Would ban the sale of all pipes in Florida. This is ridiculous.
Only to go on and say...prohibiting the retail sale of certain smoking pipes and devices;
While it's rather clear what they're trying to ban here, by featuring wood and ceramic in the banned materials, they've banned tobacco pipes. Either Flordia pipe smokers need to get word to their State House, or they risk loosing the right to buy pipes in their home state. Unless they're happy only smoking corn cob pipes. Here is the copy of the current bill as it stands.It is unlawful for any person to offer for sale at retail any of the following items
(a) Metal, wooden, acrylic, glass, stone, plastic, or ceramic smoking pipes, with or without screens, permanent screens, or punctured metal bowls.
(b) Water pipes.
(c) Carburetion tubes and devices.
(d) Chamber pipes.
(e) Carburetor pipes.
(f) Electric pipes.
(g) Air-driven pipes.
(j) Ice pipes or chillers.
It's not the first time...That bill is unconstitutional
Wouldn't be the first time...If, for some ungodly reason it passes, WHICH IT SHOULDN'T
They don't work for us. Not you and me anyway! They work for the "this is how you should live your life" bigoted majority. The people of America are begging and pleading for a nanny state, perpetuated by the fear-propoganda campaigns of special interest groups.Crap like this will never stop until the politicians are finally made to realize that they work for us,
Well, the problem is, of those million pipes, 990,000 of them will be crack pipes and bongs... Hence the origins of this bill. But this bill is the wrong approach to the problem. It will not curb drug use or abuse, not one bit. This will do nothing but hurt people who are trying to make an honest living. There's aways going to be something to smoke drugs out of... What are they going to do next? Outlaw the sale of soda cans?If they pass it we need to have a million pipe march in Florida! Who's with me??!!
Agreed. That said, I will close with this:...even if it is political, it's extremely relevant to our beloved hobby, and needs discussion and exposure. Nevertheless, my apologies are sincere, and I'll completely understand if this texts gets deleted.
