I chatted idly with this older gentleman while were waiting at the hospital to transport a patient back home, his pipe dangling laconically from his mouth.
Every year, he told me, he plants a few tobacco plants at his dryland rice farm, to supply him for the year. “It’s much cheaper than buying tobacco from the market,” he said.
He puffed contentedly while we waited.
Organic, artisanal tobacco? Get in line, hipsters.
