Have people fought with sugar cubes?

I already feel sheepish for asking this. I have a French colleague who swore up and down that there are places (prisons? He was vague, we were drinking) where sugar cubes are banned, because they are used to cut people in fights. A supposed bonus is that the sugar makes resulting wound heal poorly.
This all sounds like the kind of BS I would be proud to make up myself, and it's surprisingly difficult to look up on Google.
Has anyone else heard of this? Because if it's a thing, that is nutty.
