    Re: Makla

    Is makla the only tobacco product available that seems inconsistent with the law? Are there any others?

    Interesting question what I have heard "snus is the only oral-snuff product that ain't aloud in EU". But if that is true can I not tell for sure

    What's banned by the EU is very specific and means that you cannot legally buy american moist snuff (dip) or swedish snus - the stipulation is that it's moisture content is more than something like 30% - drier snuff is considered nasal snuff and is legal ... which here in the UK is exempt from even any tobacco taxes. Chewing tobacco is legal, makla and similar middle eastern oral tobacco is legal, indian pan masala is legal. However apart from in certain mining communities where smoking underground was banned there is very little historical use of oral tobacco in the UK.

    Some snus manufacturers have created products which are almost exactly the same as snus portions, these are called chewing bags (even though no-one using them would ever chew them) to get round the legislation.

    Right on. I'm back on a snuff kick, it's cool how you guys have at least protected snuff. I do like oral more but I think that's just because it was basically my first way of having tobacco

    Makla is a North African type tobacco. It's basically based off of what is taken in North African communities, i think.
    Makla is made in belgium, and not in africa. It's a high powered snus. Makla Africaine Bentichou and El Kantara are more mild. The
    maklas in metal tins are about 2x as powerful. Makla is one of my favourite type snus tobaccos, seriously. I am not
    surprised about the ingredient list, and that's probably accurate. They might have changed their recipe, as now the
    Kantara and Africaine Bentichou are 20 grams (were 25 g). It's actually got a pretty nice kick to it, I've been taking it
    for 2 years now.
