"It looks like a straight shooter. It is a crack pipe."
Il s'agit d'une pipe à crack. Est-ce que "straight shooter" est un synonyme ?

bang "straight shooter"
Explanation:
ou simplement
Bang (ou bong -- comme en anglais-- ou bangh, dixit Wikipédia)
On peut également traduire par Pipe à eau , mais je pense qu'il vaut mieux un terme pour initiés, sinon l'explication qui suit ne se justifie pas.
