    go to your local headshop and by one of their slightly overpriced pipes if your worried about customs, ive heard of peoples pipes getting confiscated by customs, if im right operation pipe dream was the DEA's attempt to stop the online sale of paraphenelia. although im not sure if the DEA's attacks on retailers would effect your purchase.

    Operations Pipe Dreams And Headhunter Put Illegal Drug Paraphernalia Sellers Out Of BusinessNational Sweep Shuts Down Retailers, Distributors and Internet Sites
    [SIZE=-1]Acting DEA Administrator John B. Brown makes Operation Pipe Dreams announcement along with Attorney General John Ashcroft, ONDCP Director John Walters, and U.S. Attorney Mary Beth Buchanan

    [SIZE=-1]WASHINGTON, DC -- Attorney General John Ashcroft and Acting DEA Administrator John B. Brown, III today announced the indictment of 50 individuals on charges of trafficking in illegal drug paraphernalia. The charges are the culmination of two nationwide investigations code-named Operation Pipe Dreams and Operation Headhunter and include indictments against national distributors of drug paraphernalia and businesses nationwide. DEA offices in Boise, Idaho; Des Moines, Iowa; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; and Dallas and Tyler, Texas were involved in these investigations.
    [SIZE=-1]"With the advent of the Internet, the illegal drug paraphernalia industry has exploded," Ashcroft said. "The drug paraphernalia business is now accessible in anyone's home with a computer and Internet access. And in homes across America we know that children and young adults are the fastest growing Internet users. Quite simply, the illegal drug paraphernalia industry has invaded the homes of families across the country without their knowledge. This illegal billion-dollar industry will no longer be ignored by law enforcement. Today, the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force, under the leadership of Deputy Attorney General Larry Thompson and Associate Deputy Attorney General Karen Tandy, has taken decisive steps to dismantle the illegal drug paraphernalia industry by attacking their physical, financial and Internet infrastructures." ​
