I decided to check on the regulations instead of just giving
them a toothy smile and stonewalling my way thru as I usually do....I had
several orders to fill and didn't know if I could lie well enough...and thought
that the inspections might be tougher since 9/11.

I called customs in Abq and they were no help. Said that
one needed to check at the particular border crossing. That's
weird, thought I, don't we have laws?

When I got to the crossing I asked why I was unable to

Here's what they said. Do you have a prescription with you? No, but I
have the pill bottle from the pharmacy. That's OK, they said.
