Although the sale of all nicotine-containing products is still banned under a 1989 prohibition – with the exception of traditional tobacco products such as cigarettes, cigars, cigarillos, pipe and rolling tobacco, chewing tobacco and snus – this could soon come to an end, with Norway looking to legalise these products by the end of 2020.
