Default can smoke shops plz get more variety?

ok heres the story... i went to my local smoke shop (not a cigar shop but a hookah bar\smoke shop) that happens to be down the street from my house to pick up some shisha and some stuff for my km. they advertise "they have everything... from the top names". they had plenty of bowls but no funnels\vortex bowls. also looked for a possible hose upgrade nothing was better than my stock mya that came with my km. and for shisha... starbuzz, fumari, and al waha. so disappointing. i ended up coming outta the shop with a 250g can of exotic 69 for 18 bucks! i still feel a little robbed. lol. sticking to online shopping i can see.

how is the variety at your local smoke shops?

Mad_Hatter, come on man. That's not a shop we should be promoting here. They are not a cigar and hookah shop by any means...

My usual shop sells KM hoses and mya-style ones, and they have a pretty big selection of shisha - the only nak they have is DA in a 250g box, but they also have SB, AF, Layalina, Poof Poof, and Fusion. Oh, they have large generic funnel bowls too.

While that may be true it's the same thing as discussing the products themselves. If we discuss it here on the boards then we will show up when people search for it in google. I suggest avoiding mentioning the names of such shops. Just a friendly suggestion to help keep our community nice and clean.

Why would you get starbuzz when they had fumari?

That's like taking $100,000 down to your local Mercedes dealer, and driving home with an AMC Gremlin (Having paid the Mercedes-Benz price for it).

haha. fumari was 100g for 11 dollars lol.. so for 250g it would have been roughly 28 dollars. and i knew a 100g wouldn't hold me over too long so i figured it was more cost efficient to buy the sb. plus the code 69 smelled soo good. even though idk how its gunna smoke yet. im hoping its sweeter than my citrus mist though.

The owner of tonic lives and serves most of Sac so most places hold Tonic tobacco. But the other brands at shops around here are Pharaoh's and Starbuzz. I wish they would at least hold some AF like back in Jersey...

I've smoked with the Tonic owner before he has this tobacco flavor called (I think) crystal and it's like $250 for a kilo? He want's to be know for having the most expensive tobacco lol It's some pretty amazing stuff though i must say =3

Not sure what the problem is, they seem to be like every other modern smoke shop on this planet. Modern as in its a smoke shop, smoke shops mainly carry everything from a-z in a modern smoker's arsenal, be it bob marly Tees, detox, and yes even the traditional classic cigar/pipe tobaccos.

I think pointing it out as a negative connotation for the forum's well-being is quite ignorant, double the fact that in this post it is in reference to shisha tobacco.

I guess you never actually read the post about why we don't mention such things. I would hope that you have but it's evident to the contrary.

If you go to the site there is one product that is available to browse. It's a product that even the name of is banned from posting on this site. That should tell you something. If you are not allowed to link to sites selling such things why should it be acceptable to post about them at all? There is nothing ignorant about making sure we are not mistaken for a community that supports such things?

Have you looked at the public ban announcement thread? Look at the reasons. Notice a trend? Look familiar?

I go to lots of smoke shops of varying types. I have no issues avoiding those kind of shops. All of those around me are true smoke shops rather than ones focusing on illegal substances. I don't go to them because to do so would associate me with the illegal activities they promote. The exact same reason we don't discuss such things on the forums.
