"Unlike ciggies, gutkha is not harmful for others around you"

They basically said that its harmful to you. AFAIK gutkha not only contains tobacco but also other chemicals which are known carcinogens.

Neither ciggies nor Guthka should be banned. It's up to the person, he has to make the decision. Why does the govt. get to decide!?Even alcohol is harmful.

gutkha ban IMO is a good thing yes it doesnt harm the people around but it is an enviromental hazzard!!!! comon i am sure every one has seen the famous REDDISH/ORANGE WALLs of india. I detest gutkha, the smell from it is horrible, the spitting is disgusting. I dont like cigarettes especially that minors can get their hands on it without a problem.

Even alcohol is harmful.
Cocaine and Heroin should also be unbanned?
