> are betal nuts legal? if so where can I get some?

betal nut is legal, in fact here in Hawaii many people have it in their front yards, both for the "buzz" and as an ornamental plant. look for the nuts that are light-green - red is too ripe. some wrap it in a tabaco leaf with lime {the mineral not the lime fruit} not only is that not needed, but it hell on your teeth. most people that use it with lime have the worst teeth in the world! w/lime it does work faster and more intense. hope this helped
