rose stem
 n.— «George Scott, a business owner who represents the Upper Albany Merchants Association, said he and other leaders in Hartford’s North End also are trying to get merchants to stop selling drug paraphernalia such as the miniature glass cylinders containing decorative plastic roses, commonly called “rose stems,” that are used as crack pipes. “Rose stems” have been sold at gasoline stations and convenience stores throughout Hartford and at stores in suburban towns.» —“Energy Drink Has Enemies” by Tina A.
