Most places the local authorities get upset if you use these on stage,
but there are shows where you need them. Some substitutes from
r.a.t.stagecraft:
   * Herbal cigarettes, such as 'Herbal Gold' ("pleasant, incense-like
     aroma reminiscent of a Grateful Dead concert")
   * Tobaccoless cigarettes, such as 'Honey Rose' or 'Kickum'
   * Joints rolled from catnip (or catnip tea) ("same plant group as
     marijuana, so realistic smell; didn't make the actors sick")
   * Ginseng cigarettes.
   * Oregano (?)
   * Nettle tea mixed with some mild tobacco ("It was so realistic the
     narcotics division came backstage after the show...")

Make sure your actor knows how to roll a spliff. If they don't know how,
get one of the rest of the cast to show them. Someone will know. A
significant part of the audience knows exactly how to roll a spliff, so
you want to ensure the show looks realistic to them.
