So bongs were jsut banned in my state
    #604312 - 01/08/12 01:16 AM (4 years, 10 months ago)

I'm pretty livid, I've been dreading this day since I heard it was possible like 2 years ago. So now as of 1/1/12 bongs have become illegal to sell or display. Its not too bad for me, I have 3 and I plan on adding to that collection via ordering online, though I think I'll make a test order under $100 to see if it gets through before I spend some serious money.

But for people like my friend who called me today and just smashed his bong, this is the worst, I'm lending him one of mine until he makes an order, but I still can't believe how much of a step back my country has taken in relation to the US who is like our buttbuddy.

cant they still be sold under the name "water pipe"  .

I know if you use the word "bong" in some headshops they can refuse the sale

They're not so much banning the name as much as the device

hmmm...didn't seem to really address what a 'bong' is exactly.  Sooo many water pipes today blur the line between bong and w/e else they are called.  I take it you can still buy a regular glass pipe?

:sad:

I guess this means you should start blowing glass...since the underground market will be out of control now...


--------------------
Of course it's happening inside your head.
Why should that mean it isn't real?

Yeah, I was going to make a comment about befriending a glass blower or something. Just make sure they use borosilicate or pyrex glass. I'm sure they'd know to do that though if you asked them to make you a bong.

yea this already happened in South Australia and Queensland and now bowls are worth their weight in gold because you can't get them anywhere. I'm sure I'll still be able to order glass in, even if I have to make it go through another state first.

But yea I can only imagine this will lead to an influx of gatorade bottles and peoples garden hoses being found all over the place, and a huge amount of tinfoil conepieces

Are they illegal to posses, or just buy/sell?

Yeah its sucks.  You in Vic?  I recently sold my bong, thinking I was getting off weed, but then changed my mind days later.  So I'm using my housemate's for the time being.
