How to store tobacco?

Hi everyone,
I know this is a place for food storage post but I have a question I'm hoping that someone can help me with.
I have the chance to purchase some smoking tobacco at a good price and I would like to put it in storage for
trading purposes later. But how do you store it? I have no clue on this one. Can I just stuff it in canning jars?
I don't want it to dry out,, I see tobacco in stores in cans and air tight pouches do they do anything special to
it before packaging it? Will it mold? Help?

It sorta surprised me the stuff aint much apt to mold. Somebody say it outgasses amonia which mold dont like.
I've been storing my supply in the ice box in sealed bags and some I have had 90 days or so. Its all still fine and hasnt lost much if any moisture. Its been processed and shredded so much cant think of any kinda bug that could live in it but woulda bet on it. This needs investigating.
