1) Why would any organic producer want to produce tobacco? I once
read a statement of organic principles somewhere that I seem to recall
featured words like "wholesome, healthful products."
2) Why would any organic consumer want to consume tobacco? I'd be very
interested to hear whether they pay a premium for organic tobacco, and if so,
why? To safeguard their health?
I hadn't heard that there is significant organic tobacco production, but if
there is, doesn't this raise some pretty serious questions about what in the
world "organic" is all about? Perhaps some organic tobacco
producers/consumers could enlighten me.
