It's just come to my attention that Daniel Schneider has this on his web site: "FDA setup new rules at July 1st, 2010. According to this it is totally forbidden to send tobacco and tobacco products to USA, even between individuals as private mail. For this reason we don't send any tobacco to USA, we are really sorry and apologize." I've made some enquires and I believe he's misinterpreted the PACT Act 2010, and that the restrictions do not apply to pipe tobacco. Can anyone in the US report recently receiving (or indeed, having seized by US Customs!) any packages marked "Pipe Tobacco"? It's been over a year since I sent any, which pre-dates the PACT Act, but I never had a problem sending tobacco so declared at that time.
