pipe smoking

is there anything to suggest that the 'weed' smoked by hobbits isnt more like cannabis than tobacco? looking at the film as tho gandalf and bilbo were potheads gives it a new dimension.

another point is that the smoking habit seems to have acquired a rather sexist demographic. i'm sure women in history have smoked pipes. not so in hobbiton.

i just noticed that word 'habit', certainly another credible etymology for the word hobbit given their very conservative way of life.
