    media release customs seizures

    I saw this and thought it was interesting.

    "media release
    Agencies come together to combat online supply of counterfeit and illegal medicines - 8 November 2011

    The Australian Customs and Border Protection Service and the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) have taken part in an international ‘Week of Action’ targeting the online sale of counterfeit and illegal medicines.

    The operation resulted in:

    • the physical examination of approximately 71 international parcels, resulting in 20 seizures and 36 detentions for TGA determinations.
    • more than 70,000 pills, tubes, vials and sachets being held or seized.
    The majority of substances detected at the Australian border were slimming and diet supplements and erectile dysfunction medication, with some antibiotics, steroids, as well as a range of illegal substances commonly marketed as ‘legal highs’."

    I too am missing the point. The stuff seized is illegal. Our juice with nic or otherwise is totally legal.

    Sorry all- I was mainly interested in the fact that nicotine was not mentioned in the seizures. Well i was reassured anyway.

    In the case that nic was being seized you wouldn't need a customs media release in this forum.
