Curious about this--anyone know if specific herbs are used in pipes or stuffed into reeds or rolled into cigarettes? Narcotic or otherwise.

Anything that isn't poisonous. Your in a magical world with magical plants, get creative. At least 6/10 combinations will probably make you higher than MT Everest.

Oh, it's not the creativity I'd have a problem with ;) I just like to research before I write, so I don't end up doing something completely lore-breaking. Hence why I wondered if there was anything specific mentioned in the various books found in-game that I hadn't yet stumbled on, or anything official the devs have put out as canon.

Here is a list of alchemy reagents in ESO.
Columbine, dragonthron, or maybe lady's smock?

I also recommend looking up the contraband items in ESO. The Devs did a good job at slipping in little pieces of lore and everyday life in the contraband pieces like snuffboxes or incense boxes. But using alchemy reagents is a great way to go too!

Funnily enough, I remember an extensive reddit thread series on smoking and it's pipes in different cultures in Tamriel. I dont know if it was just people spittballing so called 'custom lore' but it was very enlightening. Funnily enough, it stated Cannibis existed, but was the most sacred holy substance to the redguards that smoking it would get you executed if you were not a priest of ruptga.

However, we dont really have anything concrete. We know they smoke. We dunno what they smoke. Get creative.
