Americans have been smoking for avery long time,at least since the Indians in Virginia traded some tobacco to the Europeans coming over to colonize this land.
TheIndians/nativeAmericans smoked pipes & the colonists followed their example.
Sincethen, tobacco use hasseen many changes:
mint flavored cigs
fruit & liquor flavored pipe tobacco
No cigs ( banned in many cities, restaurants; hospitals; office buildings & stores)
No cigs; people have or are trying to stop for "health reasons"
Nocigs; taxes on them have gone up so high people,especiallly youngsters are finding it impossible t o afford them
