758737-prisoner-smokingSmoking is prohibited in a county jail in Tennessee.  The jail now offers an alternative though.  Inmates that need their nicotine fix can purchase a disposable electronic cigarette for $13.50.

According to the sheriff at the Mason County Jail, it is hoped that the added income will help make up for the jail being understaffed and the staff being underpaid.  According to Sheriff Gammons, the new program could pull in around $45 thousand a year.

This is a rather innovative idea.  Not only does this significantly reduce the health risk from secondhand smoke in the facility, but it provides the inmates with the nicotine without which they might be quite irritable and prone to fights.

According to the story (which you can read right here), the electronic cigarettes that will be available to inmates will be of a particular design specially created for use in prison environments.  Whoever decided to pursue this idea, our hats are off to you.  This could be a national industry all by itself in a matter of years.

The e-cig itself will be a non-rechargeable that offers roughly 500 puffs (we’d guess about 1.5 to 2 packs of cigarettes of equivalent use).
