CAN I STILL PURCHASE MENTHOL AND CAPSULE CIGARETTES?
As of 20th May 2020, all Menthol and Capsule cigarettes are banned from sale in the UK and EU as part of the European Tobacco Products Directive.
This means that you can no longer buy these products online, in stores or supermarkets nationwide.
WHAT SHOULD I DO NOW?
For more information about what tobacco products are available now the ban is in effect, speak to your local retailer.
Should you be looking for menthol alternatives in vape products or nicotine pouches, options are available at the websites below which are not covered by the ban.
DON’T BE TEMPTED TO TURN TO ILLICIT TRADE
With the sale of Menthol and Capsule cigarettes now prohibited, some Menthol and Capsule adult smokers may be tempted to buy fake alternatives from the black market.
Adult smokers should not consider this as fake products are not regulated and have previously been found to contain asbestos, mould, dust, dead flies and rat droppings. This also invites criminality into our communities and funds serious organised crime.
