Well, it looks to me more like a chain message (like tose in emails) sent by a 
human to all his contacts. Normal spam messages try to sell viagra, normal 
spim messages try to impersonate an attractive person in order to get you 
joining websites. This message allerts you on the dangers of drugs.

It is an unwanted message, but it seems to me to have been manually sent.

>Copy this ON WALLS OF THEIR FRIENDS
>Subject: smoking blends

This looks like the source of the message is a facebook-like website.

PS: I had reveived SPIM messages through MSN transports.
