Sitting in Ft Lauderdale now and was called to the back room for having over 50 cigars. Had 120 

Checked the bags, told me not to try to come back in again with over 50

They let me keep them this time

That’s not cool.  Sure don’t like to hear that.  Coming back through Ft Lauderdale in July and was hoping they weren’t cracking down.  So, over 50 and they are a little threatening?

Glad you made it through.

????????????????

Did you declare anything? Or did they see it on the X ray? These idiots need to get on the same damn page. How do they expect us to hit a moving target? I'm sorry to hear they hassled you, I went through FLL last week with about 200 and three bottle of rum Nobody said a word. Things certainly aren't trending up.

I've always declared what I have

That may change in the future due to this trip

The good news is that my wife and daughter were with me and they didn't bat an eye when they told them that they had 100 ea and 3 bottles of rum

Same agent 

None of you declared or you just gave the info when they asked?  Just curious.

We told them what we had when asked

In Ft Lauderdale there were no more paper forms, just questions on a machine

Did the passport kiosk in Miami when we came thru and it just asks if you have more than 800$ to declare.

It's up to you to decide what you want to tell them.  No humans ever asked me anything about anything to do with tobacco or alcohol at either customs ports going out and coming in.

The Cuban side was more concerned with what they saw in the ex-ray machine as what they perceived as a rolled up painting?  It was a bundle of farm rolls wrapped in clear plastic and they grabbed the bag and pulled it out and clearly said "Oh, it's just cigars and stuck it back in to send us on our way."  Maybe I was just lucky cause I'm not going every other month to flip?

I felt it was up to me to decide which box I checked at the kiosk.  :unknown:
