TRUTH !!
Tobacco leaves were first rolled into bundles, and then, in accordance with the Tobacco
Inspection Act passed in Virginia in 1730, inspectors issued tobacco notes based on the

(by burning) any tobacco that wasn't --ahem--up to snuff. The policy earned Virginia a
reputation for having a very high-quality tobacco.
