Illegal Tobacco, Vapes and Organised Crime

Prosper House, Prosper House, 59 Upper Warrengate, Wakefield WF1 4JZ

Face to Face Recovery College Courses (18+)

Serious organised crime gangs are bringing illegal nicotine products into our area, threatening the safety and health of local people.

This session will open your eyes to an issue many are unaware of, happening here on your doorstep. You will find out why selling cheap tobacco is not a victimless crime, learn about its effect on public health and see evidence of links to crimes like modern day slavery.

You will also learn how to spot different types of illegal cigarettes, the laws relating to vapes and what you can do to help tackle the issue and protect your health.

The session includes images and videos from West Yorkshire Trading Standards enforcement visits, including the surprising ways illegal tobacco is hidden.
