HowTo: Make Prison Cigarettes with Spinach

Make Prison Cigarettes with Spinach

Akin to pruno, Blacktable's homemade cigarette "recipe" first originated with prison inmates:

"Cigarettes in jail can cost as much as $40 a piece. (As a result), inmates have turned to common items to get their fix, crafting smokes from dried spinach, spices and even coffee grounds.
