The Heir Waterpipe is the Most Beautiful (and Best) Bong You’ll Ever Hit
With recreational marijuana use legal in nine states and Washington, D.C., and medical marijuana legal in a further 21 states (and counting), weed no longer bears the stigma of stonederdom that surrounded the drug’s rise in popularity from its reputation as a 1960s counter-cultural connection to the commodity it is today. As a multi-million dollar commercial industry with consumers ranging in age from 21-year-olds to octogenarians, the weed paraphernalia market is finally taking the design and creation of its products seriously. No longer are cheap ceramic bowls and plastic, six-foot bongs the only options for a guy (or gal) who likes to sit back at the end of the day and take a load off by taking a bong rip or two. Instead, pipe and accessory makers are going full-luxe in their designs now that weed in many places has become as socially acceptable as drinking.
