Tobacco Feed?

For most of my life, when the tobacco plant flowered it was almost immediately topped (removed) - these days with the huge industrial plantings that occur around us the flowers are left on for a considerable time.... at the moment I am looking across a 100 acre field of flowering tobacco. Is there evidence that bees actually feed on this stuff.... I suspect just the pollen as they are really packing it in.... no nectar flow that I can detect - at least not yet. Now that would be interesting - tobacco honey.
