I'm  true-believer. I quit age 26. My great grandfather, James Anderson Woollen, buried Old Salem, N.C., was prizery manager of the Ogden & Hill Tobacco Company when it was larger than R.J.R. When I was in the ILA, port of Morehead City, N.C., I had the tobacco hogshead re-cooper gang. We repaired the fork-lift damged 950-pounds barrels of brightleaf tobacco shipped to the Japanese Tobacco Monopoly. We fumigated the leaf with chemicals to kill the bugs.  Ditto, when we stacked in-bound "Turkish" (Greek, Yugoslavian, etc.) 110-pound burlap wrapped bales on narrow pallets; we placed them in a warehouse and fumigated them with poison for about one day.  I asked a tobacco company supervisor; was the company worried about being sued?  No, they had lobbied Congress  to pass a law, mandating it. Immunity!
