Our Smoking Presidents

Obama's occasional cigarette has nothing on these guys.

I would have liked to see more hand-rollers in here, but oh well:

2. John Adams, 1797-1801 A cigar man

4. James Madison, 1809-17 Also a stogie-lover

6. John Quincy Adams, 1825-29 Yet another cigar man

7. Andrew Jackson, 1829-37 Liked a cigar, but more so chewing tobacco

8. Martin Van Buren, 1837-41
All about the pipe

9. William Henry Harrison, 1841 Pipe guy too

10. John Tyler, 1841-45 Cigars

12. Zachary Taylor, 1849-50 Cigars too

17. Andrew Johnson, 1865-69 Liked cigars

18. Ulysses Simpson Grant, 1869-77 Cigar fiend, rumored to smoke 20 stogies a day
