    I am not a smoker, but I believe I have seen pipes that had one material on the outside for appearance and another material was used for the bowl where the combustion took place. I would try to use a traditional material for the actual, inside bowl. But one that is as "safe" as possible.
    There are pipes that are safe to use. We make them. However most metallic materials will have some form of toxicity when used for smoking.

I'm having to label all our products and frankly this kind of B.S. pisses me off.
    It's better to be pissed off and healthy.

    Thanks for all the responses.

    Its given me a lot of food for thought and yes I agree with many of the sentiments here. Its kind of ridiculous to be worried about health risks from a bit of brass when you are inhaling the burning fumes of god knows what.

    Really appreciate those who took the time to respond.

    We have pot plantations on 3 sides of us, they live in stolen campers with no water/sewer. They use a 2 sided fence with a 5 gallon bucket for a toilet, they dump the bucket in the creek after they use it ( there is never any tp in it ). The never washed dreadlock dope growers use their hand? wipe that on their pants? A stinky old machinist can smell a grower ar 12 feet easy. Anyhow you might loose your cookies when you see them digging through the veggies at the grocery store before you can. Whats 3% lead have to do with anything? If its shiny they will like it.

    I have read that wine growers are concerned the smell of the pot farms can be so bad that is driving off the wine tourists and their money.

    For most of 2 months it is like 100 dead skunks on your front porch, but on the good side, I understand the Bees make some awsome honey with the pot blooms if they survive the pesticides.
