Hey there.

I regularly take a powdered multi vit, fish oil capsules and ginkgo biloba. Now I'm heading to Florida a week on Sunday and was wondering the best way to transport these without getting busted for drugs :p

If it's best to leave them at home then that's fine, but would prefer the take them.

All advice welcome :)

Unless "Fish oil" is a new euphemism for heroin, I see nothing illegal about what you're taking.

Though to avoid any questions about strange pills, keep them in their original containers.

I was thinking of taking them in sandwich bags to save space.

Hi,

you could get your family doctor to do a write up. i did it when we went on a trip in the past, as i have to take tegretol and asacol (seizures and colitis >:S). i never got asked about them, but then both did have my name on them. still, any questions would've been sorted out by the note. mighty powerful things, those notes :P

No. no. no! That's just asking for trouble, and lots of it.

You are fiune to take things like that, but you REALLY should take them in their original packaging, or at the very least, in the same bag as the lables from the original pacakaging. If not, you could find your trip somewhat shortened, if it happens at all.

You might be fine and get away with pills in sandwich bags, but it's a BIG risk (I've been stopped in the past for a number of things, just because i didn't think properly about how i was packaging them. And most infamously, was arrested, strip searched and the whole works for carrying Licorice)

Wow that's really harsh. Guess I'll be taking the original pots then.

Thanks for the replies, very helpful. :)
