Explanation:
Марихуана может употребляться в разных видах, и именно в этом состоит суть вопроса. Ее можно жевать и глотать, курить (причем в виде сигарет или трубки восточного типа), заваривать итд итп.
Не употребляя сленга, который в данном контексте не слишком-то уместен, следовало бы написать:

Употребляли ли вы марихуану и если да, то в каком виде (сигареты, трубка, напиток, гашиш, гашишевое масло)?

Explanation:
"dur", "anasha", "travka"

some Russian colloquialisms for grass and pot, which in English are both colloquialisms for marijuana

"travka" is a diminutive for the word "grass" - трава (lawn or prarie grass)

Explanation:
That's not the translation I'm offering; the whole list is just synonyms of the same basic word марихуана. True, in Russian there are lots of jargon words for it but I believe they would sound out of place in a health survey questionnaire. The less slang words are марихуана and гашиш. So, basically there's no difference.
