Whilst trying to find out more about "biri" cigarettes from India I found an FDA article banning the sale of 4 bidi cigarettes in the USA.
They seem to be the same as biri to me. Hopefully some one more knowledgeable than me can enlighten us as to the popularity etc. of these cigarettes. One of our Indian or Pakistani members might inform us.
The thing that caught my eye in the article was an announcement from the Schroeder Institute telling us that they do not want anything that is cheaply available to kids out there .
Is this why our inexpensive snuff gets such a hard time?
And no connection ,but why do expensive cigars have no warning on the bands, or pictures of rotten livers on expensive champagne and brandy bottles.
