Is This Paraphernalia?

I already know my 18 year old has been smoking pot. I went into his room today and he has a bunch of rolled up newspapers. And I mean a lot!  2 milk crates of them, neatly rolled up and taped shut.  He also has pine bedding and a bunch of empty plastic pop bottles.  Some of the bottles have holes in them, I'm sure he uses them as a bong/water pipe.  The newspapers and pine bedding have me confused....nothing ever used in my wild days. I would come right out and ask him but he would probably lie.  I'm hoping it's not for anything hard core, the pot is bad enough. Anyone ever heard of such a thing?

Hi and welcome to the board. I don't really have any idea either but wanted to wish you luck. Do you have a plan of action to help your son?

I wish I had some advice to share with you but those seem like such odd items to associate with any kind of drug use. Could he be using them as fuel to start a fire? I really can't think of much else it could be. I hope you find a few answers soon. Hang in there.
