I have had some shipments that hit the customs people in Canada and were somehow just "lost"... usually edible shipments. I'd imagine there's more of this going on than we realize.

This happened to me many moons ago, from across the borders. I was prescribed a weight loss medicine by my PCP (Orlistat), which was only available by prescription then. I found a reputable pharmacy overseas, where it was much, much cheaper than getting it from a U.S. pharmacy. I ordered it from them and it was somehow lost somewhere in between customs and the postal service.
