Lothruin, you have made some great points!  Smiley  I would also like to add...

In regards to the head shops...I believe we (read: Ohians  Wink) have to be 18 to purchase (or be in(?)) a headshop, because that is the legal age for even purchasing tobacco-related paraphernalia as well.  An tobacco is obviously what all of the items in a head shop are used for, lol.

Some "convenient" and "quickie marts" card for 18 and older, for even purchasing lighters.  Oh, and Walmart cards for purchasing spray glue.  Even though the cashiers always giggle when they have to ask for ID, I am in complete respect for them because it's all in a days work.  Some controls just need to be in place these days  Smiley

Quite technically, smoker is correct.  You can go down the street and buy a pipe or a water pipe of nearly infinite variety, plus roach clips, scales, etc., at the local head shop because they can be used to smoke legal substances and are only considered drug paraphernalia if they've actually been used for illegal substances.  (At least in my state, I don't know what the other states are like.)  For that matter, if you have a box of sandwich bags in your backpack, even a sandwich bag with actual sandwich crumbs, and are also caught with any marijuana, those sandwich bags are conisdered drug paraphernalia, and you might even get charged with intent to sell.  

And yes, I should have been more specific with regard to hemp.  All hemp products in the US are imported because it's illegal to grow hemp in the US.  I assume this is because it would be too difficult to allow hemp as a cash crop and also enforce the laws against growing cannabis as a drug.  But that was the point of my post, as it is a big issue for many people, considering how useful hemp is and how much more easily it is grown than many of the other products which can be used to make the same things, like cotton and, well, trees, so, like many other social causes people craft for, I know many people who craft with hemp specifically for the statement.  That's why I was interested in what the boundaries were.  Although, to be honest, I'd not be likely to craft either a smoking device or a crocheted hemp leaf, so I'm not in much danger from running afoul of the rule.  Just thought I'd bring it up for clarification, since the issue is fairly broad.

I commend you, I know you do not want to alienate anyoneon this site but the fact is, if some kid is caught smoking a joint by mom and then mom says why are you doing this and they say I learned it on craftster, then they come after you, I know it is stupid, but look ahow many stupid court cases there are out there that people win every day because of a technicallity.

I appreciate you letting us know,I was wondering where  my bookmark went, I was just a lurker wanting to read the comments...LOL Cheesy

Ah ha!  And I commend you for using the bookmark feature and not typing lurk on the thread   Cheesy

One page at a time seems the way to go frm what I have read and found out online.

Yea, that's good advice!  Smiley  I get wrapped up in one page until it's all done, otherwise I get overwhelmed.  Well, one page, or one theme, that is.  One theme can cover a few pages Smiley

Gather all of the photos, embellishments, colors, etc. that you want to include & just start playing around Smiley

I hope Emma is going to treat us all to pictures now, because the plan sounded enchanting and I'd love to see it.  Happy New Year!


I was just thinking the same thing...

15609  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Latest News / Re: 12/28/05 - What Serious Problems Are You Having Since the Server Move? on: December 28, 2005 04:40:28 PM
1. I also got the database error.  It was something about load & database.  It didn't look happy.
I often get "You have already posted this message"...when I really haven't!  I have learned if I write a long post, to Ctrl+A & Ctrl+C, so I don't lose the whole post because it gets very frustrating otherwise.

2. No, not for me..I check in the morning, at lunch & in the evening & always seems pretty random.

3. Central Ohio

4. always IE

5. Win XP Pro & Win Media Center 2003 (depending which PC I am on)

Tee hee!  That is hilariously cute.  Cheesy
