Taxpayers will pay more than $2 million for nicotine substitutes for South Australian prisoners over the next four years, as the state moves to make its jails smoke-free. The nicotine patches and lozenges form part of the $6.2 million cost to taxpayers of keeping cigarettes out of the state's prisons in the years to 2022, with additional funding set aside for health and security measures, staff costs and quit support.
