One possible way is to expand your data in a list that contains for each
pair as many element of the first entry as indicated by the second
element of each pair.

Needs["Histograms`"]
data = {{30.5, 20}, {2.6, 120}, {4.2, 134}, {5.3, 60}, {15.8, 67}};
Histogram[Flatten[ConstantArray[#[[1]], #[[2]]] & /@ data]]
