Description

WTHR examines the effectiveness of the state-imposed tobacco ban at Indiana prisons. The story finds that "tobacco moves freely through the system and the frequent but unsuccessful attempts to stop it rack massive expenses." The cost of punishing inmates for tobacco violations with the loss of early release credit, conservatively estimated at an extra 375 years of prison time, is at least $6, the program reports.
