fumare interdictum

fumare interdictum
fumare = to smoke
interdictum = forbidden

Because the tabacco-plant (Nicotiana tabaccum)was imported in Europe after 1492, the ancient Roman didn't know it. So "fumare" means to smoke whatever, not neccessarely tobacco.
To be more precise you may say:

fumare nicotianam interdictum

have a good time :)))
