U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers in Cincinnati seized a shipment of approximately 15,750 Xanax pills June 30th. The shipment was from Britain and opened for further examination due to x-ray anomalies as a result of a foil lined box. Upon opening the box, they found 63 bottles marked “Xanax XR 2mg”, if authentic, the Xanax pills would have totaled over $230,000.
As you are aware, Xanax is used for the treatment of anxiety and classified as a Schedule IV controlled substance and cannot be shipped to the US without a prescription from a physician. The shipment was addressed to a residence in Texas.
Author’s notes – usually there’s something to do for a seizure from Customs; however in situations where a schedule 4 controlled substance is shipped to an individual in a box meant to hide the contents from x-ray scanners and mailed without a physician’s prescription – there’s probably not much I can do to assist.
The lesson here is to not even take the risk to try and import drugs, especially controlled substances to the US. CBP may refer your case to Homeland Security Investigations and will likely also issue you a civil penalty.
