Prison inmates have gone commando, after a jail banned underwear deliveries in a desperate attempt to curb drug smuggling.

Inmates at the Franklin County Jail in Ohio are now being given the option to buy approved underwear at the prison commissary, or can choose the more liberating option and go without.

Speaking to the Columbus Dispatch, jail chief Geoff Stobart explained that officials often find drugs stashes in T-shirts or underwear, while marijuana and treatment for heroin addicts is secretly sewn into the underwear.

Now, the prison has approved a $95,000 contract with an outside clothing firm, who will provide prisoners with drug-free T-shirts, bras, socks, boxers and briefs.
