Welcome Rikki - Glad you found us. Renee was kind enough to post a link to the relevant commissary page for your State.

Commissary items can usually only be purchased by the inmate from supplies at the prison. The markup on commissary items (everything from personal grooming items, food to electronics in some places) is used to support inmate related programs. There is usually a pretty restricted list of what people can have. Anything not on that list is considered contraband by the facility.
