Tougher Action on Tobacco Sold to Minors

Published torsdag 11 mars 2010 kl 08.53

Sweden's center-right government is cracking down on store owners selling tobacco to minors under the age of 18.

Sharper surveillance is to be carried out - and violators are to lose their tobacco sales licenses for six months. Shop owners will also be required to have training programs for sales personnel to avoid selling cigarettes and Swedish wet oral tobacco called "snus" to young people.


A study by the Ministry of Health and Welfare study shows that 46% of 15 and 16 year olds have little problem going into stores here and buying tobacco.
