Ten Homemade Smoking Options if the State Bans Bongs and Glass Pieces

Last week, we gave you a heads-up about some new legislation in Tallahassee that might throw up roadblocks for recreational smokers. Rep. Darryl Rouson has put up a bill that will ban the sale of bongs and glass smoking pieces throughout the Sunshine State. Florida's Legislature has come down hard on paraphernalia in the past, so it's not so much of a long shot to see a day ahead when head shops' shelves are bare. But let's be honest: Is taking away the tools really going to slow use? Every stoner worth an eighth can tap an inner Al Borland and make do. Here's a field guide of possible alternatives.

10. Pen pipe
Easy enough. You don't have to be some DIY genius to cook one of these up. That might be why it's a favorite option with the young ones -- at least that's the impression we picked up on YouTube. The only people making these videos sound like the voices on the other end of the drive-through window.

9. POM bong
Traditionally, the Gatorade bottle has been the go-to for a jerry-rigged water bong. But it looks like the kids today are more into POM bottles, thanks to the container's va-va-voom shape. (On a side note, the creep in this video is going to make you want to immediately blunt all your senses as quickly as possible once you're done watching. That, or swear off all substances for the rest of your days).
