Barr Agrees With Campbell: No E-Cigs In County Jail

Now both candidates for Sangamon County Sheriff are extinguishing the idea of letting jail inmates smoke electronic cigarettes. 


Two Southern Illinois counties are allowing the practice, saying it may improve morale.  But Undersheriff Jack Campbell last week said the idea has been rejected for the Sangamon County Jail, in part because of fears that inmates could use the battery-operated devices as a weapon. 


Campbell’s Republican primary opponent Wes Barr is also opposed to it.  On the 970 WMAY News Feed, Barr said the jail works just fine as a smoke-free environment, and sees no need to revert back to letting inmates smoke at all, even if the smoke from the device is really just water vapor.
