A bakery located a few meters from a school gained significant revenue obtained by selling cigarettes to school. All of them minors. In addition, the establishment was not licensed to sell snuff.
Local police sealed the premises and opened two penalty minutes. Green Patrol officers handled the investigation. Upon learning of selling snuff to minors in the establishment, quietly waited several students were introduced on site. They did not have to wait long.
A group of four entered the bakery. One single cigarettes bought five for which he paid a euro and a half. The officers found that he was only 17. With this information, the officers raided the establishment. The manager of the bakery tried to excuse himself by saying that the buyer had no identity card with them.
This ploy did not stop the Green Patrol agents instituting an act of infringement of sanitary measures, to sell snuff to minors.
Also, the Green Patrol agents rose another record by selling products without authorization. The disciplinary proceedings could result in a fine range between 12,000 and 13,000 euros. Officials also initiated another record to find that they had no liability insurance.
This body, which belongs to an initiative of Michael Bloomberg, mentioned in his report ‘illegal snuff Traffic: illegal profits and public dangers‘ that there is evidence that the major tobacco companies in the world took part in the illegal trafficking of cigarettes, ranging from court cases to documents produced by the companies as a result of a wave of demands.
This indicates that in addition to promoting and supporting the smuggling of their own brands, the companies have supervised and directed the actions of intermediaries in smuggling routes taken by some of the transport of cigarettes.
Meanwhile, amid the conflicting positions, WHO predicts deaths increasing because of snuff: 8 million people annually snuff consumption estimated at 2030, of which 80% occur in developing countries development.
