I heard somewhere that the Florida governor Rick Scott is signing something to make selling bongs or pipes illegal.

 

I think it said that the first offense for selling is a misdemeanor and second a time its a felony.

 

 

And sorry if i put this in the wrong category i didn't know where to put it.

Florida 'Bong Ban' Passes, Doesn't Really Ban Bongs All That Much

Posted: 04/26/2013 5:14 pm EDT 

 

 

Florida is on the verge of sort-of-banning some types of bongs -- er, "utensils of death," according to a lawmaker -- after a House-approved drug paraphernalia ban passed in the Senate on Friday

 

The bill originally listed drug paraphernalia as metal, wooden, acrylic, glass, stone, plastic, or ceramic smoking pipes, with or without screens, permanent screens, or punctured metal bowls; water pipes; carburetion tubes and devices; chamber pipes; carburetor pipes; electric pipes; air-driven pipes; chillums; bongs; and ice pipes or chillers. ("This is a comprehensive list of mellows that will be harshed," joked Stephen Colbert.)

 

But before passing, the bill was watered down to make it "unlawful for a person to knowingly and willfully sell or offer for sale at retail any drug paraphernalia... other than a pipe that is primarily made of briar, meerschaum, clay or corn cob."

Retailers, however, can still sell the devices for use with tobacco -- so if signed into law by Florida Governor Rick Scott as expected, the bill won't have much effect.

I find it hilarious how these can still be sold "for tobacco use only" which 99% of them already are. If you walk into any headshop, flea market, or anything around here there's bongs and pipes everywhere. Every one has a little tag or sticker that says "for tobacco use only". So, no, this isn't really going to do anything.

I really dont think its gonna do much either because down here if you go to the Boynton Beach mall theres a whole stand there that sells bongs and pipes for "tobbaco" use.

Exactly. I'm not even in a medical state, and we still get around it.

i want to move to colorado so bad. and for so many other reasons than legal weed. i hear they have these things called mountains and snow.

 

 

the shop i usually go to puts a small bag of tobacco in each bong. they also throw 420 parties so im sure no one suspects a thing.

Oh well we don't have many smoke shops where I'm from in Ohio, sure colombus does but up north not so much. So at least like three gas stations in the area sell hookahs,bowls, and bubblers
