Dr. Floyd makes a buck off smokers coming and going. As a vascular surgeon for more than 30 years, he has operated on many smokers who suffer from tobacco-related hardening of the arteries. Dr. Floyd also owns allotments to grow 932,000 pounds of tobacco a year—enough for 26.3 million packs of cigarettes. Asked by a reporter in ’98 how he squares his tobacco plantations with his professional oath to do no harm, Floyd said, “You know, I just never have thought about it in those terms.”
