E-Cig Sales Help Fund Oklahoma County Jails
KWTV reports that several Oklahoma county jails have begun selling e-cigarettes to inmates which help generate income for the jails.
Oklahoma law says every county must run a jail, but jails are expensive, so sheriff’s departments are trying to come up with new ways to raise money without getting it from taxpayers.
One way is to sell e-cigarettes to inmates. Washington and Muskogee Counties already do it and Rogers County just got approval.
The specially made e-cigarettes are sold for $10 a piece to the inmates.
