    Usually just GST when bringing in stuff from the states. If you get busted, they'll confiscate it and you will get nothing.

    SEND IT USPS! Your going to get raped up the ass by brokerage fees if you don't.
    You start with a bag full of luck and an empty bag of experience. The trick is to fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.

    Fedex won't rape you up the ass with duties. Just be glad you're not dealing with UPS.
