UPDATE: I don’t know my Fremont smoke shops. You can also get water pipes and glass pipes at Wonderland on Fremont Boulevard at Chapel Way and Underground Smoke & Accessories on Thornton at Post Street.
The folks at Underground told me over the phone that they sell the stuff. The guy who answered the phone at Wonderland said that store didn’t sell them. But I visited this afternoon and, let me tell you, nothing could be further from the truth. They have quite a selection.
However, neither shop apparently has the necessary permit to sell the bongs and glass pipes that they offer, so both shops might be operating illegally. Oh well.
Fremont’s Planning Commission last week rejected a proposed head shop on Grimmer Boulevard in Irvington. So for now, the only place to feel good about buying pipes for marijuana smoking in Fremont is at the Devils Workshop in Niles.
Commissioner David Bonaccorsi was outspoken in his opposition to a head shop opening within a mile from Irvington High School. He also had plenty to say to a colleague about his very vocal support of the A’s.
But when Bonaccorsi challenged that colleague for the commission’s vice chairmanship, he got smoked. More on that soon.
