Actually, I have seen Herb smoked with tobacco in the Mother Land, europe, the Caribbean and usa. Though anything which is in its purest form (Ital) is better, tobacco has been traditionaly smoked/used by our ancestors. Even the Native American has used tobacco ceremoniously, inna chalice form (peace pipe), both with Herb, and with tobacco.
It is the westernized (history and usage of)and chemicalized tobacco which is poisonous. I cant see mixing Herb with nicotene, and expecting that to lift InI to higher consciousness.
I have seen many elders from Jamaica (and other parts) smoke Herb with "frontoe" leaf, or "donkey rope", blending both inna dem chalice/spliff. This tobacco is used in its purest Ital form.
Everything has its proper usage, as it has potential to be abused.
Give thanks for the reasonings.
