In this Thursday, Aug. 7, 2014, photo, a farm worker carries a load of picked tobacco leaves at Chris Haskins' farm in Chatham, Va. Starting next month, America’s remaining tobacco growers will be totally exposed to the laws of supply and demand. The very last buyout checks go out in October to about 425,000 tobacco farmers and landowners. They’re the last holdovers from a price-support and quota system that had guaranteed minimum prices for most of the 20th century, sustaining a way of life that began 400 years ago in Virginia.
