Commission wants to can snus sales on Finnish ships in Swedish waters

| October 14, 2013

The European Commission might put an end to the sale of snus on Finnish cruise ships even when they are sailing in Swedish waters, according to an Esmerk Finnish News story.

When the European Parliament voted on the commission’s proposed Tobacco Products Directive on Oct. 8, the status of snus was unchanged in that its sale remained banned throughout the EU, with the exception of Sweden.

The commission’s view is that the sale of snus is banned on ships that operate under the Finnish flag.

However, at the moment, many ships that operate under the Finnish flag sell snus when they are in Swedish waters.
