Here comes the funny part: it's not an "illegal" shipment as water pipes (bongs) are legal for sale throughout most of the United States.

But they labeled them as "gravity pipes". They are not gravity pipes. They are water pipes / bongs. That gives customs the right to seize the shipment.

So some idiot that wanted to make a few extra bucks by naming a bong a gravity pipe is now out over $50,000.00.

Don't screw with U.S. Customs. Example: you are required to report any money you carry at or over the $10,000.00 mark. Anything you don't report can be seized. So if you have a "pack" of 10 large in your luggage and 5 bucks in your wallet, you're going to lose all of it if they stop you.
