Ever heard about snus? No, its not a spelling mistake for snuff. Its a smokeless way of getting nicotine. Well, there is actually more to it than that... Basically it is loose tobacco packed in small bags (like tea bags), which is then placed in the mouth (usually under the top lip) to release nicotine. The porous bag causes the release of Nicotine which is then absorbed through the mucous membrane in the mouth, to give either an energy kick or a relaxing experience.
