crazy tobacco
n. Tobacco that has been enhanced genetically to provide more nicotine than regular tobacco.

Example Citation:
"SANTA CRUZ DO SUL, BRAZIL—Freakish tobacco plants that explode from the soil in this remote river valley grow huge leaves on stalks as thick as Louisville Sluggers. The growers here call it 'fumo louco.' Crazy tobacco. Crazy not just because it grows so big and so fast. Crazy because it has been genetically altered by one of the world's largest tobacco companies to pack twice the nicotine of other commercially grown leaf."
