One rule for them ...

Courtesy of Dick Puddlecote, the interesting story of what happens to tobacco that is seized by the UK Borders Agency. The background to this interesting tale is included. Seized tobacco is burned as fuel in a power station, and an information commissioner ruled that it was in the public interest that the power station should be identified.

Power stations can lawfully release emissions from tobacco into the atmosphere (even though there is no safe level of secondary smoke).
