Girls That Chew

We’re not promoting anyone chewing tobacco. They say that stuff’ll kill you and they’re probably right.

But we’re not going to condemn the activity, especially among women.

Indeed, women who use smokeless tobacco are an increasingly rare breed. According to information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, just 1 in every 100 women chew tobacco or use snuff. Snuff. Compare that with the 7 in every 100 men in the US who use it.
