I'm traveling to Iraq (Baghdad and Erbil) with a 75-day supply of personal ADHD medication, with a written prescription from Canada. How likely am I to face legal ramifications or be detained if I put this in my luggage?

    It's not legal in Iraq. They treat it like methamphetamine and, if caught with it, you'd be lucky not to get a double-digit prison sentence. I suggest you instead hold onto that written prescription, visit a doctor in Iraq, and get them to prescribe and sell you Ritalin.

      I called the Embassy and they said it's fine if I "bring my prescription" and "don't bring too much" ... are they completely uninformed, you think? I feel like if I get searched at the airport and the border guards are testy, saying "But I called the Embassy!" isn't going to help me.

        Adderall is illegal in Iraq and you could lose months or years of your life in a squalid jail, but hey, some dude (who probably knows less about it than you) told you over the phone that it's okay.
        Seriously anon, what the fuck is the matter with you that you'd gamble like this. Sounds like nothing seriously bad has ever happened to you in your life before and you don't understand consequences. Trust me - pick someone lower on the scale to throw the dice on.

        Don't end up like Griner when she packed that oil cartridge thing in her bag to Russia. Play it safe, or better yet, don't go.

          The people, the food, and the history are all awesome. The heat sucks, but I'm going in February so it'll be fine. The security situation sucks but I'm used to conflict and post-conflict transitional societies so I'll be at ease.

          As a hobby and a professional side gig I do travel writing, journalism, and video interviews from marginal societies. I'm started to get paid serious money for my writing and my YouTube i shaping up to be successful too. People, myself included, are interested in these societies on the fringes.

          I did all the partying in Europe, I fucked enough women that the novelty wore off, and now I'm looking for other ways to build a meaningful life while travelling.

          Pic rel; took it this autumn during an evacuation mission in northern Donetsk. Ended up interviewing a ton of villagers from a heavily shelled and formerly occupied zone.

              Literally just put them in your carry-on. 99% chance they don't read the label.

              1% chance they ask you to remove your phone charger.

    Just don't bring it. Why do you need it for traveling? Most people use it for school and work, you shouldn't take it on weekends or vacations. I never got withdrawal effects on vacations. Only when I ran out and was doing something I used it to function better with. I also finally gave it up and I can't believe I was on that shit for so long and thought I needed it to function. Just stop using it, your heart will last longer and you'll sleep much much much better. And you won't sperg out at people for breaking your focus or have random weird headaches (you know the ones)

    With pills and meds, don't bother. Assume the people on the other end are the dumbest, most ill-informed idiots ever as a starting point. You can go 2 months without your meds. You will struggle but survive.

      Fair enough. I'll change plans and hit Morocco, Georgia, and Armenia first. Burn through my supply of meds, and then carry on to Iraq once I'm out.
