    Medical Cannabis in Buenos Aires???

    Hey guys, I am a medical marijuana patient from Hawaii. From what Ive read, the decriminalization laws allow for you to carry one or two grams of cannabis legally, although I could have been misinformed. I assumed there would be a medical program also, but a fellow Argentinean informed me that...

    British Embassy skirmish today

    I was there. I was at the very front of the protest where the clash with the police took place. Several cameramen were filming the police, but the police would not respond to any of their questions. The protestors got angry at the lack of communication from the officers, and broke down the...

    Bringing my personal electronics to Argentina?

    Katharine...did customs ask you to turn on your computer to validate that it's used? I'm not very organized when it comes to saving receipts long term... My personal laptop is only a month old, and obviously still looks brand new...I'm hoping there is some sort of validation option of just...

    Bringing my personal electronics to Argentina?

    K thanks...I don't have any original packaging and all my devices have various personal files and photos on them so hopefully it will be fairly easy to tell the devices are mine even if they want me to turn them on.

    Bringing my personal electronics to Argentina?

    How do they determine whether an item is new or used? I try hard to use protective cases and covers to keep my electronics in excellent condition, and to be honest with you some of my items such as my xbox or iPad are basically in new/mint condition...no scratches or tear. I surely do not want...

    Bringing my personal electronics to Argentina?

    why would I only bring half of it back home...? I certainly don't plan on walking in public with these items, and most of them will be stored at my friends apartment. Are u referring to thieves, or? Sorry just a bit confused as to how this relates to getting through the airport with a couple...

    Bringing my personal electronics to Argentina?

    Sooo... "50% tax" versus "nothing to worry about"... The "nothing to worry about" replies seem a bit more realistic to me. Most of those replies were not only people that essentially have the same electronics as me, but most of them admitted to actually going through this process rather...

    Bringing my personal electronics to Argentina?

    mark, are you absolutely sure about that? I've heard differently, particularly about whether the items are in the original box or not. I don't even have the boxes to any of my stuff except for my iPad possibly, so packaging isn't a big issue for me. I do keep my items in excellent condition...

    Bringing my personal electronics to Argentina?

    Thanks guys. I'll be staying as a tourist, and I admit I'm a bit of an electronics/gadget freak, and I was hoping there wouldn't be some limitation or fine for bringing stuff if it is indeed personal. As far as determining whether my items are personal or not, how do they verify that sort of...

    Bringing my personal electronics to Argentina?

    Hey guys, hope you can help me out with a question concerning an upcoming trip I have planned to BA. I'll be staying for a couple of months, and so ideally I'd love to bring my iPad, work phone (iPhone), personal phone (android), and probably my Playstation 3 as well. Initially, i wasnt worried...
