Check out this beautiful 12 inch tube from Bio Hazard glass! This piece arrived from SmokeFox.com – a fantastic site with a nice variety of great glass
This particular pipe is a beautiful short tube with a diffused downstem and an ice catcher above the joint. The bowl size is your standard 14mm and this piece is well worth the price.

Here is an older review I did for the Fumo Pipe after realizing it wasn’ t online anywhere! This the the Fumo Pipe! Unbreakable, made of Billet aluminum and polycarbonate – not only safe to smoke from, but enjoyable too due to the cooled smoke and greater control over smoke intake. Can also be used as a vaporizer with any of the “herb irons” out there, making it even better!
You can find the Fumo Pipe online at many different retailers including WickiePipe and GrassCity. A lot of people would say it’s very similar to the Incredibowl m420 in size and function.
Here is a video from Reason.TV showcasing Rabbi Jeffrey Kahn of Washington, DC’s struggle to keep his dispensary open in the face of being harassed by the federal government. (thanks for the video post!): —-
“”[The federal government] should know who is a pot dealer and who is not. For them to pretend otherwise is ridiculous,” says Rabbi Jeffrey Kahn. Kahn, an ordained rabbi who has served congregations for over 30 years, is opening a medical marijuana dispensary in Washington, D.C. this summer alongside his wife. Kahn says the federal government has made it impossible for him to get a bank account for his small business.
Medical marijuana is legal in D.C. and 18 states, but it’s still illegal under federal law. This means that even though Kahn is abiding by D.C. law, banks won’t work with his business for fear of losing FDIC protection–or worse. Kahn says he has not been able to open a bank account with any financial institution. If he is forced to be a cash-only business, he will be more vulnerable to crime and IRS auditing.

Residents of Delaware voted to pass medical marijuana legislation and it was signed into law in 2011. The problem is, 2 years later, there are still no dispensaries or any access to medical marijuana for patients. This is a heinous oversight as patients are left having to resort to illegal methods to obtain their medicine.
This is similar to situations in other medical marijuana states, namely New Jersey. In 2010, former governor Corzine signed NJ’s medical marijuana law before Governor Christie took office. It is now 2013 and there have only been a total of TWO permits issued to dispensaries in the entire state of NJ. Clearly, these states need to stop trying to ignore the laws we citizens voted to put into place!
Here is part one of “The Science and Politics of Marijuana” – part of a series of talks from the MAPS (Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies) 25th Anniversary conference back in 2011. All 7 parts can be found on YouTube through the video below. Videos feature Donald Abrams MD, Lyle Craker PhD, Sue Sisley MD, Martin Lee, Clint Werner, Fred Gardner, Amanda Reiman PhD MSW, Dale Gieringer PhD, Debby Goldsberry, & Steph Sherer and is moderated by Allen Hopper JD (ACLU of Northern California).
The discussions you’ll hear in the videos go into detail on the topic of the science and politics of marijuana – what has been researched and discovered, and how politics is affecting the information from being released or used properly. Over 10 years ago, an important government study was released regarding a few specific patients’ use of marijuana as recommended by their doctors. The Institute of Medicine, a branch of the National Academy of Sciences, issued what was then the most comprehensive analysis of the scientific and medical literature about cannabis, and it stated, “The accumulated data indicate a potential therapeutic value for cannabinoid drugs, particularly for symptoms such as pain relief, control of nausea and vomiting, and appetite stimulation.” A vast number of doctors and other medical professionals continue to caution about harms that may result from smoking marijuana, though these need to be weighed against the other harms that patients could be facing. In the political realm, the debate over the legal status of medical marijuana continues on. The videos run about 339 minutes in total – check them out at your leisure!
