comment Can we bring lavender wands back to the US?
@drat yes I'm agreeing with you, it's unclear as to what they mean - that's why mine was worded a bit like a question too :)

comment What to do if drugs / a bomb are planted in your travel bag?
@Michael depends in the country, but in say, Australia, NZ for example (the two I'll be in this week) you definitely have to, either a cursory customs check or a full x-ray scan of your bags or even a full search (I hate those ones). It's customs though, so it's less a security (eg check for bombs) and more a check of your posessions.

comment Are there any laws that prohibit trading on the airplane?
This would be part of the shadow economy. There is a great Freakonomics podcast from 3 years ago this week which covers this topic indepth.

comment Tour operators in Madagascar
Welcome! I recommend a read of the help center as generally asking for tour recommendations is off-topic here. You could check in the Travel Chat but yeah subjective questions tend to get closed.

comment What to do if drugs / a bomb are planted in your travel bag?
@Michael er, yes, which is what is described in the question. Arrive at destination, pick up bag.

comment How to change some details on the passport application AFTER it got submitted?
"could not get the right advice" - seems vague. Did they tell her what to do or not?

comment Can you bring a beach sand to the US as a souvenir?
I maintain it is the same as the other question - it doesn't matter whether it's in carry on or not really, it's about customs which both your checked and carry on luggage go through
