Bad news, potheads. The House voted 112-3 on a bill that bans the sale bongs and pipes that could be used to smoke marijuana.
Ex-crackhead Rep. Darryl Rouson believes that The Pot is a gateway drug to things like The Crack. Therefore, he sponsored the bill to ban all bongs, glass bowls, roach clips, and other things that can be used as a marijuana smoking device, such as a two-liter bottle and duct tape (although, how these things can be policed is anyone's guess).

This boils down to retail stores not being able to sell these items.
"If we can make people drive to Georgia and Alabama and South Carolina to get fireworks, they can drive to get these utensils of death," he recently told New Times.
Of course, there are always other means in which to smoke. And we provided a list of alternative UTENSILS OF DEATH for you to get your toke on here.
The real problem is that the ban will screw with local businesses that sell bongs and pipes. Some bongs are reportedly worth nearly $3,000 a pop.
Molly Davis, an owner of a shop that sells bongs, says hers and other businesses will now crash and burn thanks to the new law.
"It's going to destroy my home and career and family," Davis told WESH.com. "Both me and my husband will have to find new jobs, and we have two babies."
So while the majority of America is passing bills legalizing the use of marijuana for medical purposes, Florida is going out of its way to ban weed on all levels while destroying family-owned businesses in its wake.
But feeding your children and paying your bills through the selling of the utensils of death is no way to make a living.
Florida gonna Florida!
