I’m a pipe smoker/collector, and I like the occasional cigar. Whenever I’m in a new city, I look for signs of civilization, and smoke shops are the most obvious ones. This incident proves it.
Our buddy is England is probably wondering why the store owner wasn’t charged.

I think this place sells a different kind of pipe.

Maybe you didn’t get the message... but tobacco smokers are actually a lower form of life these days from pot smokers.
