    Early Uses of Indian Tobacco in California
      US - Southwest
    By Edward K. Balls University Of California Press Indian Tobacco (Nicotiana) Indian Tobacco is found growing in the washes, on dryish plains and mesas, and in open valleys through out a large part of California, below 8000 feet. There are at least three kinds which were used as smoking tobacco by the Indians: N. Bigelovii, N. attenuata, and N. glauca. It would appear that the practice of smoking was more general in northern than in southern and eastern California. Smoking was really more a "cult," particularly among the tribes of the lower Klamath area. In the Karok economy, smoking was not practiced for pleasure but always for some definite end: as a part of the day's routine, or as a rite prescribed by the tribal customs.
    Economic Aspects of Tobacco
    Colonial Period 1612-1776; It was the "staple" of the Chesapeake colonies in a broader sense than any other staple the world has known. For, in the ancient province, all the processes of government society and domestic life began and ended with tobacco.
