I raised tobacco for years, sometimes as much as 17 acres. Hard and dirty work, especially harvesting.
Had I saved the tobacco from one acre, I would have had enough to provide smokes for a lifetime. Consider:
A good acre of tobacco will average at least 3,000 pounds - we got as much as 4,400.
3,000 pounds of tobacco equals 48,000 ounces.
An ounce of tobacco makes 40 cigarettes.
That's 1.92 million smokes.
Two packs a day for 50 years is 720,000 cigs.
