Gutka

I hesitate to even write about this form of tobacco. Hailing from India, it is a sort of tobacco/Nutella-like mixture sold in small pockets to adults and children. Highly addictive, it is taken orally and is known to cause oral cancer.

I do not intend to preach here…as an adult, I think you should be able to consume whatever you like. However, this product is marketed and sold to children who purportedly develop cancer in high school. According to Wikipedia, some five million children under the age of fifteen are addicted to the substance.

Tobacco Gum

Nope, we are not talking about Nicorette or nicotine gum here. This oddity is actually tobacco mixed with gum, which the user chews on, releasing nicotine. Simple enough?

Summary

This list is not a complete list of tobacco products. There are still some left to discuss, which we will do in an upcoming issue, such as tobacco paste. I also opted to skip the explanation of what a cigar and cigarette is, because more than likely, you know what that is. And if you don’t, well, you probably can’t read anyway.

Once again, if you have tried any of these, drop us a line and let us know. We would love to hear you story.
