Kicked out of a headshop!
    #3543584 - 12/26/04 02:50 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

This weekend I went to a headshop with my father-in-law and husband.  Anyway, we were checking out pipes, and my FIL makes a comment like, "That's a crack pipe," and the scruffy pierced dude behind the counter overhead it.  He gave us a lecture about how strict the laws are nowadays regarding comments of that type in a headshop, and then forced us to leave. 

I totally understood his position, but to be honest he was a real fucker with the way he went about "informing" us. 

That's my Christmas story.  :smile:

Yeah, he's soooooo getting your return business and making a sale!

It's my opinion, when possible, to support the glass blowers/metal workers of your area and get your pieces made / bought direct. You'll find better quality, cheaper prices, and if it's made for you, it'll be a lot more unique (which to me, is important for a good piece).

Meh. I hope he got a lump of coal from Santa!

I can understand why he wouldn't like a comment like that, but it doesn't deserve a kick out of the store..

i dont think the head shops I go to would do anything like that. I guess the headshops here are more relaxed. I dont think they had the right to kick you out, thats way too harsh. could have given you a warning if he has a problem.

Operation Pipe dreams dude, Tommy Chong got 9 months for admitting that his wears were used for drugs. They'r just watching they'r asses.
same with the hydro store, they are on such thin legal ground that it scares the crap out of them. Any customer could be that D.E.A agent gathering evidence to seize all they'r money.

This is only the case in the states. Down in the US, you can expect to be raided by the police for even referring to your bongs as bongs.

In Canada, you can generally allow your patrons to openly smoke pot and you'll be fine. In Toronto and other cities where there are public smoking laws, they generally specify tobacco. You just need to stop short at actually selling the stuff.

At one of my local headshops they have a little piece of paper that warns you will be kicked out if you even infer to illegal substances. If you want your headshop to keep running, appreciate being kicked out!

In Alabama, they have to kick you out if you referance any drug.  Seriously, they get a lot of visits from undercovers, and if one says "crack pipe" and makes a purchase later, boom, the shop gets shut down.  I wouldn't take it personally :smile:

Yeah, I saw a sign that said, "please do not refer to our water pipes as bongs," but that is the ONLY sign that I saw.

a local headshop here has a sign that says "all pipes are for tobacco use only"

yeah - 'cause a lot of people like to smoke tobacco out of a 5-foot water-bong... :grin:
