A tobacco smoker, a drug addict?

When people hear expressions like Bale, Doobie, Doobee, Doob, Dube, Finger Lid, Grass Brownies, Loaf, and Number (for Marijuana) or California Cornflakes, Dream, Double Bubble, Florida Snow, Gift-Of-The-Sun, Foo-Foo Dust (for Cocaine) or Aunt Hazel, Al Capone, Batman, Bart Simpson, Big Harry, Charley (for Heroin), either in their everyday life or in the movies they know that all these words are connected with substances that are addictive and deadly.

The funny thing is that nicotine, which is one of the most addictive (you only need one puff to get addicted) and deadliest (it kills more people yearly than all the rest of the illegal drugs combined) doesn’t have any slang names.

A smoker and specifically a tobacco smoker is another name for a nicotine drug addict. The reason that people until today do not realize that and make the connection is I think because of three reasons.
