Clint Hames makes me want to laugh or cry. He's inside harassing a 
cashier, who flat out says she won't sell drug paraphernalia to 
children, yet he completely ignores the fact that drug dealers are 
out in the street with no such qualms as long as the kids have the money.

As for pipes and papers "enabling people to use drugs," he's wrong 
again. Drugs let people use drugs. Pipes are just a convenience. 
Seriously, has an empty pipe ever once caused intoxication? I'd love 
to see that trick.

And to complete the trifecta of ignorance, he goes on to rail about 
the idea that stopping the sale of these items would somehow stop 
kids (who aren't even able to buy them) from using drugs, which means 
he obviously doesn't understand the quality of children's drug 
education. Children are shown every possible way and method to 
consume intoxicants, not by movies and criminals, but by your police 
and teachers in their school's presentations.
