What issues are affecting County tobacco farmers?

All tobacco producers are being faced with a declining demand product. Recent governmental and consumer litigation against the tobacco industry has led to a drastic reduction in the amount of tobacco an individual farmer can produce. Franklin county producers can only plant 56% of the tobacco they planted in 1997. This tremendous reduction in income has placed much hardship on county tobacco producers.
