Default Lets try to use the right words

So, i was wondering if i could start changing to vocabulary of the people around here to use the right words in reference to the right things.

I mainly wanted to focus on the word shisha, or شيشة. It is the actual pipe, not the tobacco that goes in it. So i was wondering if we could refer to the stuff as tobacco, moassal, tombak, jurak, or whatever it may be.

What to call herbal shisha then? Crushed sugar cane.
