    I have many times taken packages for friends and relatives. It is very difficult to refuse a reletive or a freind, because by refusing you are insinuating to them that you don't trust them, that you suspect them of being possible drug dealers - one the worst insult possible. It is also unfair of anyone to assume he is guilty before he even gets convicted. It is not impossible for him to be an innocent victim. At least let him have his day in court before you de facto convict him.
