That's a new one. I would question your friend further to see where he's getting his information.  The "nicotine poisoning"
hypothesis is unlikely--given that chewing tobacoo is similar to cigarettes in nicotine content--and you stick that in your
mouth to be efficiently taken up by the bloodstream.  Other toxic substances found in cigarettes take prolonged doses in order to exert
their effect.
