They didn't even read you your rights?

Man, I would've taken them to court.

Hate that it happened to you. It sucks when they think bad things about hookah.

But on the flip side, They had every right to put you in handcuffs and make sure you are detained while they investigate what you are smoking and contrary to popular belief, just because you are in handcuffs doesn't mean you are arrested, and they dont' have to read you your rights until they are charging you.

It sucks, and a sucky situation to be in, but just be glad that they saw that it wasn't bad stuff, and let you go.

Okay that is some BS. They should have been polite and asked what was in the bowl so you could offer to show them that it was TOBACCO in it!

Geez I wished some cops wouldn't stereotype so I don't have to be wary to smoke outside in the public

I'm sorry that this happened to you that's really crappy

Yeah something like that happened to me, but man sometimes that happens cause the cops and the people are ignorants, here in Mexico the hookahs are unkown most of the people thinks that are for smoking *** or something but all is fault of the ignorance. Don't get to piss try to understand and what the hell if they don't know what a hookah is, they are losing the opportunity to try some of the most amazing experiences in the world.

Amen! lol

So many people are like "EW! You smoke tobacco?" because when they think tobacco...They think nasty cigs and start thinking hookah is exactly the same. I don't think so :P They have no idea on what da heck they're talking about

What pisses me off is that the presence of a hookah (at least in some places) gives cops the right to detain you on probable cause or suspicion.

The hookah itself is not a possible indication of drug use.... but rather the smell or a visual confirmation of the material being smoked.

I wouldnt mind the police inquiring and inspecting the contents of my bowl...but cuffin me up and tossin my shit even tho they may have the right would really piss me off.

One thing I always do when smoking out doors at a park or even on my front porch is have the container of tobacco Im smoking right there with me. The printed packaging with product matching appearance and smell will help out the credibility of your story.

Sorry dude, but they do NOT have the right to put you in handcuffs or otherwise detain you -- or even question you, without cause. Fourth Amendment of the Constitution says so. Clear case of tyranny

Beat me to it. Well look at the bright side, at least they didn't confiscate your hookah.

The cops over here in my area don't seem to mind, even the underage kids can smoke at a park and stuff. Once in a while they'll come up and check though.

That sucks! I've never smoked outside here, but I imagine the cops would do the same thing. Some cops are just dicks.

yeah, i've had a few people come to my fence(my backyard faces a major street) and ask about it, and have had several cops come and talk to me while smoking in the park with my friends. never anyone actually try to arrest me. I've gotten more trouble from cops while smoking handrolled cigarettes than smoking hookah, those almost got me arrested at the Louisiana Boardwalk, where I used to work at a kiosk.

it seems here the ignorant people are more worried than the cops.

i was at a starbucks and this ignorant "supervisor" said they dont have a license to allow hookahs. My friend made me back off but i wanted to rip his head off. A dude is smoking a cigarette next to us and all he kept saying was "license". I was going to have him call the cops and have the cops explain that we were on public property (the sidewalk) and that he could kiss my ass
