Snuff Inhalator

A snuff inhalator is a device that functions to administer a dose of snuff tobacco or similarly powdered substance to the nose. Snuff inhalators are constructed variously, but fundamentally include a powder reservoir, a chamber, and an inhalation port. Relevant patent citations suggest that snuff inhalators originated in the 1990s as modifications of functionally similar medical devices.
