In J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, it’s common knowledge that Gandalf the Grey is a fan of the Longbottom Leaf, which he merrily smokes with Bilbo before his 111th birthday. As a wizard, Gandalf has powers beyond the comprehension of most mortals, including the ability to appear whenever Bilbo breaks out his smoking pipes.
A Twitter user shared a GIF of the 1977 cartoon adaption of The Hobbit and it looks like Gandalf is visiting Bag End for one reason…

Excuse me, the Jackson movies include the line”Your love of the Halfling's leaf has clearly slowed your mind.”

Gandalf is also a fan of “Old Toby” in Peter Jackson’s adaption of the books:

Though there was some argument as to whether Jackson pushed it far enough:
There was a severe lack of pipeweed in Peter Jackson’s trilogies

All I really want is to have Ian McKellen smoking with a bunch of halflings for 3 movies each around 4 hrs long.

A wizard gets dank precisely when he means to get dank.

If Gandalf could have shared some Longbottom Leaf with the Balrog, things might have turned out differently…
Puff, puff, (none shall) pass.
