    So what, Do the legal cigaret not cause cancer and lung disease?. All are same. a waste of time. Why dont these police catch smugglers bringing low quality stuff.

      the reason why the gov is tough is because they are produced with low quality tobacco and generally they do not have the filter. Also it is a huge tax revenue loss to the gov. but it remains to be seen which minister will benefit from the sales of these fags in the underground market.
