Smoking in Seattle

Gerard van der Leun and a friend explore what is most definitely NOT a bong shop in Seattle. The store sells bongs, but they're called water pipes. And if you, the customer, refer to them as bongs, you will be ejected from the store. Seriously.

I love this remark from the friend, a financial analyst: "Somehow," Stephen says, "I don't think that store is a candidate for franchising."
