UNITED KINGDOM: E-cigarettes allowed in prisons where smoking is prohibited.

While it is forbidden to smoke in Walton Prison (a district of Liverpool), inmates are still allowed to use electronic cigarettes in their cells. 


WITH THE STOPTOBER, VAPING IS ALSO INVITED IN PRISONS!


This campaign to support vaping in prison comes just weeks after a riot took place in Walton Prison. Indeed, real tensions appeared after the introduction of a smoking ban in prison.

With the Stoptober, several prisons encourage prisoners to quit smoking. As repression is not always the best solution, a more shower approach has been tried with Walton prison.

 

Electronic cigarettes were therefore made available in prison stores across the country. Because they contain nicotine, they must be accepted to curb smoking.

All North West prisons are participating in the Stoptober campaign to support staff and prisoners in their attempts to quit smoking. Equipment and resources have been made available to all prisons in the Northwest and so far the feedback has been positive.

A spokeswoman for the Prison Service said: "  This phased introduction of e-cigarettes aims to reduce the risks to staff and inmates exposed to second-hand smoke, while maintaining the safety and security of our prisons.«
