You are not allowed to talk about weed in a smoke shop at all... the pipes and bongs they sell are for Tobacco use only (thats what they say to get away with selling paraphernalia)
The second you mention weed, they'll usually just kick you out.
Wherever you are weed is probably illegal and they are considered glass art so they can be sold in public. You can use words like that because it's just sort of a taboo? They won't be able to keep their business license if they get that type of reputation. Sort of like food or many other things, they have to change things to get around the law.
because he could get in trouble, in a smoke shop everything they sell is legal because its implied to be tobacco use only, which is why you have to call it a water pipe when your in the store
Its cuz even tho most people buy pipes and bongs to smoke weed with at smoke shops for legal bullshit they have to say its for smoking spice and tobacco.
He could get into legal trouble for peddling drug paraphernalia
cos the feds are listening
