Be careful where you buy your bongs

example-of-bong

As a local Cali stoner I am always collecting new bongs to the point that I find myself installed new shelves in my living room, just so I can store them! I have different water pipes for different days and occasions, I have pipes just for guests (normally the cheaper ones!) and even some priceless pieces that are just too expensive to use! I had a long time friend who was also into collecting the same type of thing, but one day he decided to up and move to Alaska due to a good job offer.

After he moved state to Alaska and was shocked to find that the laws changed so much there. Just a short distance from his home town he found himself feeling very paranoid about his paraphernalia once he was notified of the local laws via Alaska.gov, which stated that these pipes were in fact illegal there. But how serious were the police when it came to this law? He decided to keep them all for now, but he nearly threw them away after a stoned paranoid episode!

For the buyer it can be very serious, or it could just be a slap on the wrist. It all depends on the cop and how much attention has been drawn. But the real risk goes to the seller. If the seller is located within the state where paraphernalia is restricted then it could end very badly. I suggest as a buyer you head over to an online shop based somewhere with slacker rules, such as Cali or even a country like the UK. I could talk about what shops you should visit but I will save that for my next post as there is a lot of details I want to cover. In short I suggest you buy bongs at Lemon Smoke as they are discreet and safe. I’ve never heard of any seized parcels etc so to keep it easy I would head over that way for your pipe needs. They also have a nice selection of other stoner goodies, so take a look around!

If you’ve ever had any mishaps with paraphernalia then drop me a message and I can update this page and maybe make a short list of specific states and laws.

I recently moved out of my city where I spent my whole life and relocated to the coastline! At first I was loving it, but then I noticed I was running low on my precious herbs! Back home I knew a whole heap of dealers who could get hold of absolute fire, but now in my new area I knew it would not be the same. Around the same time I ended up breaking my bong that I had been using for years, so know I was in a real mess as I can not roll J’s. I felt like I was having weed withdrawel symptons after 24 hours smoke free, I could even relate to some points on this article.

I ended up getting blazed with some local guys I met on the beach and they helped me locate some herb, but I knew I couldn’t rely on them to keep rolling my doobies. They told me that there was no local headshops in the area and the nearest one was a few hours away! I never really shopped online but I was not left with much choice

Finding bongs for sale was not so easy

After wading through a few shops I found some really interested bongs for sale on herbtools.com/bongs.html that had my pretty excited to receive my order! The piece I got delivered was far superior than my last bong, so after all that worry about having nothing to toke and no way to toke, things worked out better than ever.

I do have a few tips for those looking to buy bongs online;

  • No need to overspend, they all tend to do the same thing
  • Browse a few different shops before you make your order
  • Be aware of where the shop is located, customs is an awkward one

There is loads of info out there for help with your first purchase, take a look around google or read more on bongs here.
