G-Spot Pipe
The G-Spot Glass Sherlock Pipe is the perfect combination of art and functionality.

G-Spot has been pumping out the highest quality glass bongs since 2000, and now they have made their products accessible in the form of hand pipes. The fumed glass changes color with time and use, so the pipe will grow as you do, but if you are a sucker for the original artwork a little cleaning will bring it back to its original look.

The flat bottom makes it easy for the pipe to stand up on any flat surface and the tilted mouth piece makes it a breeze to smoke.

Maryland Marijuana Decriminalization

Maryland’s new marijuana decriminalization law has begun. The new bill will allow for citizens in possession of up to 10 grams of marijuana to receive a simple fine.

The law originally stated that anyone found in possession of any amount of marijuana can be arrested and serve up to a 90 day prison sentence. But as of October 1, violators will instead be issued a ticket. The first ticket will be for $100, the second for $250 and then $500 for any tickets thereafter.

A strange amendment to the law has made it still illegal to possess any and all marijuana paraphernalia. This includes everything from a 3 foot glass bong to a rolling paper. So someone caught smoking a joint could technically be arrested for the rolling paper, but not the marijuana itself.

However, as a result from public outcry by marijuana activists in Maryland, lawmakers have said that they will look into the idea of doing away with this law in the next year.

Medical marijuana has been legal in Maryland since June 1, 2014, and patients are allowed to carry paraphernalia worry free.
