Staring July 1, Florida residents won’t be able to purchase bongs — but “water” pipes for tobacco use will remain legal, reported.

Republican governor Rick Scott signed the law, which will take effect July 1. Under the new law, anyone who is caught owning or selling a pot pipe will initially be charged with a criminal misdemeanor, but a second offense will result in a felony charge.
