This research reveals a significant increase from 3.5% in 2003 to 24.6% in 2014 - in the number of people smoking Roll Your Own tobacco in Ireland. One in four smokers now use Roll Your Own. Report authors Dr David Evans, Paul Hickey and Dr Anne O’Farrell also highlight the targeted marketing of Roll Your Own products and the tax differential between Roll Your Own tobacco and manufactured cigarettes.
