Governor Schwarzenegger Kills Bong Freedom Bill

California is a very confusing place. Medical cannabis is somewhat legal, but that three-foot skull bong sticking out of your convertible can earn you a trip to the slammer. Existing law makes it a crime to possess, deliver, furnish, or transfer drug paraphernalia, whether it be pipes, bongs, chillums, roach clips, papers — or everything else you can buy on Haight Street, Telegraph Avenue, and elsewhere. Local Assemblyman Tom Ammiano wanted to end the charade and make pipes legal with Assembly Bill 1811, but California reform group NORML reports this week that the Governor’s Office has effectively killed the bill.
