You've heard of the new law about selling tobacco pipes in Florida. What you may not have heard is the Florida Smoke Shop Association (FSSA), a group of 75+ store owners, came together and donated time and money to protect your right to purchase what you want. 

Here's how you can help: 

First and foremost, when you come shopping for your new tobacco pipe, that's exactly what you should call it. Not sure what to say? ASK US. Help us be here for you. 

Second, look for the black and green MEMBER FSSA sign and shop where you see it. We're the ones who've got your back.

Third, get involved. This fight isn't over. 

Vote. Pay attention to your local politics.  This entire issue began with one elected representative in a Florida House district.  Ask questions and let your elected officials know where you stand... politely.

American politics is a money game.  Please contribute to help FSSA fight for smoker's rights in Florida. You can make a donation at Purple Ringer, 3915 Broadway Av, Fort Myers, 33901, or contact FSSA directly: floridasmokeshops.org/

Kratom, Blue Lotus, Wild Dagga, Organic Essential Oils

Kratom, wild harvested and organically grown, superior quality and no hyped up packaging. Do your own research and swing by! Maeng Da Kratom leaf and powder and Bali Kratom powder. Kava Kava 30% kavalactones. Blue Lotus. Wild Dagga. Purple Ringer also stocks Lover's Blend, Buddha Blend, and Sativah Natural Herbal smoking blends by the ounce or by the gram. International Oddities "legal bud" also available (for the entire 18 years we've been open) in one-gram sampler sizes as well as 1/2 ounce tubes and 1 ounce cans. Check out a gram of several different kinds before you spend a lot of $$. Most people tell us these natural smokes help them relax after a tough day, or make it easier to fall asleep at night - with no worries over legality. We even have organic catnip cheap (makes a great bedtime tea). Also gaining in popularity - Aura Cacia organic essential oils for aromatherapy and vaporizing. Aura Cacia essential oils are produced from pure, organic sources worldwide. Vaporizers and pipe attachments make it easy to inhale traditional therapeutic vapors! And as we explained in our all-time most popular post from a couple years ago, we never sold any of the drug-enhanced "incense/potpourri/Spice/whatever". We have friends in health care telling us now, 2 years later, they STILL see 10-12 people a month in the ER from store-bought synthetic drugs. Be smart and keep it natural!
