The sale of illegal tobacco can have far reaching and devastating effects on entire communities.
Illegal tobacco can be fake products, smuggled genuine products or brands specifically made for the illegal tobacco market.
Research shows that illegal tobacco:
- brings organised crime into communities
- encourages children to start smoking
- prevents adult smokers from giving up.
Suppliers of illegal tobacco are often linked to drug dealing, people trafficking and even terrorism. Don’t let illegal tobacco into your community.
