There is one thing more about these hobbits of old that must be mentioned: they smoked tobacco through pipes of clay or wood. A great deal of mystery surrounds the origin of this peculiar custom...
Okay, they smoked tobacco, but they also smoked pipeweed.

I think pipeweed is weed. []

The Hobbits did live close to nature so it's very possibly to have discovered and used anything she could offer them, why not some kind of weed? Nobody can be sure if pipeweed was weed indeed (hey,it rimes) or some kind of tabacco like nowdays. Anyway this question is not a new one and I do have to mention that the very first Tolkien lovers were the hippies who found Tolkien very close to their dream of utopia, so can all these be irrelevant? I think not, and I am one of those how do belive that pipeweed gave to it's smokers far more satisfaction than the plein tabacco...

They wouldn't care about beer or wine-- but it would explain their chronic munchies []
