This is great SNUS NEWS for all EU-snus lovers and 100 million smokers of cigarettes in EU who, today, are not allowed to buy snus which could actually help them quit the deadly smoking. Scientific studies show that 72 % of all snusers, men as well as women, are FORMER smokers who have quit. All thanks to snus! An International survey in january 2017 underlines the same thing i.e. that 73 % of all snusers are former smokers that habve quit smoking for good.

On the website of Swedish Match the High Court of Justice ruling in London is commented like this:

"Cigarettes and other types of traditional smokeless tobacco products, including Asian/African types, chewing tobacco and nasal snuff can all be legally sold within the EU. On July 1, 2016, Swedish Match initiated legal proceedings in the UK in order to challenge the EU ban on snus. Swedish Match is of the opinion that the snus ban is both discriminatory and disproportionate. On January 26, 2017, the British High Court decided to refer the case to the European Court of Justice for preliminary ruling. The ­timing is unclear on when this case may be heard."
