Have you tried calling the facility and asking? Just curious.

Probably the same reason I can't send cards to mine in the past the prison has found drugs in side of the cards between the paper.
I know it sucks but I have to deal with it

I think @upsetspouse is right. My friend's husband confirmed it. I think a lot of the Louisiana facilities stopped accepting greeting cards except for the Police Barracks. It sucks but it comes along with the territory...always something new to seemingly make it harder on us.

I don't think it's something to make it harder on us. I think it's numnuts on the outside who think they can get away with mailing contraband to a prison using a not so clever disguise. It's people like that who make it harder on those of us who abide by the rules.
