Hello. I don't know if you mean by being around the smoke or by eating some of it. In either case, of couse, it could be very harmful to them. Obviously they could be poisoned if they ingest any of it, just the same as with any tobacco product. None of our pets should be exposed to smoke of any kind either. It's too harsh for their delicate respiratory systems. Either kind of exposure could be fatal to them. If you are going to smoke it, or any any other substance, please don't do it in the same room with them. And by all means, do not let them have access to any they might eat. I hope this answers the question. If not, just let me know. Patricia
