    Hey you guys:
    I just bought an authentic nice turkish hookah from this cultural festival here in Berlin, and Ive smoked it twice with honey melon flavored tobacco.

    I wanna bring it back to the US when I return in 6 weeks, but when I told my mom, she flipped out and said that Id get stopped at the airport and have a lot of trouble.

    The thing is, Im NOT using it for weed at ALL, not even once. But she thinks if theres any signs of it looking as though it was previously used, that theyd stop me and that Id haveta give it up in customs to let them inspect it, for testing of THC in it or something.

    My question is, do any of you have experience with this? My mom said that if I do continue using the hookah for tobacco, that I need to make sure that its SPOTLESS when I bring it on the plane.

    But I was thinking that they would probably just bring a drug dog to it to investigate if they had a problem with it, and that would quickly solve the problem: the dog would sniff it, smell nothing, and Id be fine to go.

    But my mom is all worried Ill get in trouble and be pulled aside at the airport so that the hookah can be torn apart and serached, etc. etc., and that theyll make it a hassle at the airport.

    I should note that Im not 18 yet, so would they also be mad for me owning a tobacco-smoking device when Im not 18?

    Thanks!

    Maybe you should consider mailing it home.

    I brought a hookah back in my checked bag from Germany to the US once with no problem. You shouldn't have a problem as long as you clean it realll well before packing it. Customs going into the US never even looked at anything. It went like "Where are you coming from?" "Europe" "Are you a student?" "Yep!" WELCOME TO AMERICA!

    I wouldn't worry about it, babycakes.

    I never have any problems transporting my hookah. When I go I jsut check it in my carrying case and they do nothing about it. Of course I've only brought it state to state and never through customs, so thats a whole different story.

    you will have no problem at all, even if they did suspect you were using it for pot, it would be quickly sorted out.
