Last Saturday I went to the UPS store to send a fellow PSFer in Puerto Rico some American coffee. I also included a couple of Zip Lock bags of tobacco for him to try, about 2 oz in each bag. Last night I received a letter in the mail that the package was not sent as it contained tobacco products that were against Federal and UPS regulation to be placed in the postal system. I searched Google to find that pipe tobacco and cigars are exempt from this ban. I talked to the owner of the local UPS store and he confirmed that tobacco of all kinds, except cigars, were banned. Now I know that alot of you members send each other samples and I have received some in the past. Also, there is this big box pass thing going on. How do you guys handle this restriction on mailing tobacco? Is it simply "don't ask, don't tell"?
