Snus is a very Swedish thing. Basically, for those of you not in the know, it is moist tobacco packed tightly together and “left” to infuse under the top lip of the user. Basically, a cigarette with no harm to others and no smoke at all.
While we do not think nicotine is a wonderful thing at the best of time, we do think that people should be able to do what they want if it does not affect people around them. Currently, the EU has a ban on Snus across Europe except Scandinavia (where the use of Snus is considered “traditional” and is therefore legal to sell).
This means that nobody in the UK is allowed to sell SNUS – although it is perfectly legal to import own use and to use it.
