It was discovered in 6000 BC and smoked 5000 years later by the Mayans. The Mayans chewed the plant to curb their appetite during the longer hikes. Evidence that proofs existence of smoking being practiced is a pictorial of Guatemala smoking at around 800 AD. Europeans began smoking when Caribbean natives introduced to Columbus.

Smoking was practiced via pipes by the first European smokers, which later advanced to snuffing. Paper rolled cigars were majorly concentrated in the 20th century and were invented by the Turkish.
