Such a beautiful plant, if I had a garden I’d probably want to grow some tobacco. In my collage fodder boxes I found this old photos of a pair tobacco farmers. By the size of the original photo I am figuring it is from the 1930’s or 1940’s. Alas, it is a beautiful plant, but as most of us have figured out, smoking it is a pretty bad idea. If you’re not convinced, the FDA has a released a new series rather gruesome images of the effects of smoking. They are coming to a cigarette pack near you in 2012.
