Default Rational scale to assess the harm of drugs

I found it iteresting to see where tobacco falls, click the image for the always true wiki info (<---Sarcasm).
My opinion is tobacco is only a drug if abused (Same with alchohol), I do not consider cigars a tobacco abuse.
I am sure these results where based on cigarette tobacco, another example of how cigars get a bad image.

I dont consider tobacco as a drug but I without a doubt do consider nicotine a drug.

Everything in moderation. I think that as long as you don't smoke cigars like you would with cigarrettes, the health risk is minimal.

A rational scale to assess the harm of drugs. Data source is the March 24, 2007 article: Nutt, David, Leslie A King, William Saulsbury, Colin Blakemore. "Development of a rational scale to assess the harm of drugs of potential misuse"
That makes the graph make a lot more sense.

I'm kind of surprised where the physical harm number falls. It never took me long to feel the effects of my cigarette smoking.

If I recall correctly, it's a plant where people chew the leaves. Kind of like tobacco, but the leaves are chewed fresh.
