    According to Hinduism, smoking is considered as "Tamo Guna" or "Tamsik Pravritti" which means that it is a very lowly act.

    While not completely prohibited in Hinduism, the use of tobacco is not considered good and is considered to be a sign of intoxication. Though Rajas and Maharajas in earlier days were seen consuming tobaccos and using items like hookahs for relaxation, it is ridiculed by the Hindu religion.

    I few days back commented on some post talking about hash smoking.
    Personally I smoke hash occasionally and i love it hence won't be right person to comment on it.
    As long as smoking doesn't hurt anyone it shouldn't matter to any religion.

    Well i would support ignorant as there is not bidding when it comes to persons will as long as it doesn't hurt society.
    But personally I wouldn't support or encourage anyone to start smoking or continue smoking.

    Very right. Smoking should not have anything to do with a religion per say. Like alcohol, smoking is also hazardous for the human body and should be consumed in limited quantity to avoid intoxication.
