Bill may ban sale of
pot 'aids' to minors
By JAY McCORMICK
Little Johnny and little Jane won't be
able to pop into Ye Olde Head Shoppe
and buy a Star Wars super-bong
anymore if a bill to ban the sale of
marijuana smoking materials to
minors is passed by the Michigan
House of Representatives.
The bill, backed by Rep. Perry
Bullard (D-Ann Arbor) and Rep.
Richard Fitzpatrick (D-Battle Creek),
would replace local ordinances that
have been created to ban the sale of
smoking devices to consumers.
In a telephone interview yesterday,
Bullard said part of the reason he is
backing the bill is "to be sure we don't
end up with the prohibition of such
materials in general."
IF THE BILL passes, persons under
age 19 will be prohibited from pur-
chasing smoking paraphernalia.
However, since the legislation was in-
troduced to the House-late in the term,
Bullard said its chance of passing
before Congress recesses is slim.
"It's hard to assess its chances,"
Bullard said. "The hotter the issue is,
the less likely the legislature will deal
with it quickly, though that depends on
the particular issue." However,
Bullard said he thinks the bill even-
tually will pass.
Since the minds and bodies of young
people are changing and developing, he
said, they should be more cauti
about drug use. But, Bullard said, t
bill cannot guarantee a decrease in
substance abuse in high schools and
middle schools. "It's difficult to
legislate that," he said.
BULLARD, A proponent of
legislation to legalize marijuana in
Michigan, said the proposed bill is "a
step in the right direction." The
passage of the bill might eventually
help Bullard's marijuana legalizati
efforts, but he said he could not be s
of such a result.
A recently passed bill legalizing
marijuana usage for medical purposes
also might help the chances for full
legalization of the drug. But, like Fit-
zgerald's bill, the effects will not im-
mediately be apparent.
The roles of state and local jurisdic-
tion concerning materials for
marijuana and tobacco use would be
clarified upon passage of the smoking
items bill. "If this bill passes, the s
(of ,smoking materials) cannot be
prohibited by local ordinance," Bullard
Fitzpatrick decided to introduce and
sponsor the bill after he learned of
statistics that show widespread use of
marijuana among minors.
HOLDING A BONG, Rep. Richard Fitzpatrick (D-Battle Creek) said he-
wants to ban such instruments for persons under age 19 because such
devices encourage: young people to use marijuana.
