After Alabama jail, White County Jail is next in row to allow Electronic Cigarette to be sold within its facility.
Dallas, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/28/2013 -- Inmates at White county jail in Carmi, now have access to Electronic cigarettes. White County jail became smoke free in December 2002 after Doug Maier was elected sheriff of the facility. This act is likely to construe to a more peaceful environment. Sherriff Maier is going to make provision of sale of electronic cigarettes to inmates at the prison.
Sheriff Maier says, “Prior to my administration, prisoners were allowed to purchase cigarettes from a vending machine in the lobby. Electronic cigarettes will eliminate the second hand smoke issue and allow inmates who smoke to have this option,” Maier added. The move to allow inmates to buy electronic cigarette has primarily been made in order to deal with the problem of second hand smoke.
Expert at DigitalSmoke.org say, “the move may have also been triggered by the fact that jail often face the issue of smuggled tobacco and raw tobacco which is a far cry and much worse than electronic cigarette. E cigarette are nothing but a better alternative to any other form of tobacco”. Some states are proposing bans on sale of e cigarettes but the industry is still in bloom and the revenue generated is most likely to reach 1 million by the end of 2013. The long term health effects of vapor cigarettes are still a topic of research but looks like it is going to be in the market for a long pull now.
The cigarettes will be sold through the jail commissary with profits being used to pay for meals from public organizations all through White County and make up for the cost of the jail to White County taxpayers. The price of an electronic cigarette may vary from $12 for an ordinary cig to $200 for the best e cig available in the market. Experts at DigitalSmoke.org feel that “The soaring popularity of e cigarette has made the market much more competitive and all electronic cigarette brands are trying to make a mark in the market with best quality products as everyone strives for the best”
