Encyclopedia > Dugout (smoking)

A dugout, sometimes called a one-hitter, "chillum", Straight-shooter, Bomber, bat, batty a oney (pronounced one-knee), a pinchey, or a "tote a smoke," pinger(because it makes a "ping" when you open it), is a device used to facilitate discreet personal use of marijuana. A dried flowered bud of the Cannabis sativa plant. ...

The dugout is a rectangular (or sometimes cylindrical) wooden object with two compartments. The larger compartment stores the marijuana and a cylindrical compartment is used to store the pipe used to smoke the marijuana. Metal Metal pipes are more generally associated with cannabis and other drugs than tobacco use. ...

The special pipe which the hitter-box stores is often called a bat, one-hitter, or simply hitter. It closely resembles a cigarette in size and appearance. It may be painted gold/yellow on the stem and white down the length to mimick the coloring of a cigarette. Metal, ceramic, or glass in construction, it has a shallow recess into which the marijuana is loaded. A narrow artery, through which the smoke from the marijuana is channeled, extends from the recess to the opposite end of the pipe. A smoking symbol. ... A smoking symbol. ...

The dugout has a swiveling door which caps the two compartments. A spring at the bottom of the cylindrical compartment pushes the end of the pipe out of the box when the door is opened so that it can be extracted from the box. The sharp edge of the recessed end of the pipe allows the pipe to be loaded by burrowing it into the marijuana compartment. The marijuana can then be smoked by lighting it with a flame as one would light a tobacco cigarette. Often the metal of a lighter is held in front of the pipe to reflect the light emitted from the burning marijuana, allowing the user to monitor the burn while inhaling the smoke.

The dugout and bat metaphor alludes to the athletic sport baseball. This is an elaborate metaphor which can be easily explained. The pipe is often called a one-hitter because the recess holds only enough marijuana for one hit, the term used for a single inhalation of marijuana. Baseball bats are used to hit baseballs, and one-hitter pipe is cylindrical in shape like a baseball bat. Additionally, because to load the pipe, it is burrowed, or dug, into the marijuana compartment, this explains the term dugout—the marijuana is dug out of the container. In baseball, the dugout is the box in which the players sit when not on the playing field. In this context, it is the box in which the marijuana sits.

To further the baseball metaphor, the one hitter pipe or bat is also called a pinch hitter, because it loads just a pinch at a time. While the primary use may be for marijuana, a dugout system can also be used for smoking tobacco. It is sometimes marketed under the name "Tobacco Taster".

Because the process of smoking marijuana with such a device so closely resembles the process of smoking a cigarette, it is often applied when the user wishes to smoke marijuana in public. The ease and speed with which the process is able to be performed makes it an ideal way in which to smoke marijuana while out in public.
