That makes no sense, it's illegal to import them but they sell them in the country itself? Hmm.. I'm sorry.

it is on the prohibited imports list in the customs in formation for importers "hookahs (also known as arguileh, hubble bubble, shisha, sheesha, Turkish, or water pipes)" i have only been able to find the 1 store that sells them and im not gonna risk spending money on a decent hookah only to get in seized by customs. so obviously the sellers of the hookahs are breaking the law but thats nothng to do with me

Sucks, man. It seems like that's one of the "inhale" brand hookahs. They're not too bad, but they're not quality either.

It'll definitely work though.

thats too bad man. Hopefully it eventually changes so you can hook yourself up with a quality KM. Is it still illegal if you left the country and came back with one in your possession?

all are illegal to import and also illegal to bring 1 into the country at all. well obviously the vendor i got it from has "smuggled" some in. i thnk if u gt all parts in serperate shipments it will be fine eg. base, stem, hoses all in different packages as seperately they cant be used for anythng. but i dnt have the money to pay for 3 lots of shipping from the US.

My guess is it is just the vendor selling only chinese rigs... kinda like how the hookah shops in my town only carry chinese rigs... which is why i only buy hookahs online
