A video showing an inmate vaping during a jail visitation has gone viral on social media, but not for the reasons you might think. The video, which was recorded at an unknown jail, shows the person visiting the inmate taking a puff from his vape and blowing it through the holes in the glass that people usually talk through.
The inmate was able to inhale the smoke by pressing his lips against the other side of the glass, while his friend with the vape pressed his lips against the other side while blowing out the smoke. The video was uploaded on YouTube by a user named P NO, who has 36.1K subscribers. The footage which is only eight seconds long has attracted over 1.2 million views and thousands of comments.
The video has sparked jokes and reactions from users who found the scene amusing or touching. Some users said that they basically kissed each other indirectly, while others praised their friendship and loyalty. Some users also wondered how they did not get caught by the guards, or how they managed to smuggle the vape into the jail.
Some of the funny comments seen around the web in reaction the video were, “When you miss your homie so much you vape with him through the glass”, “This is how you show your loyalty in jail”, “Who needs a girlfriend when you have a vape buddy in jail?”.
The video has raised questions about the security and supervision of jail visitations, as well as the health risks of vaping. Vaping is a form of electronic device that produces aerosol by heating a liquid that usually contains nicotine or THC, along with flavorings, and other chemicals. Vaping can expose users to harmful substances such as metals, volatile organic compounds, and ultrafine particles that can be inhaled into the lungs.
