Playa del Carmen’s Walmart has started selling bongs on their cigar kiosk, according to an article in The Cannabist. They go for about $140 a pop. So what did Walmart say when they were asked about the bongs? They’re not actually selling them, they said. Instead, they have rented a space in which a third party vendor can sell supplies. This vendor must comply with state regulations and laws as well as the rules of the store.
Walmart stated that since the bongs could have legal purposes like smoking tobacco (nothing better than a bong hit of tobacco). A few hours after that initial statement, Walmart then released a another one saying that they are going to review the current situation to see whether or not it was the right move. Although they aren’t breaking any laws, some shoppers might not be too happy with the result.
