I am a parent in Nutley, NJ. I was astonished today when I walked into the Nutley Newstand on Franklin Ave. This store is less than a block away from the High School and Middle School.I noticed that the owner sells Crack Pipes there. Google "Crack Pipe Rose" to understand what I am getting at. These are glass pipes with a rose in them. Crack addicts by them, remove the rose and smoke their drugs in them. If you are unfortunate to get caught by a police officer with a pipe without the rose, you can be charged with possession of drug paraphanalia. I have worked in the criminal justice system for many years. Now I perform work in high drug areas of Passaic and Essex County. I see what these drugs do to people. Many get hooked as young teenagers. The Nutley Newstand attracts a lot of school children. For these children to be exposed to this garbage is a sin. Also, rest assure, a store that sells these crack pipes attracts the people that use them. Do you want your children around these people. It is the owners right to sell them. However there is something called social responsibilility. These crack pipes serve no real purpose except for someone to use to smoke crack. I had a discussion with the owner Mahule. He is arrogant and compares crack pipes with condoms.We all work hard to raise our children properly. But with social pressures the way they are it is difficult. Do we really need crack pipes sold in our neighborhoods. I have been to many stores in Nutley. The Nutley Newstand is the only store I see with this garbage. Obviously the owner does not care. He just wants to make a dollar and does not care what he may expose our children to. I will purchase my lottery tickets, soda and chips somewhere else. I hope you do too. One should not patronize a business that sells stuff like this. Think about this before your lovely child gets on the wrong course and becomes a shell of a lovely child. We do not need businesses like The Nutley Newstand in our fine neighborhood.
