This is interesting. I know someone who got away with bringing a whole box of Cubans home one time, that was during the Bush presidency. During that time I would bring 5 cartons of Cigarettes home and no one ever charged me any extra tax.
Since the Obama administration took over though, they are getting much stricter then before and so now I wouldn't advise anyone trying to sneak anything into the U.S. A couple cruises ago, before I quit smoking cigarettes, I ended up having to pay tax on 3 of the 5 cartons of cigarettes I brought back with me and tax on a extra bottle of booze too.
Live life to the fullest because tomorrow may never come!
