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. And as with pruno, prisons have cracked down, with Kansas prison officials removing spinach from the prison menu during a 1994 crackdown, trying desperately to stop the practice.

In an interview with the Associated Press, explaining the change to prison menus, Sgt. Ruth Divelbiss commented, 'It smells terrible. You can't print what it smells like. When you don't have tobacco, you do what you have to do.'"
