    I have seen them with a tiny sign underneath saying "For ornamental use only" before.

    Yep. Right. Ahuh.

    It's not illegal you just need reasonable excuse- why is this knife in your car? I was going to use it to eat my orange/ for fishing/for our picnic etc

    A friend asked this same question on the weekend

    As far as I'm aware there are two ways around the law. One they are sold for "tobacco use only", you will often see a sign stating that. Or they are sold as a decorative item without the cone piece, though the cone piece is usually wrapped separately and given as a free extra.

    What you choose to do with it once you buy it is not the stores problem

    you can smoke tabacco through them or anything really - apple tea/tabacco and all that stuff.

    not sure how they get away with selling crack pipes though

    but im pretty sure its not illegal to sell something that can be used to consume illegals - its just actually using it to consume illegal good that is illegal???

    I'm not sure about the exact penalties, but it's still an illegal substance. From my understanding SA isn't as tough about it though as other states.

    Yeah. 10 year olds can buy wine glasses. People can buy rolling papers. You can even legally buy syringes. It's what you do with them that's the problem.

    Our local shopping centre has a shop that sells them, I have always thought it was a bit weird.

    It depends on the state.
    In SA, it was legal to sell bongs and all related parts/accessories up until a few years ago. A law was then brought in which made it illegal to sell 'drug paraphernalia'. For a while places got away with selling the pipes themselves (not including the metal cones) and calling them "water pourers"... but that doesn't seem to happen any more.
