The unpaid rite of passage known as the internship has evolved under pressure and lawsuits, and now many organizations pay all interns for their work. The U.S. Senate will soon follow suit.
In April, Maryland announced a statewide policy change severely restricting books coming into prisons, including those sent from from family, friends, or ordered from outside vendors like Amazon. The ban was aimed at curbing contraband entering the state’s prisons, including nearly undetectable drugs sent in the pages of books. The backlash was immediate, and under pressure from advocates and the ACLU, prison officials have reversed course on the ban. We explore the legal issues with such bans, along with the challenges prison officials have in addressing drugs entering prisons.
