Earlier this year, Saugerties was the first town to ban synthetic drugs at convenience stores, and it still has the toughest law on the books. Last week the town took things a step further and banned the sale of drug paraphernalia. The ban will mainly affect local shops that sell glass and water pipes. The pipes are sold for tobacco use but are mainly used by customers to smoke marijuana. The penalty is a misdemeanor, carrying a $100 to $500 fine.
