    Are there any cooking herbs or spices in which can be smoked that may cause some type of reaction to the body.

    Well i just looke d alittle deeper into the net and i found:

    Tobacco substitutes-

    Bearberry leaves (Uva-ursi)
    Buckbean leaves (Menyanthes trifoliata)
    Chervil leaves (choerophyllum sativum)
    Coltsfoot leaves (Tussilago farfara)
    Corn Silk (Stigneta maidis)
    Dittany leaves (Cunila mariana)
    Eyebright leaves (Euphrasia officinalis)
    Life everlasting leaves (Antennaria dioicia)
    Marjoram leaves (Origanum marjorana)
    Mullien leaves (Verbascum thaspus; said to give relief from asthma.)
    Raspberry leaves (Rubus strigosus)
    Rosemary leaves (Rosmarinus officinals; mixed w/ coltsfoot to relieve asthma
    Sage leaves (Salvia officinalis; said to give relief from asthma.)
    Wood betony leaves (Betonica officinalis)
    Yerba santa (Eriodictyon californicum)

    Intoxicating herbs and spices-

    Boldo leaves (rather harsh on the throat)
    Broom tops (be careful with these; they can be dangerous)
    Catnip leaves
    Damiana leaves
    Ginseng leaves
    Hydrocotyle asiatica minor (stimulant in small doses, but narcotic in large) Lobelia leaves (herbalists use these in asthma preparations; I wouldnt recommend them because, like broom tops, they can be dangerous.)
    Passionflower leaves
    Poppyheads and leaves (if they're whit poppies, then they're opium and very illegal; however, legal red poppies also have a mild effect)
    Wild lettuce juice (also known as lettuce opium; need i say more?)
    Yarrow leaves
    This concludes this excerpt. I hope it proves useful or interesting to you.

    although many of these have already been mentioned on this site im sure there are others out there in which are more common to the house hold in which can be used to intoxicate.
