Commercial Shipment of Pot
This story was tipped to me from a couple sources in response to my previous post about how C-TPAT is being marketed wrong. I'll give the nod to the Blog Man O' Law for the link. The article shows that yes, indeed, smuggling happens in commercial shipments. Apparently, it also happens in the Free and Secure Trade (FAST) environment.
Keep in mind, my point was not that this does not happen. My earlier point was only that Customs and Border Protection's presentations rely too heavily on non-commercial, terror- and drug-related shipments to make the point in an audience of sophisticated business people.
