Warning: Do not attempt to eat any part of the Nicotiana gensus of plant. It can be extremely dangerous and even fatal. If you choose to do so, it is under your own risk and responsibility. This website nor I are not responsible for you.

that being said...
Not everyone smokes it, there are medicinal uses for it, some countries only use it for recreation, and some...are using it for food?


"Nutritional value

A protein of the White–Brown Complex subfamily[4] can be extracted from the leaves. It is an odorless, tasteless white powder and can be added to cereal grains, vegetables, soft drinks and other foods. It can be whipped like egg whites, liquefied or gelled and can take on the flavour and texture of a variety of foods. It is 99.5% protein, contains no salt, fat or cholesterol. It is currently being tested as a low calorie substitute for mayonnaise and whipped cream"

You ingest, you don't digest. They are extracting the proteins from the plant and using it as a base for some popular foods/condiments.

My thoughts: a possibility for a new boom in tobacco growing. It would be extremely difficult to import fresh leaf to break down and steal the nutrients from, they would almost need to grow it in the US just for cost sake.
