Talking Smuggling contraband into prison

Have any of you ever smuggled some weed into your men and gotten away with it.... my baby would do anything for some, he told me how i could do it a while back, but I'm not sure I want to attempt that.... i was just thinking of getting him something for xmas that he hasnt had in nearly a month.... it's probably a really dumb though, but either way thought I would ask!

He has asked me about smuggling in tabacco. I always say I'll try but with not full intentions on doing it.
#1 I don't want to get caught and banned from my visits
#2 I don't want him getting caught and being fired from his job, and sent to the "hole", he needs all the good time he can get.

First of all why would you even want to attempt that? Not sure where your man is but in California that is a felony and you will be sitting in another prison with no communication. Why would you post that on this website when CO's from all prisons come on here?+
I enjoy my freedom way to much tpo sneak something in. That's just me though.

Erin~
You are going to do what you are going to do, but please remember that taking drugs in to a prison is a crime.
Not to mention, when things like this happen, it changes the rules for all of us. If everyone brings in drugs, sooner or later- we wouldn't even get a chance at contact visits and such.
He can live without his weed, it's not going to kill him. Afterall, it's been a month so far! If you want to get him something for Christmas- how about a nice book?

Please don't go and do something silly that could effect the rest of us in the future.

I haven't even read what anyone else has said but let me tell you off hand from experience as it is something that I am still dealing with every day.......DON'T DO IT, DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT IT AND IF YOUR MAN LOVED YOU HE WOULDN'T EVEN ASK YOU TO RISK THAT......I was with someone who did that and I went to jail for 8 days, over a $1000 in fines and 2 years probation subject to random home visits, drugs tests and breathalizers any time they feel like it I was looking at 5 years in prison over some weed, not only that but I am 26 can't visit my own family in prison anymore, have an FBI number and a felony on my record.....I could have lost my daughter, my family and my freedom because of someone else's mess up.....I lost all contact with someone I love very much until my probation is done, and worst of all this felony I have now screws me anytime I go for a job because people automaticlly think I did something wrong, or I am a bad person. If I could go back and redo the day that ruined my life I would in a heartbeat.......Like JustLisa said you are going to do what you want but just think if you do it and get caught which you will cause someone will narc him off, you will lose not only all your visits and contact with him but you could go to jail....I am just telling you this from my own experience and I live with this everyday and what makes it hurt the most is I lost a man I really love until DEC.2006 and I had to hear my daughter on the phone while I was in jail say "mommy please come home from jail, I promise I will be a good girl!" you will never know how much that broke my heart, and it wasn't until that, that I even cried. I had never been in trouble before, and now I am have a felony for life because of a choice someone else made for me without asking me. You don't have to listen to me but I hope you make the right decision, and if you don't well you can't say you weren't warned.....

Since this is a support site and I can't tell you what I truly think, let me say this. We support you either way on your decision to either commit a felony or think clearly. Maybe we can get a family member of yours to sign up and tell us how your doing in prison and if it was worth it. ((((HUGS))))

I don't support her either way for doing or thinking of doing something so incredibly stupid that would ruin it for hundreds of people who have contact visits. I will give support when someone truly needs.

NO NO NO and NO! Don't risk your freedom as well,not only could you get in big trouble but he could get in even more trouble.In my personal opinion asking you to do something like that shouldn't even have been a thought in his head let alone asked out loud.

Default weed idea

why would you try to break the law again and possibly get him more time? patience and deferred gratification it's not at all worth the risk is it?

Erin,

When I was in I met a young woman, about 22-23 who smuggled drugs into her boyfriend. Yes she was a CO that fell in love with an inmate at the men's unit, he asked her to smuggle drugs in when she came in for her shift.

She is doing 25 years, they slam visitors who smuggle in drugs at visitation just as hard here.

So, if you decide to do this, when you hear the doors pop, remember the sound for sooner or later, usually sooner, you are going to get caught, and you will hear that sound for quite a long time.

Think about it. He has lost his freedom, are you willing to lose yours?

Plus he obviously has no respect for you or he would never have asked you to risk the rest of your life.

dont do it. trust me u will regret it in the long run and besides he is not suppose to get all that he want and need...the man is in prison. he should be thinking about making changes in his life and becoming a better person than can u smuggle some dro in for me?

i one time, carried in some oreo cookies...lol now i know that seems crazy but yo, i didnt care i was sweating and nervous. i mean i dont make it a habbit to break the law..needless to say i couldnt give it to him even though i got it in because i realize that it is wrong. and i damn sure wasnt going to loose my visiting priveldges, get fined, or face jail for carrying in some damn cookies!... i told his chunky ass that he will have to wait till his xmas package comes in to get it the RIGHT way.... i dont know it was dumb but i figure id share my story...

bottom line its not worth it. dont risk your own freedom for something that is wrong in the first place.

