Ive ordered tobacco plenty of times and haven't been pinched once at customs. Although when I odered my KM hookah they charged me $31 in customs fees. if you order go with **********...most hookah vendors take forever to ship out tobacco/hookahs (2-3weeks). Johns stuff takes only a week.

Marking as a gift wont neccessarily change anything. Its all luck of the draw with customs, and if they open your package and it is underdeclared they will redeclare it appropriately, and tax you accordingly.

your best bet is to order in small amounts. The odds of you getting caught at customs are lower then. I usually get three 250g packs and it usually runs me $75 after shipping and stuff.

Yes, I have been caught on small orders and on big orders and on Non tobacco orders.

Remember, anything valued at 30$ + will automatically be taxed

You could potentially still be taxed because it exceeds the amount of tobacco you are allowed to import tax free

You have two options. You can accept the customs charges, and pay them, and then the package will be released to you OR

You can refuse the package, it will be sent back to the online vendor and you will be reimbursed the value of the package but you still wont be reimbursed for the shipping costs
