First let me apologize because this post is pretty unrelated to everything else on this blog, but I felt it needed to be shared.
Has anyone seen these? Because I see the ALL THE TIME at gas stations and convenience stores. Behind the counter are little fake roses in a glass tube. At first my eye passed over them, seeing the thing simply as it appeared – a cheap gas station trinket, similar to the rings (and “Homies” toys – if anyone doesn’t know what those are please google it) in the 25 cent machines.
However, while watching an episode of A&E’s “Intervention” I had a revelation. I watched the girl on the screen as she smoked her crack pipe, and thought to myself, where does one even find a crack pipe? I can’t see them being produced in bulk anywhere, but everyone on this show managed to find the SAME crack pipe, so what is it’s legal purpose? Then it clicked. The “I Love You Rose” in the glass tube at gas stations. A not-so-secret cover for crack and meth pipes.
The straight pipe (I mean rose tube) on the left is a meth pipe, and the tube with the round part at the end is a crack pipe. Unbelievable. Who manufactures these???
