Drugs, Like How Your Gonna Smuggle Them To Him...escape...and I Don't Think I Would Slam The C.o.'s Too Much!

I Don't Know What State It Is, But I Recently Had A Tattoo Done And Sent Him The Pictures, He Got Them!

Although you meant it for ONLY him, it would get passed around and possibly get used for the wrong reasons as they said. Nothing (not a thing) is private there!

Am not sure that you can't mention that word when writing a letter. It was the picture you drew that made an officer look further and call it contraband. Usually, they do not have time to read the letters so don't worry too much about what you say. Is best to keep it all above board though so you don't get him into any trouble. Like not even joking about escape or drugs or anything they could object to.

Funny, I sent tons of pictures of my tat, from my rough sketch before I got it done to pictures taken while I was being inked and a few "after" shots when it was all healed up and there was never a problem....All those went to San Quentin, but I've never had anything returned and we talk about tats about once a month.

In general, don't discuss in your letters: Drugs, escapes, details of his case(it's allowed, just a really bad idea if he's still in appeals or scheduled for testimony in another case), if you write erotica for him, don't use any stories that involve unlawful acts, and be very leery of passing on any messages from co-defendants or other inmates.

I think it depends on what state your man is located in...
