Dissolvable • The tobacco companies are responding by introducing new smokeless and spit-less tobacco products that bypass restrictions on smoking. R. J. Reynolds has been test marketing several dissoluble tobacco products: sticks, orbs and strips. The products are made of finely milled tobacco held together with food grade binders. Tobacco sticks resemble toothpicks and will dissolve within 10 minutes when placed in the mouth.
Clove Cigarettes • Clove cigarettes are not the cigarette pick in the majority of smokers in America. It tends to be the occasional cigarette to many. Even still it does not excuse the amount of underage smokers of the cigarette.
Kreteks • Cigarettes made with a blend of tobacco, cloves and other flavors. • Today, kretek manufacturers directly employ over 180,000 people in Indonesia and an additional 10 million indirectly.
Hookah • Hookah smoking is not safer than cigarette smoking. Also known as narghile, shisha and goza, a hookah is a water pipe with a smoke chamber, a bowl, a pipe and a hose. Specially made tobacco is heated, and the smoke passes through water and is then drawn through a rubber hose to a mouthpiece.
