We, members of the CIPC, see a worldwide communion of pipe smokers that is bound together by a shared love for pipe-smoking, mutual respect and goodwill.
We envision a sociaty that respects the free choise and adult use of pipe tobacco. Our starting point is a world where governements act in good faith and integrity and have the political will and personal courage to express their values with the basic principle of personal freedom. This means that as a group we are united and strong in our beliefs, have understanding, patience, wisdom and enjoy the philosophical aspect of pipe-smoking.
We seek to promote pipe smoking as part of a lifestyle that can be thoroughly enjoyable to adults.
