Record #:
In January 1964, the Surgeon General explained the findings of a recent study—that cigarette smoking was linked to lung cancer and heart disease. Since that time, the tobacco industry has received a number of blows, including the end of the quota system in 2004. Some North Carolina tobacco farmers continue to grow tobacco, but many discontinued harvesting the crop and instead turned to farming other products, such as berries and grapes.
