Well i have a little about 4'' long pipe made out of home depot tubing its a copper pipe i put toghter for $4.00. It was suppose to be a 1 hitter quitter just to smoke roaches out of. Been theres been many times i didnt have cash for papers or didnt feel like going to the store. MANY people have smoked out of this pipe including 1 homie that is longer with us. Question is i smoke everyday and my friends say its emberassing for me (us) to have a cheap pipe as much as we smoke. That i should invest in a quality pipe, but i say its the memories behind the pipe and the sentimental value is the reason why i keep using it. So the question should i retire it and move on and get a better glass pipe?
