INSOLITE - Paris: Tobacco sticks placed at the foot of a smuggling commodity market for cigarettes

This Saturday morning several passersby posted on Twitter and Instagram photo's of the Barbès-Chapelle crossroads in Paris eighteenth century where a "carrot", the famous tobacconist-tobacco shops, was sealed on the wall. The sector is best known for organizing a smuggling market for cigarettes.

The kiosk located at the exit of the Barbès-Rochechouard metro indicates that this is not a fake one.

For the time being, we do not know who is on the initiative of this action that, in the few responses we have observed, makes both smiles and annoyances.

Halfway through the day, RATP agents began dismantling the facility. The confederation of tobacconists seriously indicated not to stand behind the "root".
