Introduction

Sentence Variety Having to spend thirty years of my life on a tobacco farm, I cannot understand why people smoke. The whole process of raising tobacco involves deadly chemicals. Before the tobacco seed is ever planted, the ground is treated for mould and chemically fertilized. When the seed is planted and begins to grow, the bed is treated with weed killer. Then the plant is transferred to the field where after about two months, it is sprayed with poison to kill worms. When the time for harvest approaches, the plant is sprayed once more with a chemical to retard the growth of suckers. Ultimately, the tobacco is harvested and hung in a barn to dry. Amusingly, these barns are havens for birds; where they defecate all over the leaves. After drying, these leaves are divided by colour, however feces are not removed. Finally, they are then sold to the tobacco companies, but they cannot remove what I know is in the leaf and on the leaf. Therefore, I don't want any of it to pass through my mouth.
