US Code 21-863 refers to all materials used to manufacture tobacco accessories; Wood, Meerschaum, Ceramic, Glass, and Metal. In specific, pipes with carb devices (third holes) are considered to be paraphernalia regardless of the material used to manufacture the pipe. Traditional tobacco accessories like pipes, cigar and cigarette holders and hookah / sisha pipes are not included in the list of contemporary accessories. U.S. vs. Posters & Things (Supreme Court - 1996) upholds this code as the Objective standard by which paraphernalia is judged. Further, it describes other relevant factors in this determination to include whether the owner is a licensed distributor or retailer of tobacco products! Ten states have adopted USC 21-863 as state law, three more are in the process of adoption. All other states have either less rigorous SUBJECTIVE (intent) statutes or no law on this subject at all! All Glass pipes conform to RTDA guidelines for bowl depth and width.
