Tobacco was made for common consumption. Tobacco can used regularly, it be moderated, and used as part of sobriety. Tobacco is not a drug. Tobacco does not alter your consciousness and impairs reason like the illegitimate use of some drugs.

From what I've seen, tobacco is far far *far* more addictive than pot.  My mom stopped smoking pot when she was in her early twenties no problems, she stopped smoking cigarettes a few years later, and she told me it was the hardest thing she'd ever done.  In my, albeit limited, experience tobacco is a very difficult drug to use in moderation.

The sin isn't in the addiction, it's in the voluntary impairing of reason.  If some people don't seem to have their reason impaired when they're smoking marijuana 'in moderation', it doesn't mean their reason isn't impaired.  The fact that they use it at all shows a lack of good judgement. 

It's very easy to get over-confident and imagine that that little bit won't hurt, especially past the age of, say, 40, but sometimes life is long, and if a person has established the habit, at any age, what will they do when suddenly they're faced with some heavy trial?  One can't be too careful with this.  If you want to argue against the catechism, go ahead, but know what you're doing. 

Have you ever smoked marijuana? I don't think it impairs your reason in the least. Unless you consider relaxation and time dilation reason-impairing. Plus, guitar music sounds cool. That's about it.
