Are you planning to reuse "scale" anywhere else? If not, your code could
just be

summ phi if x==1, mean
gen effect = _b[x]*r(mean)

BTW, where does the "_result" syntax come from? Even -hsearch _result-
struggles to come up with any good matches. This code does still work under
Stata 11, even without changing the -version-:

sysuse auto, clear
su mp
di _result(3)

Sorry, here a correction on the code

x is binary and it is the variable of interest in a causal model

tobit y x a b, ll(0)
predict phi, pr(0,.)
summ phi if x==1
scalar define scale = _result(3)
gen effect = _b[x]*scale
