Tobacco InfoTobacco is an annual or bi-annual growing 1-3 meters tall with large sticky leaves that contain nicotine. Native to the Americas, tobacco has a long history of use as a shamanic inebriant and stimulant. It is extremely popular and well-known for its addictive potential.
Nicotiana rustica leaves. Nicotiana rustica leaves have a nicotine content as high as 9%, whereas Nicotiana tabacum (common tobacco) leaves contain about 1 to 3%
A cigar is a tightly rolled bundle of dried and fermented tobacco which is ignited so that its smoke may be drawn into the mouth. Cigar tobacco is grown in significant quantities in Brazil, Cameroon, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Honduras, Indonesia, Mexico, Nicaragua, Sumatra, Philippines, and the Eastern United States.
Tobacco is an agricultural product processed from the fresh leaves of plants in the genus Nicotiana. It can be consumed, used as an organic pesticide, and in the form of nicotine tartrate it is used in some medicines. In consumption it may be in the form of cigarettes smoking, snuffing, chewing, dipping tobacco, or snus.
Cigarettes are smoking products consumed by people and made out of cut tobacco leaves. Cigars are typically composed completely of whole-leaf tobacco. A cigarette has smaller size, composed of processed leaf, and white paper wrapping. The term cigarette refers to a tobacco cigarette too but it can apply to similar devices containing other herbs, such as cannabis.
I tried to stop smoking cigarettes by telling myself I just didn't want to smoke, but I didn't believe myself.

I kissed my first girl and smoked my first cigarette on the same day. I haven't had time for tobacco since.
To smoke or not to smoke: I can make of either a life-work.
There's a lot of people who, a cigarette is about the only vacation they have.
Good food, good sex, good digestion, good sleep: to these basic animal pleasures, man has added nothing but the good cigarette.
Watching the smoke dance out of a cigarette is like watching a girl dance out of her dress.
Tobacco, divine, rare superexcellent tobacco, which goes far beyond all panaceas, potable gold and philosopher's stones, a sovereign remedy to all diseases.
Coffee and tobacco are complete repose.

More than a decade after Big Tobacco apparently knuckled under to a coalition of 46 state attorneys-general, how is the industry faring?
The tobacco industry spent $9.3 million over the past two years to fight cigarette taxes, support candidates and influence politics in California, an anti-smoking group said in a report issued this week.
I grew up Longview, Washington. A small town on the banks of the Columbia River, on the Washington-Oregon border, Longview had a few small stores, mostly catering to the logging industry that inundates all small towns in the Pacific Northwest. For Christmas shopping, or, come to think of it, for any big-ticket purchases, my family would hit the I-5 South to Portland, Oregon.
As a signatory to the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) Framework Convention on Tobacco Control, the government of India is keen to show its credentials and credibility by bringing down tobacco cultivation. Sheer size and value of India’s tobacco crop and especially FCV (flue-cured Virginia), comprising the bulk of home-grown unmanufactured tobacco and export revenue earned, is stopping GOI from taking the step too far. That is, forcing its farmers out of tobacco and into other less lucrative crops.
Attorney General Jack Conway announced Wednesday that Kentucky, as required under the 1998 Master Settlement Agreement (MSA) between the major tobacco manufacturers and 52 states and territories, received its annual payment of nearly $100 million in tobacco settlement money this week.
I recently attended a presentation by British American Tobacco (BAT), the second largest listed company on the JSE by market capitalisation (R551bn) after BHP Billiton. I can honestly say it was the best presentation I have attended in at least the past decade and came close to the seminal presentation given by then-SAB CEO Meyer Kahn (now chairman of SABMiller) in Braamfontein in the late 1990s.
The number of California smokers has continued to decrease more than the national average, according to data presented by the state health officials. However there are evident discordances in gender, education, income and ethnicity.
The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) has issued many excellent reports about the tobacco industry including one released this week. This new report talks at length about the manner in which Big Tobacco is now increasingly lobbying the developing world, where rules are still lax and apparently easier to bend or break (compared to the developed world) and potential for new business is enormous.
