I've heard the phrase 'toasting tobacco' used quite a lot and understand it to mean heating a cigarette with a lighter but without burning it.
Why do you do this???
I gave up tobacco about 5 years ago now but I used to do that when I was about 15 to make a 'mix' for a bucket or bong made with hash.
The thought of actually doing this now really doesnt agree with me but the procedure at the time was to take the cigarrette and toast it until the tobacco is crispy (if you want you can wrap the cigarrette in tin foil to stop the paper burning) then dust it up using you fingers. Then dust about an equal amount of hash on top then mix it all together really well with your fingers and the mix is ready for the bucket/bong/waterfall.
Some people may give their cigarrette a quick toasting just before rolling a joint with it.
I would not recommend doing this as it is not good for your lungs at all, I only did this years ago when I didnt know any better, now I smoke pure.
I was in the basement of Bob's several years ago, engaging in a pow wow with 2 guys from Japan. The one with a mean afro (real) would expel the contents of a Lucky Strike onto the table, run his lighter over it for several minutes, then mix it up with ground bud or hash and proceeded to roll a nice tulip. It still tasted like weed and tobacco to me, but the scene was impressive, the joints burnt even and forever.
