Illegal Tobacco. Let's keep it out.
Selling cheap illegal cigs might not seem like a big deal, but
it's bad news for our
community for all sorts of reasons.
Children and young smokers are often targeted, making it even
easier for them to get hooked. Smoking is the UK's leading cause of
early death, causing over 80,000 avoidable deaths every year.
Young people are visiting illegal fag houses to buy cigarettes
and getting involved with criminals closely linked with drugs and
Illegal tobacco has strong connections with organised crime, so
many of the people smuggling, distributing and selling it are
involved in drug dealing, money laundering and other crime.
