This was wonderful news considering that many of the Jamestown colonists had died or suffered miserably as their farming efforts had been relatively unsuccessful. Throughout Virginia and the greater Chesapeake, the potential cash value of tobacco soon captivated the imaginations of the colonists. They began to plant it in every available clearing, from fields to the forts and streets of Jamestown, and eventually to much of Tidewater Virginia.  "Dominating the Virginia economy after 1622, tobacco remained the staple of the Chesapeake colonies, and its phenomenal rise is one of the most remarkable aspects of our colonial history. Tobacco cultivation and exports formed an essential component of the American colonial economy during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
First encountered by American Indians, the plant Tobacco is natively cultivated in Northern and Southern America.

Throughout the years, an entire industry has been built on the production of tobacco, the main use of it being in cigarettes. The popularity of smoking said cigarettes ascended at a drastic rate until with the 20th century came various studies proving this use of the plant to have extreme potential for harming the human body.

Angry cowboys decided to start rustling from the larger ranches. Some rustlers were simply looking for unbranded cattle to collect and start a ranch in which they would find unbranded cattle on other rancher’s property. Other rustlers would rebrand cattle using a running iron with their own brand. Foremen, hired by the rancher, would often participate in rustling also. Since the ranchers trusted their foremen, most ranchers did not stay on their ranch except during shipping season.
In the winters the cowboys would ride down to Texas then up to Canada for work and come back with their pay waiting for them. They would drive cattle all the way across the country, leaving dead cattle and nurturing the young calves back to health to have as many as possible to sell at the auction. The cowboys would have deep conversations to keep themselves occupied while they were gone for so many months. Subjects such as things they haven’t experienced yet, love, meaningful relationships, and children would be the main topics discussed while away. Once returning from a long journey and showing the audience the hard work of a cowboy, they discover that the pay that they should have received for working all winter was cut down to just one month’s pay.
The American Cancer Society states that lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death for both men and women. Cigarette smoking is directly responsible for 87% of lung cancer cases in the United States annually.

According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 3,000 adults that do not smoke will die each year from lung cancer due to breathing in secondhand smoke. Smoking cigarettes is by far the main contributor to lung cancer.
