(Washington Times) Former German Chancellor Helmut Schmidt has a stash of 38,000 menthol cigarettes in his home, because he fears the EU will try to ban them.

Lifelong nicotene addict Mr Schmidt, 94, puffs away on 40 a day and never appears on TV or in public without a filter tip in his hand or mouth.

Friends say he was ‘horrified’ to learn that Brussels is currently considering a ban on his only vice.

So he has stashed 200 cartons totaling 38,000 cigarettes of his favorite brand – Reyno – in his home.
