Police seized thousands of marijuana water pipes in a raid on a factory in the North earlier this week. Spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said police entered the building in Haifa this week and confiscated 15,000 bongs that were planned for distribution. He said the factory's 60-year-old owner was arrested. Pipes and other drug paraphernalia are a common sight at kiosks, but Rosenfeld said Thursday that these items were banned a few weeks ago and police are cracking down. The majority of marijuana is smuggled into Israel by Bedouin across the porous border with Egypt. The rest comes from Gaza and Lebanon, though these routes are less common due to recent hostilities.
