To make a pipe from a soda can, first rinse the can out with clean water and let it dry. Once the can has dried, use your thumb to make a small indentation on the side of the can. Next, punch several small holes close together in the base of the indentation with a needle, pin, or pen. Use a pen to make a larger hole somewhere else on the side of the can, which you’ll cover with your thumb while you smoke. Sand the area around the indentation to remove any chemicals that may be vaporized while you smoke. When you’re ready to smoke, place your material on the indentation, cover the large hole with your finger, and inhale through the mouth of the can to fill it with smoke. Release your finger when you’re ready to inhale the smoke. Remember that heating aluminum to high temperatures is linked with serious health risks, so it would be safer to build a pipe out of other easily available household items, like an apple or a potato.
