Many people have their own opinions when it comes to online bongs and the use of cannabis especially in Australia. There is a clear lack of knowledge and education in the topic which leads to the development of a lot of myths that are just simply not true. Understanding everything you need to allows you to create your own informed opinion about the matter.
As the digital world has evolved, many people are turning to the internet for all of their shopping needs. This doesn’t exclude recreational drug paraphernalia either as if there is a product you are after you can get in on the internet.
Below we are going to talk about some of the myths around buying online bongs that many people seem to have.
Internet purchases are more expensive
Due to Australia not having a lot of brick and mortar stores it is common for people to think that online bongs are more expensive. However this is a very common misconception that people have due to the lack of information available. Internet stores are able to stock their inventory in bulk which allows them to pass those savings onto their consumers.
Legitimate businesses won’t price gauge their items and will sell them at a fair price. Drop shipping these products is also very common and can save both parties a lot of money.
Online bongs are illegal
This is one of the more prominent myths that people get in their head. While Cannabis and Marijuana are illegal in Australia, the paraphernalia that goes along with them are not. As long as you are over the age of 18 when you make the purchase you shouldn’t face nay legal repercussions.
There are some brick and mortar stores that sell these products but they are advertised as water pipes or are “intended for tobacco use”. This allows them to be sold to the Australian public as they are promoting recreational drug use. As long as the online bong that you are ordering is labeled for tobacco use you should be absolutely fine.
Internet stores will take ages to arrive
While it may take a long time for packages from overseas to reach your door in Australia, there are now distributors in our own country. This means that you don’t have to wait too long to get the product that you are after. The waiting period comes from the distributor importing their stock. Rather than being shipped to you from overseas, it will come from a local warehouse where the inventory is packed and ready to go.
Having the online bongs packed and mailed locally decreases the chances that it will be damaged in transit as well. When you think about it the worst part of the journey would be it coming into Australia. Once here it can be professionally wrapped to the specifications of our postal system.
It’s too hard to return online bongs
All stores in Australia are required to give their customers a fair refund policy as per the consumer affair laws. This means that if a product or service didn’t match the expectations of a consumer, they are entitled to a full refund. This also applies to online bongs and from such means it is really easy to return them. Some stores specifically have a change of mind clause where you can return the item under a certain amount of days for a full refund, guaranteed that it has not been used.
Stores that don’t have this policy are only enforced to give a full refund or replacement if the product does not operate as intended.
