According to reports on Monday, as well as fashioning improvised cigarettes, in some cases inmates caused fire hazards thanks to their means of lighting up. A smoking ban began to be implemented in prisons in South West England and Wales in 2016 and though the phased transition has been less problematic than thought. However, prison reports indicated some creative interpretations of cigarettes by inmates. In Exeter, prisoners had apparently mixed tea leaves with film scraped from nicotine patches which they had tried to smoke.

It also suggested a higher-than-normal rate of self-harm at the prison could be attributed to the ban. Though it said: “Incidents were not adequately interrogated to identify local trends, including the impact of the smoking ban.” However, despite the “improvised cigarettes” a report on an unannounced visit to Exeter in August last year said the ban had been “generally well-managed”. The report added: “This was a major achievement.” Most popular: North Korea is not Syria: Why the US cannot attack Pyongyang A prison service spokesperson told The Times: “All prisoners receive support in quitting smoking should they require it. This includes nicotine replacement therapy and behavioural support. “Where prisoners are found to be misusing substances or replacement patches, the item will immediately be confiscated and the offender will face additional punishment.” View photos More You may be interested in:

J&J also benefited from several smaller acquisitions and from the ongoing restructuring of its medical device segment, begun in early 2016. Revenue was crimped by slower growth in many consumer health product categories and by payers demanding bigger rebates off the prices of certain prescription drugs, Chief Financial Officer Dominic Caruso said in an interview. Caruso said drugs with significant competition, particularly cardiovascular, diabetes and other primary care drugs, were particularly hurt by the pricing pressure. “The diabetes market is very price sensitive, and (net) prices have been declining for some time,” Caruso noted. That’s why J&J has been exploring the sale of its diabetes care businesses, which make test strips and insulin pumps, but will continue selling diabetes pill Invokana, whose sales fell 13 percent in the quarter to $284 million. The New Brunswick, New Jersey-based company on Tuesday reported net income of $4.42 billion, or $1.61 per share, down from $4.46 billion, or $1.59 per share, a year earlier. Earnings, adjusted for one-time costs, came to $1.83 per share, six cents above Wall Street expectations. Revenue totaled $17.77 billion, up 1.6 percent but below Street forecasts for $18.01 billion. In late-morning trading, J&J shares dropped $4.62, or 3.7 percent, to $121.10.
