No, smokeless tobacco does not contain fiberglass or any other additives meant to "tear or rip" the mucosa (lining of the mouth) to allow for nicotine to be absorbed into the bloodstream. Mucous membranes, like that which lines the mouth, are thin and meant to allow for substances to pass through them and into the bloodstream. Many medications, such as nitroglycerine for people with angina, are designed to be absorbed through the mucous membranes of the mouth to get into the blood stream. The nicotine in smokeless tobacco can cross into the bloodstream to get to the brain without any help or cuts or tears in the mucosa.
