Swedish Snus in Los Angeles?

I'm looking for a retail source of Swedish Snus in Los Angeles.

I know about this site: http://www.swedish-snus.com/ - they ship all over the world, but I would prefer to just buy it in person.

I believe snus is illegal in the US.

It's illegal in the EU (outside of Sweden), but not in the U.S. And, it looks like it's being marketed as a trendy alternative to smoking. From here:

"Some people are confused at first when they try it," says Bettina Bilger, a 26-year-old actress moonlighting as a Swedish Match promoter at a store in New York's hip SoHo neighborhood. "But they like that they can use it anytime and no one can tell."

I'd try an upscale cigar store/tobacconist.

Um, isn't snus spelled "Copenhagen" in english? It's basically imported dip.

Sorry, I don't have an answer for you, but instead have a question of my own: why would it be illegal? It's just snuff, right?
