Tobacco As Healer Loses Status … Snuff Said!

Daddy (Bud Lett), a devout tobacco farmer, liked to brag about his favorite crop. Daddy read in “The Farmer’s Almanac” that the tobacco plant had been around even before Jesus Christ and was used in tribal rituals and religious ceremonies possibly dating back to 100 B.C. “The Almanac” stated that tobacco was traced to 800 A.D. when the Chinese and later the Aztecs and Mayans used it for healing.

Ancient medicine men and women created herbal poultices of tobacco leaves and claimed to cure various afflictions. “Tobacco smoke would induce spells in the living and would help the dead pass into eternity,” Daddy quoted from “The Almanac.”

Tobacco became cherished in the 1940s on farms in the South when the bold boll weevil infested cotton but obviously didn’t crave the taste of the new green plant growing in the fields. Country folks sure did like the scent of those cured tobacco leaves that, after processing, became cigarettes, cigars, snuff and chewing tobacco. More importantly, they loved this big cash crop that provided profit on farms that were struggling.
