    Default Possession of Ephedrine at a Border Crossing

    Hey guys,

    First off, I am from Canada.

    I was recently crossing the border of Maine and Quebec. I had ephedrine pills which I take, but were not in a marked bottle. To make the story short, the agents tested the pills and came back with an inconclusive result as to if and what the controlled substance could be in the pills. They kept me for hours before releasing me and sent my pills to a lab for further investigation. I had 79 pills with 8mg of ephedrine and another subtance of which I don't know. I have the ingredients list on my original bottle and everything that is listed in it is available in a similar product available in the US. I could face anywhere from $500 up to and including jail time according to one of the border agents. Can anybody give me any advice as to what I can do or what I might expect?

    Thanks

    Nothing as of yet, but possibly possession of whatever the unknown substance may be.
