Capitol Hemp Shutting Down: Obama's War on Drugs to Blame
Description:Capitol Hemp sells clothing and soaps and a vast array of glass and other types of pipes. Police raided Capitol Hemp last fall after an undercover cop reported “unnatural and deceptive” behavior at the company’s Adams Morgan branch.
Under current law, drug paraphernalia is illegal. But since anything, from rolling papers to apple cores to beer cans, can be used to smoke pot, federal prosecutors rely on “context” to determine when a pipe is just a lawful pipe and not a contraband bong.(2:46)
