Former crack addict wants to ban bongs in Florida


Darryl Rouson is a former crack addict and current Democratic member of the Florida House of Representatives. He has sponsored a bill to ban all bongs, glass bowls, roach clips and other marijuana paraphernalia, since he believes weed is the gateway to crack. “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 says. Those dismissing the chances of Rouson’s bill should know he was recently elected leader of the Florida House Democrats. Broward Palm-Beach New Times has the story.
