Well, the Lucky Luke (Belgian comic figure of a cowboy in the Wild West) for years carried a cigarette in his mouth, and was shown rolling cigarettes from tobacco. (which means that he had to spend the money to buy the tobacco, and find a store that sold tobacco). However, after several years, Morris, the artist, heard that Luke was influencing kids to smoke (as a positive, smoking, role model), and also Morris himself wanted to give up smoking. So suddenly, Luke started chewing on a blade of some undetermined straw.

See here for quotes.
