Description

After mini-mart owners in New York complained to police about the recent string of robberies at their businesses, WNEG-TV started an investigation and found that seven of ten mini-marts they investigated sold crack pipes from behind the counter. The pipes aren't classified as drug paraphernalia and therefore cannot be prohibited from being sold. However, most of the clerks who sold them either denied selling them or said they didn't know what they were for.
