Smoke shops throughout state are hoping a new law, regulating what they can sell, will go up in smoke.
Thirty shops have sued to block enforcement of the rules, which took effect in July, and eventually to kill them.
The law, passed in the last legislative session, makes it a misdemeanor for a smoke shop to generate more than 25 percent of its sales from pipes or smoking devices.
“This act is a dismal failure,” said Clearwater lawyer Luke Lirot, who represents the stores. “You can’t have these shop owners held responsible for the intent of someone else.”
