t grow from seed anyway. Find clones.

Seeds are what you get mother plants from are you crazy! Plus seeds have a big advantage clones never will. A genuine strong tap root

Thank you to everyone that took the time to comment. Cannabis just became legal this year in my state (MA) and shops haven’t opened yet. “Soon to come” reason I’m looking to buy seeds is because I’m looking to grow some new strain’s and clone from mother plants. I would use clones from other people but read alot of horror stories of other people clones contaminating your grow with bugs. Thanks again for everyone’s feedback.

What happens to intercepted seeds?

Im curious if anyone knows what happens when seeds are stopped in customs and flagged as contraband?
I live in the US and I know its punishable by law but do the cops actually come to your house with a warrant or do the seeds just get confiscated?
Im too paranoid at this point to use a credit card to buy seeds but paying cash is risky and takes quite a bit longer. not to mention that registered mail with insurance is 12.50.

to my knowelege no they will not come to your house, you will get a letter saying that the item you are trying to import has confiscated.

Has anyone had this happen? Confiscated and not contacted? Or on the flip has anyone had them confiscated and got a call from the feds?

Yes, this has happened to me before. The only thing that happens is the customs take the seeds and most likely incinerate them. After that they send a letter to you saying that your item seized by the US Customs service and that you will no longer be recieving that item. No sweat, just order from a different company and hope for the best.

as others have already mentioned, it seems to be just a green taped letter, with a message saying ‘bad boy, no seeds for you!’
there have been very rare follow ups, never been able to find a case where a warrant was issued for seeds
for the paranoid, the way to go is order seeds 1st, then do your grow
that ought to put your risk as close to zero as you can get, seeds as a charged offense does not seem likely

Just have it sent to your house addressed with a name that doesn’t live there. Can’t prove anything if it gets intercepted. Or a friend’s house with a wrong name if ur really paranoid.

You’ll be o.k. Since idenity theft have risen and continue to climb, using your credit or debit card will allow you to use such an excuse! in addition, you can always cancel the order thru the card. But like everyone else said, don’t panic.

Yeah its not a panic situation. I got my seeds. I paid cash for them and it took a little longer but it was before I had grow equipment or anything to incriminate me.
I was more or less curious how it was handled between customs and local law enforcement for next time when I use my debit card.
Im more concerned about my post lady seeing overseas packages and soil and such being delivered
Thanks for the helpful responses Hope everyone got the rep i sent

I sent out cash from the USA to Nirvana seeds. I sent it out regular mail and it cost me less than $3 . It only took two weeks and one day exactly for me to receive my package. If you dont want to use your credit card you can always use a prepaid one. Check first with the company your buying from, some will not take money orders, or they have to be international money orders. Good luck to you!

hey guys my package was recently intercepted and i just(today) got a letter stating that they want me to give them authorization to open my package, if they don’t get a response they will hand it back to Canada post for disposal.

What should i do?

Well Im certainly no expert but I would say that giving permission would be like incriminating yourself. I would rather them incinerate the seeds than get myself in trouble. You can always buy more seeds.
Maybe someone else that reads this will have some better advice for you.
Good Luck on your situation.

Ive always used my cc along with my real name and have yet to have any problems, the real key is just finding a seedbank that is completely trustworthy and you’re comfortable with. If you are unlucky and do recieve the customs letter then just cut your losses and try again when your able, but dont ever contact customs and incriminate yourself over some seeds, its just not worth it.
