image for Pot Now Sold To inmates In Colorado Prisons

In urban centers such as New York City and Los Angeles, the sale of e-cigarettes in jails and prisons is forbidden. But throughout rural America prison guards are supplementing their incomes by selling there nicotine laden regular cigarette substitutes for as mush as $15.00 each.

The e-cigarettes are sold by guards to supplement their usually minimum wage incomes.

Colorado allows guards to sell the cigarettes but now that pot has been legalized they are selling the weed to inmates instead and, in the process, making more of a profit

The warden at the Rocky Mountain Penitentiary, J. Bentham, 56, says he very much likes the new program.

"The inmates are now happy and docile," he says. "And the guards can now feed their families."
