Swedish Snus Export to EU Not A Priority

The efforts by the Government to legalise the export the Swedish snus, the moist snuff that is put under your top lip, has temporarily been put on hold.

This is because Sweden holds the EU Presidency, and according to Health Minister and Christian Democrat Göran Hägglund it is not right to push for your own interests or issues that are hard to win during this period.

It is twenty years ago that Swedish snus was outlawed in the EU. It is however allowed in Sweden.
