Notes of Decisions

Evidence, inter alia, that two grams of marijuana were prized pos­ses­sion likely to be subject of conten­tion between jail inmates was insufficient to es­tab­lish that marijuana was "contraband" within meaning of this sec­tion. State v. Franklin, 283 Or 439, 583 P2d 557 (1978)

Informa­tion alleging that jail inmate possessed marijuana was sufficient to charge viola­tion of this sec­tion. State v. Meyer, 283 Or 449, 583 P2d 553 (1978)

Legislative declara­tion that contraband "means any article or thing...whose use would endanger the safety and security" of correc­tional and juvenile facilities and state hospital, as well as per­sons in those institu­tions, is constitu­tionally sufficient directive to state and local agencies given power to issue rules and orders defining contraband. State v. Long, 110 Or App 599, 823 P2d 1031 (1992), aff'd 315 Or 95, 843 P2d 420 (1992)

Where defendant does not control act of introducing contraband into correc­tional facility, defendant's voluntary acts resulting in unknowing introduc­tion of contraband by an­oth­er do not create liability. State v. Getzinger, 189 Or App 431, 76 P3d 148 (2003)
