Unhappy Adhesive on a broken base

Hey guys

Somehow my base broke today while I was driving to a friends house (the day before my birthday... ). It only broke into two peices, so I sealed it up with some EPOXY adhesive glue. It said on the box that it works with glass, but I would just like to know if, once it is fully dry (in about 16 hours), would I be able to smoke from it safely, or will the adhesive be toxic when smoking?

Thanks a lot for the help,
- Dennin

its just the base as long as its water proof you should be fine no heat should really get to it

Yep just make sure you seal it off completely it off or else you'll have a lovely fountain.

I would've used aquarium sealant but if epoxy works then it's fine. There isn't heat being applied directly to the base so its good.
