-Beginning in Europe, the use and production of tobacco took off to become a powerful industry. Whether for an individual’s pleasure or for trade, tobacco use continued to grow. -When moving over towards the United States it became a very powerful industry as tobacco took off as a major cash crop that helped the economy, especially in the south.-It wasn’t until the 1900s when the health hazards associated with tobacco became a growing issue. -However, the use and distribution did not slow down. The power of tobacco continued to grow in the 1900s and still remains a powerful industry today.-Though the production, use, and distribution could not be slowed down, anti-tobacco campaigns began to show the health side effects and dangers of tobacco.
