Every Rose Has A Thorn
The Washington Post had an article about how fake roses that come in a 4 inch glass tube are being used for crack pipes in Southeast, as well as the backlash against convenience stores for selling them. I understand the desire to shut down crack smoking by taking away the utencil (the glass tube), but does anyone think this will seriously do anything? I remember in college that bongs were considered contraband (yes yes, I know that they COULD be used for tobacco) so I saw people using Coke cans and apples. So is this community going to go after Giant for selling and contributing to drug use. The article said they were also focusing on cigarette papers and blunts. Really? You guys just figured out that people weren't buying 30 cent blunts for their smooth vanilla tobacco flavor? This campaign by concerned residents is going to work about as well as our war on drugs is doing at stopping dirt poor farmers from growing super profitable cocaine.
