According to a report from Polish media outlet dziennikwschodni on November 8th, a 19-year-old Polish man from Lubartów has been detained by criminal investigators, as well as Lublin Customs and Tax Authorities, for producing homemade e-liquid at his residence.
According to the police investigation, the man first purchased the materials for making e-liquid online, and then proceeded to produce and sell e-cigarette products from his residence. The search report reveals that the man had approximately 28 liters of e-cigarette production ingredients.
According to the tax bureau’s estimation, the total amount of unremitted consumption tax involved by the man exceeds 30,000 zlotys.
