bidi

(bē′dē) [Hindi bīdī, a compound in betel leaf]
A hand-rolled, often flavored cigarette imported from India or Southeast Asia. It is popular with young smokers but has a higher nicotine and tar content than most commercially available cigarettes in the U.S. Like other brands of tobacco in the U.S., it causes cancers, an increased risk of fetal death during pregnancy, heart disease, peripheral vascular disease, chronic obstructive lung disease, and genetic mutations.
