Bongs and Water-Pipes

Similar to hookahs, bongs are an air-tight smoking device that bubbles smoke through water, reducing irritation to the airways by absorbing heavier particles that would be otherwise inhaled. Bongs are generally blown from glass, but they can also be ceramic, stone or constructed from household products.

They can range in price — from $10 to $400 — and size — from several inches to several feet. Some retailers avoid the use of the term "bong" as the word itself suggests the intent to use marijuana, and label the products "for tobacco use only."
