CRAP !!
Indigenous Virginia tobacco was a plant inferior to the Spanish variety
grown further south, but then one John Rolfe (Pocahontas's husband and both
of them smokers) got hold of some Trinidadian tobacco seed and tried it out.
In the rich Virginia soil it flourished and it became the cash base of the
colony for some years. It was literally worth its weight in gold. Tobacco
was so profitable that the colony's governors continually had to enforce the
cultivation of food and in fact, much food was imported.
