Fake cigarettes campaign18th April 2008
People across the West Midlands and Staffordshire are being warned of the dangers of buying counterfeit cigarettes.
A new campaign called Counterfeit Kills will try to increase public awareness of the illicit cigarette trade and the health risks associated with smoking fake varieties, which can contain higher levels of chemicals such as arsenic, cadmium and benzene along with sawdust and even rat droppings. The campaign has been organised by HM Revenue and Customs with Smokefree Alliance groups in the region.
