More Stupidy from the Drug War
I heard this on the radio on my way home from work.
An attorney has launched a campaign to stop the sale of small glass tubes containing plastic roses at northeastern Indiana convenience stores.

The tubes are crack pipes in disguise, Jordan Lebamoff said. He has taken out a newspaper advertisement in Fort Wayne asking people to boycott stores selling the tubes.

Indiana State Police Sgt. Rodger Popplewell said that once the plastic rose was removed, the tubes could be stuffed with steel wool to create a cigarette-like pipe for smoking crack.

In November, police in Greensboro, N.C., arrested nearly 60 people after raids at 10 convenience stores were prompted by the sale of rose tubes
