Yeah I don't think that will hurt if you want to. You might end up with powder though. That's not so good for smoking... but if you got real fancy you could make tobacco paper out of the dust/stems like commercial tobbaccy producers and use it to roll cigarettes or fill out a blend. No idea what they bind it with.

I've been stripping out the larger stems from my baccy and tossin' em. I don't need em but I've always wondered if I could make reconstituted leaf paper...

It might be a worthwhile idea to save all stems... toss 'em aside into buckets, or bags... then make some baccy tea next year, combined with a few other choice ingredients, to try as an insect deterrent???
