No marja allows smoking meanwhile you're fasting.

That's not true.

There are at least two marja who said that smoking does not invalidate fasting.

Like Sayyid Hosseini Nassab:

2. does it invalidate Fasting?

Answer:

1. Smoking cigarette is not Haram, but better is to be avoided.

2. Smoking cigarette does not invalidate Fasting.

Sayyid Fadlullah:

Q: Does Smoking break the fast?

A: Cigarette Smoking, according to us, is prohibited (like Alcohol is) in the month of Ramadan - day and night - , and in any other month. This is on one hand. On the other hand, smoking leads to the exposure of the month’s (Ramadan) sanctity. Therefore, our followers (moqallidin) should absolutely refrain from smoking. However, our opinion is that smoke, by nature, does not lead to the breaking of one’s fast.

In a related context, and with regard to his Fatwa in which he deemed that smoking does not break one’s fasting, His Eminence justified this Fatwa in an inquiry he once answered, saying that this can be justified on the following bases: first, what breaks one’s fasting are the drinks and foods, and smoking is neither of the two; second: it is narrated that when one of the Imams of Ahl El-Beit (a.s.) was asked about a fasting man who burnt certain kinds of branches to inhale their smoke, the Imam said that his fasting was valid. Thus, many religious scholars adopt precaution when they say that smoking breaks the fast, while we see that there is no need for precaution in this case… But we believe that one should not smoke while fasting because we deem smoking in general and specifically in the month of Ramadan forbidden for it offends the act of fasting and violates the sanctity of this blessed month.

But other ( most marja) adopt precaution, like Sayyid Sistani:

1615. As an obligatory precaution, a person who is observing fasts, should not allow the smoke of cigarettes, tobacco, and other similar things to reach his throat

my marja' is Ayatullah Al-Uzhma Sayyid A'li Khamenei .. He said Ihtiyaht wujubi better to avoid it .. but ihtiyaht wujubi means his followers can follow ruling of other marja' if they feel it hard on his followers , rights ... ?

Objectionable........ Anything prohibited cannot be allowed or consumption of any prohibited substance can lead to invalidation of the fast.

According to who and what?

There are many sins which would not invalidate a persons fast; backbiting, lying (other than attributing a lie to Allah and the infallible guides), looking at non-mahram with lust (in and of itself) etc.

The Sayyid believes that cigarette smoke is not thick enough to invalidate the fast. Smoking being haraam or not is a matter of specifying the mawdhu' which many believe in this case is the duty of the mukhalaf, so his muqalideen do not have to listen to his opinion about smoking if they believe it is not harmful.

al-Sistani:

 

1615 - احتياط واجب آن است كه روزه دار دود سيگار و تنباكو و مانند اينها را هم به حلق نرساند.
Obligatory precaution for person who is fasting not to smoke cigarettes and tabacco, and similar things that can reach the throat while fasting
Source: al-Sistani, Tawdeeh al-Masaa'il (in Farsi), ruling # 1615  http://www.najaf.org/persian/book/1/s19.html
 
 
al-Khamenei:
 
بنابر احتیاط واجب جایز نیست در حال روزه سیگار کشیده شود

س 760: حکم استعمال دخانيات مانند سيگار در حال روزه چيست؟
ج: احتياط واجب آن است که روزه‏دار از دودهاى انواع دخانيات و نيز مواد مخدّرى که از راه بينى يا زير زبان جذب مى‏شود خوددارى کند. 
 Question 760: Hukm for using tabacco such as Cigarrets during fasting?
Answer: It is an obligatory precaution for the one who is fasting that he should avoid the smoke of tabacco, and the types of drugs that are absorbed through the nose or swallowed by the tongue. 
 
 
 
 
Makarem al-Shirazi:
 
مسأله 1362ـ احتياط واجب آن است كه روزه دار از كشيدن سيگار و تنباكو و ساير دخانيات پرهيز كند و بخار غليظ نيز به حلق نرساند، ولى رفتن به حمّام اشكال ندارد، هرچند فضاى حمّام را بخار گرفته باشد
Issue 1362: It is an obligatory precaution for the one who is fasting to avoid cigarettes, tabacco, and other tabacco products, and also not to have the thick smoke reach the throat, although it is no problem for you to go to the hamaam (bathhouse), because the steam from the environment of the hamaam is okay

Musa al-Zanjani:
 
مسأله 1614- در ماه مبارك رمضان سيگار كشيدن و استعمال ساير دخانيات به صورت آشكار به گونه‌اى كه بى‌احترامى به روزه بشمار آيد جايز نيست، بلكه بنابر احتياط در غير اين صورت نيز استفاده نشود و چنانچه روزه‌دار در ماه رمضان از دخانيات استفاده كند، بنابر احتياط در بقيۀ روز از كارهايى كه روزه را باطل مى‌كند‌ خوددارى نمايد و روزه آن روز را نيز قضا كند.
Issue 1614: During the blessed month of Ramadan, smoking cigarrettes and other tabacco products openly that it can be perceived as a way of disrespecting the fast is impermissible, and if it isn't seen as disrespectful, it is by obligatory precaution that he should avoid smoking during the month of ramadan, and the fasting person should stay away from things which make his fast baatil, and he should make up his fast

I stumbled upon this and it reminded me of this thread. I thought I would post it.

 

Kamaal al-Haydari:

 

لتدّخين في نهار شهر رمضان - 29479

المسألة :هل يجوز التدّخين في نهار شهر رمضان للمدّخنين؟
الــجواب :نحن نرى مفطرية التدخين للصيام على الاحوط وجوباً.
29479 - Smoking during the day in the month of Ramadan
Question: It is permissible for a smoker to smoke during the day in the month of Ramadan?
Answer: We view smoking when fasting as a muftariyyah (act which breaks your fast) upon Ihtiyat al-Wajib

1 hour ago, Mohammed Z said:

Does smoking marijuana (weed) invalidate fasting? If a person becomes high from smoking it, are his fasts and prayers not accepted for 40 days just like drinking alcohol?

Smoking anything invalidates a fast, even if for medical reasons. 

Intoxicants are haram and to knowingly consume them is a sin, but I don't know about the 40 days thing.
