Default Question about writing to inmate at Brevard County Jail

Does anyone have a loved one at this facility? I have a question about writing to an inmate there. The rules state:

"You may only send single colored pre-postage paid postcards no larger than 4X6 inches in measurement. Nothing may be affixed to the postcard nor may there be any substances such as glue, perfume, paint, watercolor, lipstick, etc."

I feel like this is a dumb question, but does this mean postage stamps can't be used? And if so, what do I do instead?

Edited to say- I haven't found postcards with the postage included, so if anyone knows where to find them, it would be super helpful!

I think they sell them at the post office with postage already stamped on there.

I tried to help Nurse and I can't find them at the US PS on-line store.

Personally, I think it is a scam by the jail to get people to stop sending mail at all.
