Stamp out illegal tobacco in Herts

posted 23 Jul 2012, 10:56 by Tomo
Smoking remains one of the biggest causes of ill health in Hertfordshire where almost 1 in 5 adults still smoke. 

Over a third of local smokers have been offered illegal tobacco which comes in the form of smuggled or counterfeit cigarettes and hand rolling tobacco.  It is sold at about half the price of legal tobacco and attracts young people bringing them into contact with criminals and making it easier for them to get addicted.

Please share any information about sales of illegal tobacco with Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111.
