Stolen Pipes of Organ May Produce Illicit Air

Officials at the University of Miami think that a student is stealing pipes from the organ at the Episcopal chapel to use as marijuana-smoking ‘bongs.’

Fourteen of the pipes, valued at $600 and ranging in length up to three and a half feet have been taken since the beginning of class.

“It’s actually a possibility,” said David Wike, campus security director. “Some guy will get a crazy idea and do something like that.”

He said bongs and other marijuana paraphenalia were outlawed in dormitories this year.
