Prison Bans Visitors From Wearing Tampons

The warden of a Virginia prison has announced a new policy banning women visiting inmates from wearing tampons or menstrual cups. The warden at the Nottoway Correctional told visitors and inmates in a letter that the policy comes from concerns that the feminine hygiene products could be “an ideal way to conceal contraband.”

It could not immediately be determined if the policy applies to all prisons in Virginia. A spokeswoman for the state Department of Corrections did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
