You might have some issues. They could potentially charge you about 15$ extra for the shipping for “safety precautions.”

Is it neccessary to tell them the contents of the package when I ship it?

I don’t know.

I think they’ll ask what’s in the package when you ship it. They ask if there are any potentially hazardous materials or foodstuffs, I think.

they might refuse to ship it based on a states alcohol laws, we have restrictions in Oklahoma.

Mailing liquids is prohibited (down at the bottom) and they do ask you if your package contains x, y & z prohibited items. Of course, you could lie. I’ve known of instances where people have gotten away with it. I don’t know about private carriers (UPS, etc), but I recommend going that route instead.

you could always call the post office and ask anonymously and see what they say.

Found this out a few years ago when I wanted to send some wine to an out of town friend.
