Pipe dreams 

The Oklahoma City Democrat announced his proposed crackdown — “crackdown,” get it? — after accompanying state Bureau of Narcotics officers on a Jan. 9 raid of an OKC convenience store that had been selling them.

Under current law, which Shelton authored a couple of years ago, a retailer can face up to a year behind bars and/ or a $1,000 fine for selling a crack or meth pipe. The legislator has vowed to strengthen the measure. 

“Buying a crack or meth pipe,” Shelton said in a news release, “should never be as easy as buying a
loaf of bread.”

The reality might even be more insidious, since CFN
notes warily that drug pipes are even easier to buy than a loaf of
bread. Drug pipes — and this is just what we’ve been told, dear readers —
don’t have an expiration date, and they don’t usually wind up squished
at the bottom of a grocery bag.
