Are these bongs “destructive utensils” that “destroy communities”? The Florida Senate thinks so.

​The Florida Senate has unanimously passed a bill that would ban the sale of glass smoking pipes at most stores that currently carry them.

Senate Bill 366 requires 75 percent of a business’s gross sales to come from tobacco products before they are allowed to sell bongs, water pipes and “air-driven pipes,” reports WJHG.
It passed the Senate unanimously, 36-0, on Wednesday.
Supporters of the legislation claim the pipes can be used to smoke illegal drugs like marijuana and cocaine.
The proposal could hurt some businesses, like Condom Knowledge in Panama City Beach.
