Drinking fountain. The word is predominantly used in parts of the upper Midwest, Rhode Island, Australia, and other scattered areas of New England. It is said that in a couple of places that the usage may be related to the Wisconsin-based manufacturer, Kohler, which marketed a fountain under the Bubbler name around 1914.

Within New England, "bubbla" is used most in the State of Rhode Island, but because of the state's close proximity to Mass, many residents of Mass may also be familiar with the term.
Student: Yo miss, let me get a drink from the bubbler real quick.

Used for smoking marijuana. Best way to describe it is as a bong and a bowl combined. You put water into it to filter out the smoke. Great for if you need something that gives a great hit and needs to be able to be taken out of the house without anyone seeing.
Yo you wanna toke in my woods today?

Should i bring my bong?

Na i got a bubbler so i can sneak it out in my pocket. Just bring some water for it though.

Alright cool

A mini-bong. It hits hard and fast so watch it! It bubbles when you toke.
Man...When I hit that bubbler I was all over the place it came so hard!

A bubbler is a common term used mainly in the Midwest region of the United States, referring to drinking fountains.
I believe that the slang became popular due to the creation of a drinking fountain that bubbled water out in a different manner than a traditional drinking fountain, although I do not know exactly which way this was.
It may be nothing, but the name Ford comes into my mind when I say this.

Wisconsin citizens' use of this word, and other abnormal slangs led to a study into how Wisconsinites speak in 2005 or 06.
Student- "Can I go get a drink from the bubbler?"
StudentTeacherFromOutOfState- "What? You don't drink bubbles..."
Student- "No, I mean the drinking fountain!"

A piece used for smoking the good 'ol green. Similar to a bong except it's commonly smaller and does not have a removable slider.

When you want to clear your hit with a bong, you remove the slider, with a bubbler, you just let go of a hole in the side of the piece called a shottie.

It's basically like a bong and a bowl fucked and had a baby.
Guy 1: Yo man, nice bong!

Guy 2: Nah, ya dipshit, this here's a bubbler!
