History of Tobacco Consumption, and Drug Abuse
The Past of Tobacco
1611 by colonist John Rolfe (1585–1622). Within seven years it had become the colony's leading export. By the 1630s about 1.5 million pounds were sold per year, helping sustain struggling New World settlements. Tobacco became an important cash crop, though during the nineteenth century it was increasingly dwarfed by cotton. After the Civil War (1861–65) and the abolition of slavery, most tobacco was grown by small, independent family-owned farms.
