Small businesses selling glassies, pipes and baggies is hardly a new thing, and has been called out by conservative parts of the media for years.

In late September, everyone’s favourite sensationalists A Current Affair published a hilarious report on a servo out West selling bongs.

Why the police chose to target this specific Newtown store on the weekend – or why they apparently had nothing better to do – is unclear.
