No, it's technically classified as a psychedelic even though many scientists believe it should be in its own class. With that said, the act of smoking stimulates the heart and blood stream so even though it may seem like it slows you down, it may be stimulating your system.

Yes. Depressant drugs do not necessarily make you feel depressed. Rather, they slow down the central nervous system and the messages going to and from the brain to the body.
