New FL law seeks to shutdown head shops selling bongs and pipes

Looks like those preachy moralistic Reichwingers are at it again.

Oh, did I say preachy moralistic Reichwingers? My bad. I meant to say DEMOCRATS.

The new rules, contained in House Bill 187, were sponsored by state Rep. Darryl Rouson, D-St. Petersburg. Initially, he said, he wanted to tax pipes, but when that didn't get support in the House he proposed limiting sales.

Rouson argued that pipes and other devices sold in "head shops" are used to smoke harder drugs, as well as marijuana. [doh]

The bill passed unanimously.

"I was concerned about the crack pipes that are sold in these stores," said state Rep. Joseph Abruzzo, D-Wellington, a co-sponsor of the bill. "I was going to be supportive of getting those out of the hands out the youth."

Rouson, a recovering drug addict...

Well, I sincerely hope Rouson stays off the drugs, recovering from being an imbecile is much harder though.

Dude -- any stoner can make a bong out of a couple of soda cans and duct tape in about 5 minutes. You haven't "stopped" anything other than the sales taxes the state might have collected from head shops.
