Used to be, if you rolled your own smokes tobacco, anyway you forked over a little more than a buck a pound to the Feds for tax. Now it’s closer to $25.
Which means the next step shouldn’t surprise anyone:
A buddy of mine gave me some tobacco seeds he got from an “old indian feller o’er yonder”. Said it smoked like Marlboro.
So, I took some and started them in little styrofoam cups.
In about a week, these sprouts will be large enough to transplant outside in my large planters. Then I will transfer them to a larger, tilled area. I hear they get very large and have beautiful flowers.
One word of warning: the government is getting very large, and it may decide to tax Styrofoam.
