But the first thing I thought of is the glue in the papers, especially when they lick it after they roll it.....

Celiac, collagenous colitis, hypothyroidism

I agree that the rolling papers would be more worrysome than the smoking material itself. Perhaps they should try glass or metal.
I got my information from these two sites-

Not to start a fight, but why is that? Please don't tell me that you don't think a pot-smoker would QUIT if they had to?
I think that if they are regularly smoking pot, the question as to whether it's gluten-free or not is kind of irrelevant . . .
Some people drink, some people smoke, some people do neither. Let's not judge based on what people put into their body, legal or not.

Grr, again, I don't mean to start a fight, but I can't, for the life of me, think of why a pot-smoker WOULDN'T stop if they were at risk of ingesting gluten. Obviously I'm biased, but I wouldn't hesitate to stop smoking if gluten was involved in smoking. The point is not whether pot is bad for you (it's relatively GOOD for you compared to alcohol!), the point is whether it's gluten-free.
Wheat is a grass, too. The seed is a grain. The glue on the papers might have gluten in it. Honestly, if they are smoking it, I don't think they care that much!

Too bad more people don't agree...if they did, perhaps Bush wouldn't have won today....
.....not to judge people by what they do in their private lives if it's not infringing on anyone else.
Whoops, no politics allowed!
