What are the effects of smoking red raspberry tea?

What are the effects of smoking red raspberry tea?

Why do you want to?: There are no data I can find, mainly because nobody has thought to smoke it, and I would be uncertain as to why you would want to?

38 weeks prg. 3 cm, 50% effaced. Would castor oil or raspberry leaf tea make my contractions closer together? Still very very far apart.
