When it comes to presidential memorabilia, buttons, hats and shirts are the norm. But an Oregonian entrepreneur wants you to "Feel the Bern" while you blaze up with a partisan marijuana pipe. Stoned Ware Company - an online store operated by Portlander Ariel Zimman - offering special Bernie Sanders campaign pipes.
The pipes come in three sizes - chillum, small and large (ranging from $30-$60 USD). Each one is branded with the Bernie 2016 logo and a cameo featuring Sanders' iconic glasses and mussy hair. They're also hand-crafted from porcelain and made in America. Here's a sneak peak:
Our inbox is imploding with Bernie love after making the first page of Reddit this morning. Now into the studio to start filling orders. #stonedwareco #burnoneforbernie #burnersforbernie #berniesanderspipe #berniesanders #bernie #bernie2016 #berniesanders2016 #feeltheburn #feelthebern #claypipe #handmade #usa
The pipes aren't officially licensed or endorsed by Sanders. But Zimman has donated some of the contributions from these souvenirs to Bernie's campaign. Indeed, according to her website, she's reached the maximum limit on the amount she can donate to Sanders. So a portion of the proceeds from the pipes will be donated to STEM and other charities.
So if you're looking for a new spin on the phrase "hitting the campaign trail," consider adding one of these pipes to your cannabis kit.
