Is not allowed in Vermont but it happens anyways! Thats the great thing about Vermont jails! If you're lucky you can do anything you like in jail! Did ya know that a common D battery and a couple of wires which are easily found in any battery run device like a radio will light a cigarette or start a nice fire? The jails allow some of these hoods to have this stuff! Ever been cut by sharp broken plastic? Same radio makes a great stealth knife too! Fun stuff huh kids? They know it all in these jails! They will be giving out trophys for this chit soon!
