No, Snus is Swedish steamed tobacco that you keep in your mouth. Different from chew.

It's not roasted like chewing tobacco and therefore less pyrolizing and less carcinogens are made (think eating steamed toast versus burnt toast) so it's much healthier.

I don't know where to find any in Calgary, I heard it was sold as a trial in Calgary and Edmonton a few years ago by DuMaurier.

Sweden has the mostsnus users in the world, and has theloswest tobacco related cancer rate in the world
