Jason Harris founded Jerome Baker Designs in the 1990s, and it quickly became a leading maker of glass pipes. JBD won the 1996 High Times Cannabis Cup “Best Product” and Second Place for Best Booth. The company grew from $350,000 a year to $4 million per year seemingly overnight. It developed 21 different styles of bongs for celebrities and rock stars of the late 1990s and early 2000s. In 2003, however, Jason was arrested in Operation Pipe Dreams, along with Tommy Chong and 55 others. JBD had 70 employees at the time. With legalization sweeping the nation, Jason built JBD back into a powerhouse and made a statement by blowing the largest bong in the world.
