My seeds were confiscated...
    #128813 - 10/04/08 04:45 PM (8 years, 2 months ago)

I had been waiting, and as of today it has almost been a month since I placed the order, but I finally got the package today.

The end of the envelope was sliced open and put back together with scotch tape. Inside were just many layers of folded, blank white paper. There had been a staple holding something to the most inner piece of paper because there was a staple tear mark, but no staple even. I am very sad, but I feel a little too paranoid to order again. Plus, that was more than $100.00 I could have flushed down the toilet or lit on fire.

:sad: :thumbdown: :sad:

www.sensibleseeds.com -- they know what they're doing, plus you can get strains from almost every breeder in the 'dam. You won't have any issues with shipping.

Meh. I'd still rather grow out a top notch strain over bag seed if I'm going to be taking the risk of growing at all.

Although I've smoked some good bud grown from bad seed, so it wouldn't suck or anything.

Go threw everything. Often people have thrown away seeds in Docs packaging. I can safely tell you that if the seeds were taken by customs there would be a note telling you.
If you found no seeds and no notice on the package as to who took them cause if was a government agency or involved with the mail service there would be a note. I'd look into who knew the seeds were coming cause it sounds like they were stolen.
They always leave a note so you don't go out killing somebody cause you think they took the seeds instead.

QFT. It wasn't the government - there would have been green tape and a form letter. Also, it certainly wasn't any fault of Dr. Chronic.

There was NOBODY other than me that knew I had ordered seeds. Also, the envelope had clearly been tampered with. The whole side had been cut open and then taped back together. I went through everything inside the envelope, and it was nothing but 5 sheets of blank white paper folded into quarters. The paper in the very middle had a tear from a staple being ripped out, but nothing else. There was no note or other writing indicating it had been seized by a government agency.

Someone, government official or not, removed what was inside.

Have you contacted Dr. Chronic yet to inform him of the situation? I'd definitely recommend doing so if you haven't already.

By the way, was going to post this in my last one but I was in a hurry to eat, but that really sucks it happened like that. It must have felt really shitty to finally get your shipment and have the seeds ripped right out. It definitely didn't occur in customs though, and I'm sure Dr. Chronic will help you get it replaced. :wink:

I got mine confiscated a while ago too from Doc, accept there was a letter from customs. I did get a whole bunch of white blank paper too and the green tape and told doc and he didn't even reply. That was around when he stated on his site that he doesn't ship to US even though he still does from what I hear. I'd personally go with a different bank if I was gonna order ever again. IDK what happens if you get seeds accepted twice though same thing, or a visit?

You have to realize though that seeds getting confiscated in U.S. customs are due to the simple fact that all mail is subjected to random searches, as there's simply no way they could screen for certain addresses from seed-banks, unless you are making that decision based on the fact that he didn't respond back. Hard to say what happened there, might have had something to do with the fact that he's only shipping to the U.S. with the attitude of "your on your own 'cause I can't take the loss due to your country's customs", but I usually hear about his good customer service.

Don't know about having them seized more than once, but I don't think anyone has ever been visited as a result of seed seizures... the sheer amount of all the different kinds of stuff they seize every day makes getting two envelopes for the same address pretty irrelevant, I'd have to think...

Back to Dr. Chronic though, his stealth, inside and out, is probably the best there is.

This thread was moved from Marijuana Cultivation.

Reason:
Moving this over to the Strains, Breeders, & Seed Banks forum since it is concerning shipment of seeds and seed banks.

yeah he's all I ever ordered from. If you look at other forums I won't mention, a lot of seizures have been happening only at certain hubs in the US recently that's why I think he stated no more US shipments because customs takes them people get angry or they never get them and do a charge back to their card this is just a guess.

I do know this from talking to Doc in person. He hates to ship to TX, IL, NY, and the Boston area. He seems to have the most packages taken from those areas esp Dallas.

Then in some states where you can go to the store and pick up smoke, a clone let alone seeds he says he rarely has a problem.

You know I don't hear very much about missing packages from Seed Boutique but I don't know much about them. Maybe somebody else can let us know about there success.

The Illinois thing makes sense, considering how many reports I've read about the Chicago hub being exceptionally good at confiscating seeds. Regarding Seed Boutique and Seedbay, I do see reports of seized seeds happening while reading through ICMag. Every time the topic comes up, everyone feels compelled to list how many times they've received seeds and whether or not they've lost packages, and my unscientific conclusion is 95% of people get their seeds all the time from them with no problems.

So, I feel compelled to ask the question that probably nobody has the answer to...

...If I were to order again, and it were "confiscated" (assuming that is what happened) again, is that going to increase my chance that I have some form of police knocking at my door?

Actually, I already answered that question above. :grin:

I would doubt it would cause a problem, but even if they did show up at your door, it is only a problem if you are growing at that address. Possessing seeds may be illegal, but they never came into your possession if they seize them. :wink:
