Tobacco in hand luggage

I live in Spain, near Gibraltar, and would like to know if the tobacco I bought in Gibraltar can be carried in my hand luggage. I am leaving from Malaga so am hoping it will be o.k. Thank you.

As far as I know there is no restriction on tobacco in hand luggage although you will need to comply with any Customs rules at your undisclosed destination country.

Is it explosive tobacco then? Why would you not be able to carry tobacco?

Just don't smoke it or chew it, and you'll be fine as far as the airline cares. Customs on the other end may be a problem, though. Chuck.

I often bring cigars from the UK in my carry-on luggage, and declare them, at US Customs, with no issues, so far.
