clove cigarette, snuff, betel

English and Spanish
Good Morning Everyone,
I am translating the offenses which may cause a student to be recommended for expulsion according to California Education Code.
Although I am able to translate and conjugate without a problem, these terms I am still not familiar with and have to to with illegal substances.
I apologize for not attempting to give an equivalent in Spanish but the literal translation I am sure will simply not work, i.e. clove cigarette = cigarrillo de trébol/clavo. I know there must be a different term for these controlled substances in their various forms. If any of you is familiar with their names in Spanish, I will be greatful to hear their translation to español.

    Betel nut is an intoxicant sometimes used by people of Asian Indian heritage. I don't think there is an American or Spanish word for it. Rapé is a word used for snuff: a powdered tobacco that is snorted through the nose.