Oh my God !!! First of all I would be PISSED that he was even thinking about drugs !!!!! That's just an easy way to add time if you get caught and you know he would sooner or later. Second for him to ask you to do it he must not care about you very much . I know that sounds bitchy but doesn't he care he could lose visits with you ? Phonecalls? Doesn't he care you could end up with a bid of your own ? Doesn't he care he could end up with more time and not come home to you any sooner ? All those risks and for some weed !!!????? OH HELL NO !!!!!!
If it was a life neccessary thing like an asthma inhaler or insulin or allergy medication something life dependent then maybe I'd take a risk like that and I would really be stressed about thinking about it. But for some weed ? PLEASE !!!!

all I can say is ARE YOU F*ing CRAZY? I'm sorry but if my guy asked me to do that for him, that would be my last visit! I think you need to think more about the felony that you will have if you get caught, and less about him going without weed while he's in prison. Not only will you go to jail, but you will NEVER be able to visit him again! Look at what happened to JustChendy, and listen to her! Don't do it! ~Gabby~

I had a hard time sleeping last night after reading this and answering it because knowing I go through this daily is so hard, you have no idea. Girl I suggest that you really truly consider the consequences of your actions cause not only will you hurt yourself, your family, "your boyfriend", but everyone else who visits their loved ones where ever he is.......no I don't make any excuses for my actions, but this is one I do make an excuse for because I didn't make a choice other then to trust someone I thought was a friend, had I known what was going to go down, I wouldn't have been there. Your man isn't going to die without getting high and if he does well then he isn't a strong as he thought he was, and if he needs it that bad he needs rehab even more......just my opinion

He has a big drug problem if he is willing to risk your freedom for his high.

I would be rethinking the relationship.

Don't Do It Its Not Worth It And I Know You Might Love Him But Think Of Yourself I Think 9 Out Of 10 Men Ask Thier Mate To Do This Including Me In The Beginning I Was Asked And I Said No Hell No You Have To Be Up Front And Now My Husband Tells Me I'm Glad You Told Me No I Don't Want Anybody Weak Just To Do What I Say And He Respects Me More For That At First He Thought I Was Crazy To Tell Him No Cause In The Past He Got His Way But By Doing What They Say Gives Then Too Much Control. So Tell Him No You'll Be Glad You Did.... Suggestion You Should Of Ask This Question A Different Way Like Maybe My Husband Ask Me This? Or He Wants Something I'm Not Sure About WE CAN'T TALK ABOUT CERTAIN THING Cause Its Against Pto Rules... Just My Fyi

I hope you don't think this man loves you. Why would he put you in jeopardy to have some weed? He wouldn't be seeing me again.

well, there's your answer. I could see how it could come up in a lighthearted conversation with no intention of really doing it (some of the things we have talked about doing to the courthouse I won't mention!!!) and that might not be enough to question the whole relationship. But I guess you get the drift that it's a TERRIBLE idea.

There is no reason to get upset with anyone, you asked us and we gave our opinions and some of own personal situations......besides I am pretty sure that if someone had done it and gotten away with it they wouldn't say it on here.......and I am sorry but if he said it as a joke he did that to see how you would react, cause he does want you to do it. Like we have all told you do what you want, but don't except anyone to be supportive to do something illegal

I know that you are asking a question... has anyone gotten away with it???

Well, let me tell you the number of times that people have not! Is an illegal Christmas gift worth you landing in prison?

The last visit that I was on, all was normal, and then there was a rush of CO's that seemed to come from nowhere !!! They were banging on the airlock door to get out towards the parking lot... they found drugs on one of the Prisoners leaving the visiting room and they detained his wife in the parking lot until the police arrived. She was taken away. They have video of the pass in the visiting room. Proof that it was her. This was two months ago - where do you think that she is now?

There is a mindset here that troubles me - getting away with something does not make it right or increase YOUR chances of also getting away with it. Passing contraband in any visiting room - contraband of any kind - makes EVERYONE's visit more difficult and the rules always become stiffer becasue of these attempts and successes at passing contraband. One day, the prison system will completely ban contact visits in every level of prison and put us all behind glass if people don't stop trying to get away with something.

This is an opinion not intended to bash anyone - it is simply an opinion that was enraged by a simple question.

I am happy to hear that you were just asking a casual question and not seriously thinking about it! As you can see from our reaction, we all feel it would be a horrible mistake.
