Or to lay the groundwork to deny people the right to smoke in their own homes. Camel putting his nose in the tent so to speak.

They already did such a ban in Canada, even though I kind of can't understand why since it would really improve their cardiovascularity of being forced to quit if the convicts a smoker. It just improving their stamina reallly.

It is nothing altruistic I assure you. It is due to cost. See a smoker will likely require more medical care over the course of a long term sentence with medications, exams and test, operations, not to mention dental work. It ads up for the state.

True, but life insurance wouldn't have to pay as much if they did.

After all the above am I really meant to give two #s about some criminals smokes?

No.
You could however spare a thought for the people who work in prisons who's jobs will be made harder and more dangerous by this decision at a time when staffing levels and morale are on the decline.
