  1. I tried plenty of chat in East Africa, don't like the look of betel nut though, saw people chewing it in Burma but wasn't tempted.

  2. There s another south eastern drug mostly elderly people love it but it’s bad for your gums it’s call gua you have it with paan

  3. In myanmar is not like that myanmar only chew the idk it is like Leaves im from myanmar and i dont chew

  4. I live in China, Hainan Island, where LOADS of the local people chew betel nuts all day every day. I tried it a couple times, was left disappointed each time. Didnt really feel anything

  5. I did try one from a PNG market stall in Cairns, Australia – I even accidentally swallowed some! At least it provided the shop owners some entertainment by watching a newbie trying it for the first time…

  6. Typical Jew. Always change laws to what they don't like or can't do. Passing judgement on Natives lik,e a MF at 2:00 minutes.
