Snus is not new. It was first used in Sweden in the 19th century. Snus (pronounced "snoose") is a moist, steam cured tobacco product that comes in a loose form or in pouches, called portions. Snus is unique in that it is steam cured and not fire cured, which produces substantially fewer nitrosamines, the primary carcinogen found in smokeless tobacco. It is used by placing it under the upper lip for extended periods of time, and there is no need to spit. The nicotine is absorbed through the gums.

The "new" snus you are probably thinking of is Camel or Marlboro snus. These American versions are dry, white portions with less nicotine and more flavoring to make it more appealing to those new to snus.

Why is snus illegal?

It has a very high dose of nicotine, which makes it very addictive. The first time you try it you will probably feel sick, even if you are used to nicotine, which makes it hard to pass the product in "should we allow this 'new' product"- tests. The world has no need for another tobacco product, although Snus hasn't been proven to be dangerous. Yet. first thing: snus has less nicotine. second thing: It's not new. it's just new to the U.S. And it still ain't that new. Snus is not illegal. I buy it all the time although I have to buy it online because the States will not carry the real stuff where I am at. It is illegal to sell snus in the EU (apart from Sweden and Norway) Snus is not illegal unless if you are under 18.

Is Marlboro snus the same thing as dip?

Marlboro snus is spitless but dip is not. The reason to that is that snus made with the Swedish invented pasteurization process (steem) which remove certain tobacco ingredients which is not healthy (including TSNA content). Dip is not pasteurized but fermented (heated). The TSNA levels in dip is more than three times higher than snus.
