Or perhaps drugs in food is more appropriate. Item: Bringing burrito behind bars bombs.

SANTA FE, N.M. – A woman who brought a burrito to a friend in jail has been accused of using the burrito to try to smuggle in heroin. Rosemary Gonzales, 42, is charged with bringing contraband into a place of imprisonment. Bond was set at $5,000.

Corrections officers found a hypodermic needle inside the burrito that Gonzales brought Tuesday to a female inmate at the Rio Arriba County jail, according to a report filed in Rio Arriba County Magistrate Court.

Does Mexican food make you sleepy? This kind would.

Item: Munching McDonalds makes for munchies.

LOS LUNAS, N.M. – Three workers at a Burger King restaurant were arrested after two Isleta tribal police officers discovered that the hamburgers they ordered were sprinkled with marijuana.

The Isleta Police Department officers ate about half of their burgers Sunday before discovering marijuana on the meat. The officers used a field test kit to confirm the substance was pot, then went to a hospital for a medical evaluation.

No word on whether the officers were hungrier after they ate. Notice that both stories are out of New Mexico. What in the heck is going on down there?

Item: Pint pot of pistachio pot?

MARIANNA, Fla. – The ice cream container had a green substance in it, but it wasn't pistachio. Jackson County's sheriff's office said a woman was arrested Sunday for trying to bring marijuana hidden in an ice cream container to an inmate.

Lacheral Williams, 27, was charged with the introduction of contraband to a correctional facility after she was searched by an employee at Sunland Pathways, sheriff's Major John Dennis said.

Authorities said they found "a green leafy substance" in a pint-sized ice cream container Williams had brought with her when she came to visit a resident of the forensic unit for developmentally disabled offenders.

Well, at least this one wasn't in New Mexico. We have a trifecta.

    Prisons are now allowing visitors to bring in items to inmates? I worked in an institution in Alaska and the only items allowed in were through commissary purchases. Even then, sometimes, friends and relatives would get to the retail outlet and we would find drugs hidden in tennis shoes.

    These all sound as if they occurred in county jails – rules at those vary wildly.
