Since there's no way I can get zig-zags, or any other rolling paper, my only other option is a pipe. Since I can't get a "real" pipe, my only option is to make my own. The only way I know how to make my own is with pipes from home depot. I know that I can only use iron and brass... right? And I'm supposed to blow torch them to clean them? I imagine that blow torching them might uhhh... well it might clean any dangerous chemicals off but wouldn't it make the pipe smell bad afterwards? And pipes were meant for drinking water to run through... wouldn't they be clean enough already? And also for the screen, I'll have to use one of those screens you put underneath a focet. There's nothing wrong with these, right? I've thought up a lot of ideas for a pipe... some of them might not work through. The most basic one I can think of is having a regular shaped pipe... a bowl going down to an elbow to a tube where you put your mouth. The screen would go in the bowl and the weed would go on top of the screen and the smoke would go through the screen... simple. Another idea I had was to bascically do a "backwards" pipe. Smoke rises, and much of the precious smoke in the above example would rise out of the pipe, unless I was taking a hit. I thought that I could take a bowl, put a screen in it, put the weed in it, then when I light it, I'd have a seperate peice that I'd put over the bowl. It'd be a tube that fits nicely over the top of the bowl and when I'm not taking a hit, the smoke would rise into the pipe and less smoke would be wasted. What do you think about this? One more idea I had was to make a wet pipe. I'm not sure how I'd do this though. I'm not exactly sure how I'd get the smoke to go through the water. I could make a chamber for the water in the pipe. It would be something of an extended version of the above example with a water chamber. I'm just not sure if the smoke would go through the water. Any input would be appreciated.
