how much will be the issue i believe. just hide it really well. if you are in the Kansas City, MIssouri area, hit me up and we'll have a session.

Every person 17+ is allowed to bring 250g to the EU without paying taxes and customs fees.
If you want to bring more, you have to check for your local prices. In Germany you have to pay 50€ for every 500g I guess. You have to pay taxes in the first European country you arrive from the U.S.
for example a flight from New York to Frankfurt to Amsterdam you have to pay the german taxes. if you fly from New York to Lisbon to Amsterdam it will be much cheaper, because of the lower tax rates in portugal.

In the Netherlands you can't bring more then 250 gram. If they find the rest they will take it no option to pay taxes. So hide it good

you're allowed to import 250 gr without paying anything, if you take more with you, you have to report it to the customs and you will have to pay like 120 % fee's...(import, taxes, customs..) at least that's how they do it in belgium

taxes on shisha suck.. id try hiding the stuff as well.. claim only 250g.. see what happens..

the risk of losing the shisha is up to you.. but personally.. I would try.

keep posted if you managed to bring much more than 250g to the Netherlands.

yea there's probably a limit to how much you can take, and you might have to pay tax on it. if you can hide it i guess, but you might get into deep trouble at customs if they think your trying to smuggle it. if you do hide it a bit and they find it be honest a tell them you didnt know and ask what you can do to take it with you. they might confiscate it or charge you taxes

Do yourself a favor and don't smoke out of it until you're home.
