Be Back Soon
Steve of Steve the Pirate fame will be covering for me for a while. I've got some legal matters to handle.
One quick rant before I go. Kids these days have pretty much open access to drugs now. Thanks to those idiots on the left, a simple word substitution changes drug paraphernalia into something legal. Take for instance bongs. Change the name to 'water pipe' and suddenly it's a device for smoking something totally legal.
The same thing goes with a simple propellant. Most people know that if you inhale the gas from a can of whipped cream, that you get a little buzz. This is because the propellant they use is nitrous oxide, a.k.a. laughing gas. Nitrous oxide is used because it doesn't add flavor to the cream.
What many people are unaware of, is that you can buy canisters of this propellant over the counter. You see, kitchens that use a lot of whipped cream find it cheaper to buy whipping cream in cartons and then use cans fitted with this propellant to make lots of whipped cream for pies and cakes and such.
Here's where the problem comes in: Smoke shops in the Las Vegas valley can sell these same canisters (if you say it is for baking) over the counter. That is not a big issue with me. The problem is that they are selling devices to open the canisters so that the gas can be captured in balloons and subsequently inhaled. This should count as drug paraphernalia if ever there was.
Why is this legal? Why is it that a 16-year-old kid can get their hands on one of these? Why isn't Diversity Tattoo and Smoke Shop being investigated daily for contributing to the delinquency of a minor? Answer: Liberals.
