Watching Border Patrol, a New Zealand customs programme.

A Californian arrives at the Auckland airport with 30grams of hashish, four bars of chocolate with hashish in and other forms of the drug.

He kept calling it his medication and saying that, ‘it’s legal in America’, etc...

As a customs agent points out, ‘that’s in America, this is New Zealand, we have our own laws’.

When asked why he thought it was okay to bring drugs to New Zealand, he replied,


“I’ve no idea, I thought it was like America”.

Tries to get out of it with a doctor’s note.

He was given a AUS$1,000 fine and sent back to the U.S.

I hope he considers himself very lucky, if he’d of been flying via Singapore or Abu Dhabi it most certainly would of been a lot more serious.
