Importing glass and Customs?
Posted 25 August 2010 - 01:02 PM
Do they care? My big concern is that I've seen multiple people say the glass VG looks like a crack pipe at first glance.

It all depends what state u live in i think, if bongs are legal in your state then there isnt any problems as its a legal item however a vape bong might get looked at more closely as it can be used to smoke meth/ice through but again depends on the state you live in, i don't have any vape accessories so i cant talk from experience. I got a nice bong sent to me from the USA to Victoria and tracked it with the number and saw it enter customs and leave customs in 12 min so they didn't even care what was in it nor open and check it.
however i just looked at http://www.vaporgenie.com/ and it looks just like a normal tobacco pipe well glass pipe anyway so id say you you should be all good.
Legalise it, Tax it and stop throwing my hard earned tax dollars at a war that has failed every day its fought for 85 years to date.......<p>

EDIT: One more thing, do Customs care about lighters? I've ordered some before from Deal Extreme and they arrived safely. But I'm not sure about from the US. I'm sure it's probably ok though?

Before this goes any further, In Victoria, Queensland and Western Australia it is LEGAL to own a full replica hand gun with a working action and correct weight. It is however illegal to be caught carrying it around you would more than likely get shot and it has happened before! or charged with possession of a concealed weapon, cops don't fuck around when it comes to guns, real or replica.
Just not sure what the cops will do if they bust you for dope and find a replica Colt .45 in your bedside draw

If it's clean and unused they legally can't presume it's for weed and take it. For all they know, you could just love smoking oregano or some shit

Customs said everything valued over $1000 inc shipping had to pay GST (no exceptions)
Playing cards worth $3000 arrived and went through NO GST or DUTY BUT BUT
Volcano Vapes were held up for 3 extra weeks in customs cos the package was valued over $1000 usd including shipping
I had to pay 11% GST plus Import Duty.
When the package arrived One Volcano was missing and 2 carry cases were smashed but all the boxes were undamaged.
Shit i lost some money on that import.
Next i have a Volcano single unit shipped from USA direct to my customer and it went through unopened.
So i am not sure they have a firm policy but dont like large quantaties which are obviously for resale.
