Some smoke shops are finding clever ways to illegally sell cannabis to customers.
Former New Jersey Attorney General Chris Porrino saw it firsthand while doing some field research. “What I’ve heard more about recently is, we’re charging this amount for the vape pipe or the bong, and it’s X amount dollars more than it otherwise would be. And the marijuana is a gift. The notion that that makes the illegal legal, it’s laughable,” Porrino said.
“I’m not suggesting that the people who are buying in these stores on the grey market should be prosecuted or penalized. My view is the people who are selling it should be, because frankly, they’re dealing drugs illegally,” Porrino said.
