Yes they can get 2 cartons a month, but they must have the NYS stamp.

That is the allotted amount they can get. You can send I believe 12 oz of loose tobacco or he can get it from commissary.

You said you needed money for your kids!
That’s like sending him $100.
The pattern he is following is exactly as described to you by Ginger.
Send a few packs if you must, but stop putting your abuser’s needs before your children. Please I implore you.

Conversion rate. I believe they said "it's like sending him $100". If he's using in prison, he'll trade his own skin for his habit. But for now he'll use yours.
But it looks as though your question has been answered.

Girl you lost your job and have children to support. Sending ONE cigarette to some asshole in prison who doesn’t even like you is the height of irresponsibility. Do you have a mom? An aunt, sister, friend who can take you by the shoulders and shake some sense into you?

Is he eligible for the early release due to Covid? If so, very well could be for that then!

Usually your receipt has the tracking number. Overall, mail can depend on many factors right now not just the prison.
