How Iron Law of Prohibition Works in Prisons, Where Everything’s Prohibited

Upon arriving at Washington State Penitentiary in 1995, tobacco was prevalent in prisons, but a smoking ban was looming. By 2004, tobacco became contraband, leading to increased enforcement and penalties. Smuggled tobacco triggered investigations and solitary confinement. The ban shifted the market to synthetic cannabinoids like Spice, as they mimicked smoking cigarettes. Possessing tobacco resulted in punishments, but smuggling could lead to criminal prosecution. Tobacco prohibition in prisons changed the market, highlighting the Iron Law of Prohibition. As tobacco use declined, Spice emerged due to its similarity to cigarette smoking. The next part of the story will be released soon.
