i will say that sometimes a snafu cannot be predicted, I was just happy to see that it was rectified literally just a few minutes after it started.  we can't police everything, however I do agree that there should be a designate to check all bags, however, there was a designate and due to the nature of the product it could have been a call that could have gone either way if the designate is not well versed or experienced in the history and the realities of addicition and recovery.    Human error will awlays exist and I'm glad this was caught and no one suffered the consequences of a very overzealous customs agent.  Many of us never look in our bags until we get home.. Thanks for the post of apology.
