Lho-Sticks are a common form of recreational drug found among the population of the Imperium of Man similar to ancient cigarettes. Lho-sticks are common with Astra Militarum troopers and many menial workers across the galaxy. Each rolled paper tube contains a scented, mildly narcotic (and addictive) plant-derived substance, which is then lit, and the resulting smoke is inhaled through the tube.


A Lho-Stub is a slightly different version of a Lho-Stick that is much longer and thicker, similar to an ancient Terran cigar. Lord Castellan Ursarkar E. Creed of Cadia was known to smoke Lho-Stubs.
