    I've always wanted to buy seeds online but im a bit nervous regarding the penalty for getting caught by Customs, what exactly happens if they do find seeds in your packaging. Has anyone been to jail, got a ticket or had to appear in court over buying seeds online ? The last thing my wife and daughter needs is daddy going to jail or going to court and me losing my job over something like this. any insight is much appreciated.

    Look here's the deal you are one small peaon in a great war. Yes there is a chance of getting caught bring seeds into the us, but it about the same chance as crossing the street and getting hit by a car. First off get a prepaid card, second order from a reputable comany....i.e. attitude, don't be a fool and opt out for the stealth shipping...pay for it....never ship seeds were you are growing big mistake. That's what Johnny Law wants plants, not some measly old seeds. If you get a letter from the post office saying you got a package to come and get...fuck it chuck it up as a loss and move on. Lastly if seeds do get caught in customs, the only repercussion you have to fear is a pretty pink slip letting you know that the importation of cannabis seeds in the us is illegal. No law enforcement is going to was dollars to bust some trying to import seeds, now investigations of possible grow site is real, hence why we don't send see to where we are growing. Follow these rules and you will have great harvests for many years. By the way been ordering from attitude seed bank for 3 years and have yet to have an order seized. A+++ service with freebies everytime you order from the, and me likes the freebies.

    PS. DON'T TELL ANYONE YOPU ARE GROWING MARIJUANA, WIFE INCLUDED. YOU FORGOT YOUR WEDDING ANIVERSERY AND NOW SHE IS PISSED AT YOU THINGS GET WORSE, NOW SHE WANTS TO LEAVE NEXT THING YOU KNOW THE LAW AND CYS IS AT YOUR DOOR. TRUST NO ONE, IF YOU CAN'T KEEP A SECRET HOW CAN YOU EXPECT ANYONE ELSE TO. THE PEOPLE YOU THINK ARE SAFE ARE THE PEOPLE YOU HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT. TRUST ME I HAVE BEEN THERE AS WELL AS MANY OTHER JUST TURN ON THE 5 O CLOCK NEWS.

    Buying seeds is sketchy but it's pretty safe for the most part. If your seeds do get snagged by customs you will get a letter telling you that they confiscated your order and no further action will be taken. Who knows if your name goes into a database or not. We have no idea what percentage of seed shipments gets intercepted but my guess is probably under 1%. The vast majority of them get through. I don't recommend ordering seeds under your name or having them sent to your grow location. If you have a trusted friend or relative that will accept an order for you that's the best route that way no heat comes onto you at all.:shock:

    I use Hempdepot.ca and you have to mail your order to them (they don't do credit cards or internet orders at all). They accept personal checks or international money orders. Go the money order route and get an international one from the post office. You have to pay cash and they don't ask you for any information at all. Their prices are a little high but they've got great seed companies and some hard to find breeders. Attitude and Nirvana are ones that people on here use all the time and both of those take credit cards. I've never used either of them but I know people who have and they have good things to say about both seedbanks. Best of luck and be safe.:weed:

    Yeah like the other replies if you play your cards right you have nothing to worry about. Dont use credit cards in your name, try to get a friend to let you have them arrive at there address or if you can get a po box in some body else name, and try to use some bodys vehicle that dosent grow to visit your supply stores if there anything like the ones in california, and LOOSE LIPS SINK SHIPS tell no one.

    thanks for the responses, its all very helpful info. ya im going to have it shipped to my moms house, and i will probably as you guys suggested get a prepaid credit card or a international money order. Both of you guys referred Altitude as a quality supplier so im assuming they are a trusted company and know what there doing. Thats also good news to hear that they dont take legal action, quite surprising actually but good news :)

    You have to get a prepaid card that can be used internationally. The ones at wal-mart won't work.;-)

    If you are that worried about the seed delivery, I can't imagine what a wreck you are going to be growing you girls. Are you up for this?

    ya im up for it, im a very cautious person, not to the point where im paranoid about everything i do, but to the point where im looking out for my self. Also, spending $270 for an O every 2 weeks is really hurting my wallet, so i thought this would be a great way to save money and its always rewarding to see a baby seed turn into high quality beautiful bud.

    ok here it is... fact #1, I ordered seeds the first time and they came with order confirmation, so they needed to be signed for. I wasn't home so i had a letter stating i needed to pick it up at the post office. so i went to the post office, signed for it and took my seeds home. there weren't any cops waiting to arrest me or anything like that. fact #2, my next 2 orders were made on the same day from the same seed bank and they both ended up confiscated by customs. i got a letter with each one in the mail stating they had been confiscated and that was that, no cops came to my house or anything. i contacted the seed bank and they reshipped my orders and i got both of them a week later. i now have 2 more orders on the way. From what i can see so far, keep your orders small anyway and you should be fine. i have paid with paypal and with prepaid credit cards. Use your real name on the shipping cuz if you have to sign for the package, you may need proof of id. bottom line is the feds aren't going to come to your door cuz you got busted ordering seeds.

    Totally safe. I've done it many times. Customs can't really charge you because its difficult to prove intent on a package that you never had in your possession, so Doc111 is correct, worse case is you get a letter and no seeds. Customs isn't going to flip through their roladex and call Dectective Harris in [Your Town] and be like, "hey ahhhh, we got a little dime bag of seeds here, you might want suit up and kick some doors down at this PO BOX."

    If customs find seeds coming to your property they will come by your place of work and moon you in front of your fellow employees and then give you the finger, then they will go to your moms house and punch her in the left boob and drive off. But thats only if they are federal customs for international transit.

    O every two weeks? Sounds like you are using it for med reasons... If medical cannabis is legal in your area and you are using it for medical purposes then get a license if you dont have one already.

    I have used a Wal-Mart card every time I e ordered from the tide ad I just recently had customs take some sinmints and some freebies from me.they took the seeds and sent the package with the tin tin and the tshirt inside it and there was green tape around the package saying it was inspected by customs.the little piece of paper that the ufos are on with the pic of the alien was inside the tin and it had nice t-shirt wrote on it.they took my seeds and were smartass in the process lol.I was pissed.I did get my order though I took pics of the package the way they sent it to me and emailed Laura at attitude and they sent a new order right out and got it no problems.
