Vancouver (WA) considers ordinance to keep bongs, pipes hidden at convenience stores

It soon might be a little harder to know whether your local convenience store carries glass bongs, pipes and other drug paraphernalia.

The Vancouver city attorney's office is working on a draft ordinance that would require convenience stores to keep drug paraphernalia out of sight and in a secure area -- and to sell it only to people 18 and older.

The City Council could consider the ordinance as early as March. It's currently being reviewed by Clark County's government.

The ordinance would be a victory for PREVENT!, a local substance-abuse-prevention coalition, which has been pursuing restrictions on the sale of drug paraphernalia for two years. The organization made a presentation to the Vancouver City Council in January, where it urged the council to pass an ordinance that would prohibit children from buying paraphernalia. Tacoma and Spokane have passed similar ordinances.

2. Aren't those usually found in tobacco smoke shops

 

And the pot shops for med MJ. I would never think of looking for a bong at a 7-11, or even a liquor store.

3. See 'em all the time in Oregon and Washington.

Both states have smoke shops, too.
