US Customs and Border Protection officials seized a shipment of almost 4,000 bongs at Washington Dulles International Airport, the agency said.
The $56,000 shipment arrived from China manifested as "gravity pipes," the CBP said in a press release earlier this week.
CBP import specialists "confirmed that the glass bongs violated U.S. laws on the importation of drug paraphernalia," the release said.
The bongs were headed to an address in Los Angeles County, California.
CBP officers screen international passengers and cargo for "illicit narcotics, unreported currency, weapons, counterfeit consumer goods, prohibited agriculture, and other illicit products that could potentially harm the American public, U.S. businesses, and our nation's safety and vitality," the release said.
Thanks to the CBP officers all those dangerous pipes are off the streets now. Without our government, who would steal thousands of pipes and pretend that this isn't just armed robbery with extra steps?
Anyway, luckily they didn't seize our stuff and our Black Friday Sale is still on? Everything is off 30% until tomorrow, you definitely shouldn't miss that.
