depending [In reply to] Can't Post

on what type of pipe tobacco you use it can have quite a hit to it. I had some for one of my pipes from brittain and it was quite strong, it had a wonderful flavor but for about five minutes I was kind of lost in my own back yard. Like others have said, pipe tobacco is not a ciggarett, and in fact has a good bit more nicotine in it. though it takes a good deal longer to get into your system as it has to be absorbed through your mouth and not into your lungs. The effects take longer, and last longer. But I have never equated pipe weed with Tobacco, as Tolkien was known tobacco user.

History [In reply to] Can't Post

It goes back to the sixties, when LotR was favorite reading for many of the hippies. I don't think any of them really thought pipe-weed was pot. But it certainly was hinted at in parodies like "Bored of the Rings", and so the idea stuck.

I think it's supposed to be funny.

It was the sixties [In reply to] Can't Post

He may not have said anything until the 70s.

I was no hippie myself (if anything I was a timid wannabe) and I read it in '67.

All my hippie friends were reading it then too. And I clearly recall a picture of Peter Tork of the Monkees, love beads and all, with a copy of The Hobbit that year.
