What Is A Glass Rose
What is a love rose glass?
Colloquially referred to as a methoscope, a love rose consists of a glass tube with a paper or plastic rose inside of it, and a bit of cork or foil on the ends to keep the rose from falling out.
Why is there a rose in a pipe?
The real attraction is the four-inch-long tube that holds the flower. It’s a thinly disguised crack pipe, law enforcement officials say. Convenience stores, liquor stores and gas stations in crack-infested neighborhoods in the Washington area sell what the street calls "rosebuds" or "stems" for $1 to $2.
