Radical: the Government should prohibit the sale of tyggetobak

Maybe linking you mainly snuff and tyggetobak with our Swedish neighbours, but there is much to indicate that the smokeless tobacco has developed into a trend among Danish young people.

According to professor of tobaksforebyggelse, University of Copenhagen, Charlotta Pisinger, there is no doubt that snus and tyggetobak becoming more and more prevalent.

today is the sale of snus is illegal in Denmark, but the law exempts tobacco, that is intended to inhale or chew. Radical Liberal party sundhedsordfører, Lotte Rod, believes that the sale of tyggetobak should be prohibited by law.

- I think the right way to go is to make sure that young people do not start using tobacco, and it can a ban be with. I listen to the scientists when they say that there is no health difference, whether it is snuff or tyggetobak, and that it therefore should be banned, says Lotte Rod (RV).

She believes that a ban on tyggetobak is a natural step on the road to ensure the objective of a tobacco-free young generation in 2030, which the government set with the 'cancer plan IV' in 2016.

- actually, I think that the government is failing here. They have even helped to put the objective that we must have the first generation of young people, who did not start smoking or using tobacco. And then it's listlessly, he is not going to do what it needs to, says Lotte Rod (RV).

Sundhedsordfører for the Left, Jane Heitmann, responding to criticism that the government has already taken a number of other initiatives in order to achieve the objective.

- for example, We have entered into a partnership agreement with retailers to ensure that retailers increasingly demand proof of identity, and this is regardless of whether it is cigarettes or tyggetobak, you buy. We have also secured more funding to the Danish safety technology authority, so that they can assist the police in the enforcement of the law. And last but not least, we have, together with the Radical Left, launched a large and comprehensive campaign on the social media targeted at young people, and particularly those in the vocational schools, says Jane Heitmann (V).

Jane Heitmann (V) are pleased that the Radical Left supports the government's objective, but she does not think that a ban is the right way to go.

- What is the most important thing here, is that Danish legislation is complied with, and that has retail industry a huge responsibility. And it has the young people's parents also. They have the responsibility to talk with their young people about why it is stupid to move down the tobaksvejen, she says.

Paradoxical difference in the law

Although, according to professor of tobaksforebyggelse Charlotta Pisinger, no difference between the contents of the snuff and tyggetobak, talking law a second language. It was prohibited to market snuff after the implementation of an EU directive back in 2016, while the tyggetobak and other smokeless tobacco products intended for chewing or inhaling is excluded by the law.

- It is strange that snuff is illegal, and tyggetobak not, when the only difference is in how the tobacco is cut, says sundhedsordfører Lotte Rod (RV).

The paradoxical difference in law wondering also sundhedsordfører for the party, Peder Hvelplund.

- the Device was not in favor of the ban on snus, at the time it was introduced, but it amazes me that there must be a ban on snus, when there is a ban on tyggetobak. It is crucial should not be, how the tobacco is cut, but the content of the nicotine, and therefore I do not understand, that is the difference in the legislation, there is today, he says.

Peder Hvelplund (EL) disagree, however, that a ban on tyggetobak is the solution.

- I think, basically, not on the idea of a ban. I would rather see that we get the regulated area better and get focus on information and information on the use of tyggetobak, We can f.ex. look at tighter regulation of the nicotine yield of tyggetobak, says Peder Hvelplund.

Sundhedsordfører for the Danish people's Party, Liselott Blixt, also believe that a ban is the solution. In fact, it should, if it stood for the Danish people's Party, neither be illegal to market snus or tyggetobak.

- I prefer to see that young people in Denmark are using snus than smoking, and it was to us, so we had not a ban on snus. Young people have always been subversive and have wanted to try it, there are prohibited. We believe, therefore, that instead of a ban to ensure the correct information about the product, says Liselott Blixt (DF).

the Parties in the Danish parliament is discussing in these days of tax increases on cigarettes, and the issue of tariff escalation splitter also parties in relation to the tyggetobak. Sundhedsordfører from the Radical Left, Lotte Rod, see a tax increase as the next best solution.

- I seems clear that a ban makes the most sense, but if we can find the majority in order to put the charges up, I will also like to contribute to it, says Lotte Rod (RV).

Endhedslistens sundhedsordfører, Peder Hvelplund, proposes first and foremost, an increased focus on information on the smoke-free tobacco products, but he is willing to open up the discussion on tariff escalation.

- We will be completely open to look at a tax increase for tyggetobak, says Peder Hvelplund (EL).

Different it looks from the Danish people's Party, where sundhedsordfører Liselott Blixt completely reject the effect of tariff escalation.

- I do not think that increased taxes is the way to go. We do not want a state that will control everything we put in the mouth. First we go after cigarettes, so we go after the nicotine, then the alcohol and then the cool goods. Therefore, we must also live our lives, says Liselott Blixt (DF).

Sundhedsordfører for the Left, Jane Heitmann, corresponding to the Left not discussed tax increases on smokeless tobacco.

Cf. chapter 4 section 13 of the Law on tobacco m.v. do oral tobacco is not placed on the market in Denmark. It will say that it is at home is illegal to sell and advertise snuff.

the Law exempts tobacco, that is intended to inhale or chew. Therefore, the marketing of tyggetobak not illegal, as it is today.

It is also legal to import snus for personal consumption from, for example, Sweden, with a maximum of 750 g of pure snuff, or 2250 g including packaging.
