The Township is looking to join Langley City in regulating businesses 
that sell drug paraphernalia.

Currently the Township does not regulate drug paraphernalia, such as 
bongs, baggies, weights and pipes. They can be sold to anyone and can 
be displayed. If the bylaw is passed, it will require that all drug 
paraphernalia be kept out of view. The bylaw will restrict the age of 
purchase to 19.

Several years ago, police visited a corner store in Willoughby, along 
with two stores in Langley City which were displaying numerous bongs 
and pipes for smoking pot and other drugs. When the City created its 
bylaw, the stores were quick to come into compliance.
