Yeah, I made that mistake once. I asked if I could see the bong and they told me not to call it that. They never denied me sale though.

Another place where I am good friends with the owner(smoked with the whole family) I asked to see a dugout and they said I need to call it a cigarette eliminator or something else just as stupid.

I see why they have to make these rules but sometimes your just in the spirit of things and it slips off the tongue.

Denying you purchase probably is some stupid Florida law. Or else the guy didn't like you.

Yeah anywhere I've EVER been, you can't say "bong" I thought that was a common thing. :shrug:
If you do, you're asked to leave...even up in Fort Collins.

Yea; I thought everyone knew that you couldn't call it a bong legally.

Its some stupid law probly and if the cops catch a owner selling one after it was called a bong he is in deep shit.

Is a 16 year old guy having sex w/a 16 year old girl a pedophile?
If not, then how is a 30 year old considered a pedophile for doing the same thing?
I think y'all need to look up the definition for pedophile.

Here the guy caughed and said "you mean a water pipe?" I said "I thought I said water pipe."

The guys pretty cool if you ignore the fact he called a hit on his family.

Ive bought so many pieces over the years and never dared to call them what they are. where i grew up any glass smoking instruments are illegal unless its a "hookah" so when you buy a bong if you are lucky enough to find one, it will have a hose coming out where the drop stem is and it will have the stem and bowl coming out of a big cork on the top where you would suck in from. If you try using it like this all you will get is water through the hose. It comes with all the pieces to making it a fully functioning bong but one time while i was in the head shop that had these someone called it a bong and they permanently banned him from the shop and the woman that works there is such a fucking bitch.

On second thoughts, that wouldn't have worked. I tend to get thrown out of a lot of busses and cinemas.

They can give you 10 years in jail for operating a head shop. In todays world we are lucky any head shops are around. Remember operation pipe dreams? If you call a water pipe a bong there is no doubt it is illegal. The guy just doesn't want to get in trouble. He probably wishes he could talk about ripping bongs all day and getting high. But in todays world you really don't want to risk things that involve imprisonment.

That is truely ridiculous. So is the law there you can sell bongs, buy bongs and own bongs. So long as you don't call them bongs? That's Political Correctness gone horribly wrong.
