Can I buy a bong or a pipe?



Can you possess it?



This is a real head-scratcher for most of us.


A store can sell you what is obviously a device intended for the consumption of a controlled substance, but you can't possess paraphernalia.


It's a distinction without a difference to argue that it can be used for a non-controlled substance. That's not the issue. The only question is can it be used to ingest a controlled substance.


If it can be used to consume a controlled substance it is a narcotic implement, also known as drug paraphernalia.
