I have a partner in prison and the smoking ban along with this rumored 6.00pm bang up is just asking for trouble. The smoking ban was inevitable really.. it was only a matter of time. I do agree with Aimee and will also say that the Prison Officers are going to have their work cut out. They are already having to deal with prisoners doing cold turkey coming off drugs, so a smoking ban on top of all that will probably push some to the limits. Are prisoners going to get some help with the ban or are they just expected to do a cold turkey with the cigs? Good luck to HMP!
