    Default First conviction in Camden Town bong ban 'sets precedent' for more police raids

    POLICE have vowed to push on with an operation to make Camden Town a bong-free zone after a shopkeeper was convicted yesterday (Wednesday) of selling thousands of items of drug paraphernalia.

    Ramalar Munjal pleaded guilty to supplying items, including glass bongs and king-size Rizla papers, that he admitted could be used to smoke cannabis, from a souvenir stall in Camden High Street. The 55-year-old also pleaded guilty to a second count of supplying scales, grinders and “self-seal snap bags”, that he admitted could be used to prepare cannabis for use.

    The conviction at Highbury Magistrates’ Court is the first since police announced a crackdown on what has been a long-standing trade in Camden High Street.
    Never in all of my days have I heard of someone being charges for possession or sale of bongs, papers etc in this country.

    Which makes this a little troubling:

    Bongs, pipes and smoking papers have been on sale in NW1 for decades, but in October members of the local police Safer Neighbourhood Team warned that they were to begin enforcing a little-known section of the Misuse of Drug Acts, which makes it an offence to sell anything that you know will be used to “prepare a controlled drug for administration”

    The police would need evidence of those items being used. They can't just raid on assumption. Heck if that was the case then they should be raiding every smoke shop in the country. Some people like smoking flavoured tobacco in bongs.

    That's my thoughts, if they do have a 'clampdown' I'm sure with a half decent lawyer they could put this whole operation into question.

    Just saying, I've been going into Camden Town occasionally for the past 10 years, and I would tell everyone to not buy their smoking equipment from the shops in Camden High St.
    The grinders fall apart and are often knockoffs of other brands, and the bongs weren't of great quality either.

    I honestly hope it's not coming across like I'm hating, but I'm just saying I hope they don't go into legit headshops and do this, however as for Camden Town their smoke shops have been tourist traps since day 1. Just speaking from years of being ripped off, unfortunately.

    So all vacuum sealed apparatus like lunch boxes, mason jars etc are also illegal then? As they can also be used. Remove king skins we will use small skins on lplates foil buckets, apple bongs. Fucking morons... Well played UK..
