Archaic spelling of bong, also known as a water pipe, used for smoking various herbs. Today in the US and and around the world, bhongs/bongs are used most frequently to smoke marijuana. A bhong is somewhat similar in function, and identical in purpose, to a pipe or chillum. I suspect that Bhong's spelling comes from a Hindu word for pipe. The spelling "bhong" seems to be used more frequently in places like France, as opposed to the US, as far as I can tell.

Somewhat redundantly, a US Military web site says: swat: A draw of marijuana smoke from a bhong water pipe.
