Maybe it is because I am a law and order type of guy. I like the idea of certain things being legal and illegal. When I saw two places sprout up in Pullman in the last two years I was concerned. Unlike WalMart which sells things that law-abiding citizens need and use, we have two places near Dissmores that sell "Tobacco" accessories.
No cry of foul when these businesses opened shop. No one tried to stand in the way. Any wonder why they are BOTH on the north side of town close to the student population? I know why they did it. When selling bongs and pipes you want to be close to the people who buy them.
I wonder, if both businesses are clean, why they would take the time to cover all their windows so you cannot see in from the outside. What are they hiding? Why do they hold hours of stoners? Tobacco smokers typically are not sleeping in until 10 or 11 everyday.
Besides, what "accessory" does a tobacco smoker need? A lighter, some matches, and maybe an ashtray. There is no need to cover the windows if that is all you sell.
The bottom line is that they are selling items that drug users use. Thursday's bust only proves that. A couple of the stores' owners were busted for pot possession. They also found pot at the store itself.
WalMart may be an "evil" corporation which sells low-cost products to small town America, but at least they are not selling bongs to the college students.
