Default Re: Is our hobby going to vannish?

It will never die, as long as tobacco remains legal. It may loose some steam, but I don't think its nearly peaked yet.

There are a couple innovation that have happened to make hookahs more convienent. One of which, a convienent tobacco package, hasn't been released yet, but a couple companies (including Hobocans) is looking into it. I think this, paired with improved, easier to use hookah pipes, will force hookah into a more mainstream culture.

One of the shops I talk to in NYC, has recently removed all of their other "tobacco" pipes for exclusively hookahs. This seems to be the trend, and I think it wil be for at least the next couple of years. Hookahs may then peak, but not before there is a substantial enthusiast culture established (much like cigars: the fad faded, but it is still a multi-billion dollar industry).
