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?

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.
How much can I get? Oh, about 6 months supply. Guess they figure if
you get more than that you might be reselling at the senior citizens center.

old drug and so cheap that it was never an issue.
