Last night I went to this big club in the city, the China Club, first time there. I've never seen such ridiculously strict security. First we walk through a metal detector, then for the ladies there's a woman who uses the metal detector wand and then she actually goes through every fuckin item in your bag. I figured they'd poke around in there just to see if I had a weapon but they were actually looking for drugs. I had this very small purse, in a little pocket I had my pipe (never leave home without it) and a small nickel bag (yup they're still out there, lol). So she finds my pipe and just says I got to get rid of it, she proceeds to finish checking my stuff, she made me open my contact lens case and she looked in my altoids box. So they took my pipe and put it off to the side, I asked if I could have it back later and she just shrugged and later I couldn't get over there to get it, so it's gone. I had packed it too before I left, it's a pipe with a little cover on it. I'm so pissed, it was a $15.00 pipe, no big deal, but it was new, 2 weeks old, I loved it! I think that's bullshit, it's my property, pipes are not illegal, marijuana is, and you know the funny thing is that she ddn't say anything about the nickel bag, go figure, I realized today that it was still in my bag, I'd rather her have taken that than my pipe. So tell me, do you think it's illegal to steal my pipe like that? Are they really allowed to do that and not at least give it back? I know there's no way to get it back though.
