Bidis are flavored cigarettes that originate from India, but are popular in the United States as well. You can find Bidis in flavors such as Vanilla, Strawberry, or even black licorice which are rolled in a leaf and tied at each end.
According to the United States Center for Disease Control, bidis are actually more harmful to a smoker's health than a regular cigarette is. The biggest reason for this is because a bidi has no filter, offering more than 2 times the tar and nicotine a regular cigarette offers every time you take a drag.
