(WBIR) Electronic cigarettes are taking over the inside of some Tennessee county jails.
Selling e-cigarettes in jails is a tactic used to lower the number of cigarettes being smuggled in. Also, any profits made go into the jail general fund.
Greene County Sheriff Steve Burns added electronic cigarettes to the jail commissary on September 16th.
They sell close to 20 e-cigarettes a day at $10 per cigarette.
