seeds seized by customs

Need advice. I suspect my seeds have been confiscated by customs

Hello AFN peeps-

So, here’s the deal: I ordered 3 seeds from Royal Queen Seeds early January, which was my second order, and received an email notice that they were sent out on January 13th. They are going to the southeast US and have yet to arrive. I worry because my first order (November), from the time I dropped my payment in the mail to the time I received my order was 2 weeks- 2 weeks! Super fast.

Now what you should know is I’m a total newbie to the grow and am greener than a plant with too much nitrogen. I did a lot of reading but apparently didn’t understand some of it. On my first order, I paid for regular shipping. not stealth. However, when I received my seeds it was indeed disguised by a DVD so it was sent stealth, but by their mistake. again, I didn’t pay extra. So, just thinking this was the norm, I didn’t pay for stealth on my second order. After week two, from the ship date, I started to wonder what happens if Johnny Law got a hold of them.

Well, after much reading, it would appear that I’m an idiot for not originally understanding what stealth shipping is. I thought it was just added protection for the seeds themselves to ensure that they’re not damaged through transit. I didn’t know it was to keep your ass out of trouble.

So, it’s going on greater than 3 weeks from the ship date and I am now awaiting my “Bad girl” letter from customs. I have only grown one little dwarf plant and am getting ready to harvest (yay!) in the next couple of days. The consensus on most threads I’ve read about similar situations is:

  • Don’t send seeds to the grow site
  • Consider ditching the grow once you receive the naughty letter

The jury seems to be out on whether or not customs informs your local law enforcement agency. Some say they don’t (how would they know?) and some say they might (hence ditching the grow if you end up on local radar).

THIS IS WHERE I NEED ADVICE: 80-90% of threads state to have seeds sent to an alternate address but how do you do that if you don’t have anyone to receive it for you? I don’t have one person I would feel comfortable asking if I could send seeds to their home.

Some who read this may think I’m being a bit paranoid and, they may be right, but I will always err on the side of safety. I’m going to harvest my beautiful little lady regardless but I am now hesitant to move forward with another grow right now. especially if I can’t find an alternate way to get seeds.

Any help with my dilemma would be most welcome.

They usually just confiscate and destroy the seeds and won’t do anything to the buyer. They don’t usually that much time to waste for a few seeds. They are more concerned with real drugs getting to the country. Aside from that, they are just seeds and not weed.

Some may send a letter or notice reminding the buyer that it is not permitted to import agricultural products. Nobody will get jailed except if you make it very obvious.
