Thing is, there is a growing number of non-Muslims who use them too. In fact if you had been at the Minnesota Renaissance Festival. You would have seen that main number of folks using them were young college aged adults. Ones you would have thought were not into any sort of smoking even those hookahs. But many of these folks assume that there is no danger in using them.

http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2011/04/... Despite a growing number of cities instituting smoking bans across the country, hookah bars are cropping up everywhere -- from chic downtown cafes to locations near college campuses, where they've found a loyal customer base in young adults.

http://www.cdc.gov/tobacco/data_statistics/fa... Hookah smoking is typically practiced in groups, with the same mouthpiece passed from person to person.
Infectious diseases may be transmitted by sharing a hookah.

From what I can find out, hookahs were created to smoke pot in them. Who is to say that the folks using them are using tobacco or pot in them.

Agree. The least of our countries worries is whether or not people are smoking, tobacco, pot of cat dropping in their hookahs.
