D.C. Del. Walter E. Fountroy yesterday announced a series of measures that have "the aim of rooting out drug trafficking and drug use at Lorton Reformatory." Fountroy said his plan was in response to a current Washington Post series that has described how visitors on occasion have taken illegal drugs to Lorton inmates. 

As a result of Knight's reporting on the ways in which Lorton inmates get illegal drugs, a plan to root out drug trafficking to the institution is announced.
