No Drugs For Christmas

Published January 10, 2013

The Directorate of Customs reports that they have intercepted numerous parcel packages sent to Iceland that contained an assortment of illegal drugs.
While most illegal synthetic drugs are smuggled into Iceland by ship or plane – and a great deal of the marijuana consumed is grown domestically – there are apparently still a number of people who attempt to bring drugs into Iceland the old fashioned way: by parcel package mail.
According to the Directorate of Customs, 15 packages containing illegal drugs were intercepted in November and December. Sent by regular mail, their true contents were discovered using a simple X-ray.
Customs officials say these contents included hash, amphetamines and marijuana seeds, in addition to various other drugs. They also report two additional packages containing steroids were intercepted.
It is also reported that 21 packages were intercepted in 2011, which could mean that either the number of packages sent has declined, or that senders are getting more clever about concealing the true contents. Included in the customs directorate link is a photo taken of two spools of thread, each stuffed with hashish, so the latter explanation is probably unlikely.
All of these intercepted packages have since been handed over to the police.
