at the illegal seed store? Does it grow wild anywhere? It looks like basil on steroids. I would think that the commercial producers all have some genetically engineered proprietary strain of the plant and would be kept under heavy guard. I don't know but there may be some tough optimal growing conditions that it needs and then you would need to figure out the curing and drying process. Some here, probably subject matter experts, would say growing and using weeds would be easier. I dunno.
Actually it's super easy to grow, and there are curing and drying instructions on this DIY website called Instructables (google it).

Over the counter? No idea. Plenty of seed suppliers online
How can I search for google?
Use Yahoo to search for Google. :)
there are many shops on internet, google it...
or ask your friend
just google seed shops
Try dogpile
Commercial producers do not buy seeds, but rather "plants" (like one NORMALLY buys tomato plants, rather then start the seed in January inside somewhere).
PS: While I was a young stripe, our neighbors had a very VERY small field of it (less then a quarter acre) where they planted the plants, and even then, they had to plant early, cover with plastic and steam them to keep them warm when it got too cold.
i got a variety from cannada on ebay "huge leaf" some of the plants will last through the winter if there is not to much frost. i got seeds for the first time last year does any1 know how long they will last if i keep them safe

The Tobacco Seed Company has been around for over 10 years and has over 50 types of smokers tobacco seeds. We're based in the UK, but can get seeds over to the USA in a matter of days.

Tobacco can be a fussy plant. From things i've read, it needs a lot of water, so the south west may not offer ideal growing conditions for established cultivars.

Have you considered something like this?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicotiana_quadrivalvis

it's a wild species that grows in the southwest. you'll have to find a plant and get the seeds, but... using it is free.

Here in Northern California it grows super easily. Toss some seeds in the ground, water it once a week or more, break off cleanly any leaves that get bug damage (rare) and then when the time is right, pick and dry.

I don't know if it is illegal to grow here in California, but if it is illegal to grow anywhere, it would be here.

Oh. Now I see that you are in Devon. I assumed that you meant the Southwestern US.
