Native

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

A native is a person born in a particular place. In astrology, this term refers to the person for whom a natal chart was cast. In the latter sense, it is a useful, concise term that, in any extended discussion, is preferable to “person for whom this chart was cast” or some such other unwieldy expression. The term native can also refer to someone born under a particular sign, as when one says that she or he is a native of Cancer.

According to Drilon, there appears to be 'inequitable and grossly disproportionate' terms of the value of the Virginia leaf tobacco and native tobacco being produced by the provinces and their allocation under RA 7171.
