    i v been smokin for about 6 months now and i really want to get a good bong. i've been smoking out of a peace pipe i bought from a native american guy at a yard sale. it works good but i think its time i need a bong. Im only 15 but i can ride my bike to an awesome head shop in like 10 minutes.i tried to buy one there and i asked for an incense burner and the next week i asked for a water pipe.
    Both times the guy behind the counter recited the same speech about not sellin tobacco smokin products to minors. should try to bribe him or ask someone in the store to buy one for me.
    I dont wanna hang out outside of the store and ask people because the chance of someone who knows my parents will see me and ill have to take a drug test every week till i turn 18.
    should i try to buy one over the internet or is that even riskier.
    pz, :thumbsup:

    Well a couple days ago I made a post about buying a glass pipe (i am 14) and I will give you a summary of the answers I got. Try hanging out by the headshop till you see someone that looks cool, and give them the money to go buy it, but throw in an extra 5 bucks or sumthin so they go through with it. I wouldnt try buying online unless you get it sent somewhere other then your house and use a credit card other then your parents, because if it shows up at your hosue ur busted and if u use ur rents credit card your busted cuz itll show up on the bill. If you have a friend a year or 2 older then you see if he will buy it for you, they may not card him if he looks old enough. Other then those if you cant get ahold of one, try building one. BNe creative it doesnt have to be the old pop bottle. Some of the best bongs out there are home made.

    This would be the one weedman's talking about, if you wanna read it yourself, but his summary pretty much nailed it on the head.

    I'll reiterate my response. Go to your local bank and open a checking account. Request a debit card with it. Deposit enough money to buy your bong, plus shipping. Visit,,, or Order your bong. They'll usually tell you when it's gonna be sent, so make sure that you'll be there, and, more importantly, that your parents won't. Unless you're sure that they won't ask what the package is.

    thanks for the advice. this shop is real strict though and wont let me even look at them or tell me how much they cost. how much would just a decent one cost from a head shop. i have a lot of $$$ to spend on it but id rather spend that on gonna go get it tomorrow after work and get it. could somebody give me a estimate on the cost.

    I dont know where your located but up here in washington at the headshops they rip you off, a decent glass bong up here is like $450. Make sure you dont get ripped off, maybe have an expierienced friend with you. Also request one with a sliding carb, you'll thank me later.

    a quick trip to the hardware store can solve your troubles. a 1.5"" 1 foot piece of PVC pipe [1.50 canadian], and a cap for it [3$ canadian] and a simple home drill can make you a great bong. just install a joke, and your own bowl/necking piece [possibly use your old pipe, its what i did.] voila, you have your own great little bong. seal it around the cap/etc if you feel like, with sealer you would use on a window or whatnot. use water of course =]

    I think he would still get busted if he had his own debit card, cuz if hes a minor, it goes thru his rents and they get a copy of everything he buys with it.

    Maybe, but you cant send cash legally so that wont work, check out Not sure how it works but I heard you can get an account not throguh you parents. But a trip to the hardware store my solve your problem in a cheap way.

  15. If your in high school- no pun intended- then just make friends with some of the older stoners and get one of them to buy it for ya.

    In your situation, I'd say find an older pothead in your school and have him buy you one. Any highschool that is not some innercity ****hole would have loads of potheads. Make friends with some of them.

    Remember, most Headshops are weary of selling ANYTHING to a minor because if they are caught, they will get closed down.

    Lastly, why use a bong all the time? The best thing to do? Learn to roll nice j's.

    Everyone loves the guy who knows how to roll a nice joint. If you learn that skill you will always be a useful asset. There is alot of skill that goes into rolling a good joint. It is a highly respected trait, and it can impress people alot if you do it well, and shows that you know your stuff.

    I was taught by some older Dutch men while I was in Amsterdam on vacation, I was in HighSchool at the time. I could always do it before, but they taught me how to really do it with mastery.

    Everyone likes the bong or glass pipe because they are convenient and easy to use. You will earn admiration if you learn to roll your own.

    I'm sure there are places on the internet that would teach you how. But the best way to learn is to observe someone else, and be taught by someone.

    Practice on rolling tobbacco first. Once you have mastered that, use cannabis. Remember to break the cannabis down really fine so it is not clumpy and rolls well. You will find out what I mean.

    Yeah joints are nice but I like to taste my weed not the paper plus you need to use at least a g for a nice joint. If you smoke by yourself it's better to have a bowl. My bowl has a huge bowl and lasts forever.

    There are sites out there to teach you how to roll different kinds of joints. Check out It's like a search engine only for weed sites.
