Wait now this right here is past ridiculous!
Long Island police are investigating after a trio of crack pipe vending machines — yes, crack pipe vending machines — disguised as pen dispensers appeared in front of shopping centers in the town of Brookhaven.
Two of the three machines – which are blue and feature the word ‘PENS’ written across the front – have been seized and turned over to Suffolk County Police for investigation.
The third is currently sitting on private property and therefore cannot be removed without the owner’s permission, though officials said they have reached out and hope to turn the machine over to law enforcement soon.
“You think you’ve heard of everything. I continue to be surprised by some of the audacity of those that would break the law in promoting drugs and drug paraphernalia,” Supervisor Ed Romaine said at a press conference.
