Default Are marker/color pencil drawings allowed to sent to California prison?

Hello, just a quick question...are we allowed to send drawings that were done w marker or crayons/colored pencils into a prison? Just wondering since my daughter draws so much and Id like to send her dad some of her work. Thanks

Hello!
In NJ where my man is, his niece sent him a crayon drawing and they didn't let him have it. They gave him a photo copy. I would call the facility and ask just in case

It depends on the system, and the actual prison's rules. Ask your inmate to find out what is allowed there.

crayons seem to be a no no.
colored pencils seem to be ok, but for sure, I'd check prior to sending anything.
It would be a shame for it to be returned.

You can have her draw it and make a color copy of it and mail that if you want.

People melt drugs into the crayons, which is why it is a no no.

Every facility is different it's best to call first to be sure what's allowed. I've never had a problem sending things to my guy in color pencils. He has also sent me things in color pencils. I'm not sure bout markers I've never sent anything in marker. But I've sent things in gel pens without any problems.
