Smoke and Head Shops

The Medical Marijuana Mall USA provides a list of Smoke and Head Shops at the bottom of the page intended for assisting in the use and purchasing of medical marijuana supplies. It is important to know that head shops exist in a legal grey area because of the nature of the materials they sell, which can be used for both legal and illegal drugs. The sale of certain drug paraphernalia is considered illegal in some states. Head shops often argue that their products are not illegal drug paraphernalia because they are intended for use with herbs, tobacco, and other legal substances.

By the early 2000's, with the passage of state laws allowing for medicinal marijuana, head shops have reemerged regionally and on the Internet to service that health market. In many head shops, a sign will be posted (and often reiterated verbally) stating that customer references regarding the use of the shop's products for illegal drug use will result in suspension of all sales for that time period, and/or removal of the customer from the shop. Head shops often place signs stating that the products sold are "for tobacco use only" or "not for use with illegal substances".
