    Default how is it LEGAL to sell....

    At the markets last thursday (or the thursday before) there was a stall there that were selling b.ongs (ya know, you use it to smoke p.ot) how are they allowed to sell those. it is an instrument used to use drugs. and in tobaccoist (sp?) they sell them too.... i just dont understand. just curious and confused, not trying to spark a debate, although it is boring on the hub atm so maybe i should (late at night, no one awake) lol. KIDDING please no fighting.!!! please explain how they get away with it. personally i dont smoke, nor do i do drugs (or alcohol) so have never really looked into why they get away with selling things like that.

    I know Lebanese people smoke flavored tobacco out of a bongish thing. so I guess all tobacco could be smoke using them?

    Yes also the water pourer thing

    I heard they are used for herbal tea that's why they can sell them. I don't know though, I could be wrong, I only heard it when I was young so info might not be reliable.

    I was asking this same question not long ago after seeing them in a tabaco shop window after walking past. Anyway, app it's legal to sell them & people can have them displayed in their houses etc. it's only illegal if u use them to smoke drugs in. Hope this helps...

    I have a beautiful shisha in my house. It never gets used but it's from Turkey and is an absolutely gorgeous blue glass with gold accents.
    So I guess I can understand why people would a bong to display it in there home. I just don't think it's likely that that's REALLY the reason that often lol.

    A 'bong' is not just for smoking pot. A lot of people smoke their tobacco through a bong or a pipe as it hits the system quicker and harder smoked that way. It's completely 100% legal. Would you expect kitchen knives to be illegal given all the stabbings lately, or gardening equipment like hydroponic lights to be illegal just because there are idiots out there who use a legal things for illegal purposes?
