Definition: The hookah is a traditionally Indian smoking device that has a centralized bowl with many tubes protruding from it. It is designed so that more than one individual may hit the bowl at the same time. There are such thing are hookah bars, where friends can sit and smoke hookah tobacco together, but putting marijuana in such ‘rented’ hookahs may be frowned upon. Depending on where you are, it could also get you arrested. Putting marijuana in your own personal hookah, however, allows a communal smoking experience.
