It’s Safer To Mail Your Pot Instead Of Rolling Dirty
By Barry Cooper
One of the most unsafe things a person can do is to travel with pot because of the ever increasing and ridiculous numbers of highway interdiction teams in the U.S. It’s more likely you will be busted by a highway interdiction officer than getting busted purchasing small amounts for personal use.
Purchasing marijuana after you arrive is safer especially when purchasing small amounts. Citizens often get busted selling large quantities of marijuana during ”reversal” stings where police pose as drug dealers to lure in large sums of cash but this does not hold true to purchasers of small amounts of marijuana. Purchasing small amounts of pot requires very little money so law enforcement is not interested in reverse stinging for small sums of cash.
Posing as a dealer, police sometimes sell a small amount of contraband to unsuspecting citizens so they can later make a traffic stop on the purchaser and seize the small amount and make an arrest. These stings are called, “road-kills.” To avoid a road-kill, never purchase more than you and the occupants can eat.
If visiting a friend, it’s safer to mail small amounts of marijuana to your destination prior to leaving. Use the United States Postal service and not UPS or FedX. The latter two are private companies and are allowed to open any suspicious packages without a warrant. U.S.P.S. packages can only be opened with a federal search warrant. Small amounts of pot are not alarming to postal investigators because the grueling process of obtaining a federal search warrant deters them from fooling with small packages.
