Illegal Tobacco. What's the Real Cost?
WE ALL LOVE A BARGAIN, BUT CHEAP TOBACCO IS COSTING MORE THAN YOU MIGHT BARGAIN FOR. HERE'S WHY...
Sold at pocket money prices, cheap tobacco makes it all too easy for our children to smoke and become addicted.
Far from being a victimless crime, the illegal tobacco trade makes it easier for children to start smoking, takes advantage of cash-strapped families, and helps fund organised crime. People selling cheap, illegal tobacco are likely to be selling other things illegally (drugs, fake branded goods and alcohol), exposing our children to more dangers.
Take a look around this website for more information on the damage illegal tobacco is doing in your area and help us drive it out for good.

WHAT'S BEING DONE ABOUT IT?
Make no mistake. Cheap tobacco is illegal tobacco. A decade ago the illegal tobacco trade in the UK was substantial, but we have managed to halve it in those ten years.
The quantities of illegal tobacco on our streets has substantially reduced, but it is still out there and we all have to keep a watchful eye out to protect our children and our communities and help stub illegal tobacco out for good.
