This website has out-scooped all other media outlets with this story.
A law firm has told us that they are gearing up for a class-action lawsuit to rid the AZ prison system of all tobacco products! This is great news for all lungs in the prison system. Maybe not so wonderful for the D.O.C. There are rumors that the AZDOC is worried about three things:
- How will the men prisoners react? When other countries and states did it, the men rioted and caused damage to the prison. (But they got over it.)
- The money the prison makes off the sale of tobacco will “go up in smoke.”
- There is already a critical shortage of officers, and 80% smoke or vape – will they quit?
