UK MP Says Snus Should be Legalized Right Away


Whilst referring to the success Sweden has had in reducing smoking rates via snus, conservative party mp David Jones, said the UK should “legalize it now.”

Snus is a moist powder tobacco product that is placed under the upper lip for extended periods.

It is mostly popular in Sweden, Denmark and Norway, where it is legal and considered an effective tobacco harm reduction product. In fact, snus has not only led to Sweden boasting the lowest smoking rates in Europe, but more importantly, also to reporting the lowest rates of lung cancer across the continent.

Last August, the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for the Department of Health Jo Churchill, was asked whether the UK government would consider conducting an assessment on the effectiveness of the ban on snus. “The Government will consider in due course reviewing the position on snus, and whether the introduction of this product onto the UK market would promote a proportionate approach to managing risks, one which protects the young and non-smokers, whilst giving smokers access to products which may reduce harm,” responded Churchill.
