JM: Did you always have access to necessary medications?
Mish: If i needed them
Sally: ALWAYS... HMMM NO I DIDNT NEED THEM
Pace: Yes and No. If you made sick call you got your meds. If you didn't good luck.
Baby: Not in the loop only after I finally got a cell but they never would tell me what they where they just said swallow it and show me your tongue. Then I was released without them. So I still have no idea what the hospital gave me released to them for me or what I took I just know I had med call 4 times a day
Jamie: hell no
Jessica: yes
Manuel: no dont never get sick in there all they do is drug you up
Raella: yes
LKai: If you had any medical problems, that would be assessed through the processing part of jail. So then they would give you your meds every morning/night.
Josie: no
George: All I needed was my inhaler, and yes.
Terry: MED CALL IS 2 3 TIMES DAILY AND ALWAYS ACCESSIBLE.
Miles: I never had prescriptions or medication.

JM: How did you get your medications?
Mish: By requesting to see the nurse
Sally: DIDNT TAKE ANY
Pace: Nurse call
Baby: medication call the yell your name over a loud speaker and then un lock your door you run to get in line then take it stick out your tongue run back to your cell to get locked in
Jamie: its a long slow prosses
Jessica: a nurse distributes medications 4 or 5 times throughout the day
Manuel: in your unit from the nurse
Raella: med call morning and night. doors would open and everyone stands in line waiting to get meds from nurse through a slot in the door. Have to take meds, then open mouth to show you've swallowed them.
LKai: They would call for your number and you line up to get your meds. You take it in front of the guards.
Josie: self carry
George: My wife was allowed to drop it off, and it lasted the entire time since it was an emergency inhaler rather than a maintenance inhaler.
Terry: I DID NOT TAKE ANY MEDICATION, BUT JAIL NURSES PUSH A CART AROUND FROM CELL TO CELL GIVING MEDS TO LISTED INMATES.
Miles: Not sure how because I never took any, but I remember inmates being called out to the deputy tower for medication.

JM: What types of punishments were incurred for abuse of drugs? Did you ever witness this?
Mish: I don't know
Sally: NEVER SAW BUT I IMAGINE ANOTHER CASE IF CAUGHT
Pace: Don't know never abused
Baby: I have no idea
Jamie: the hole plus a new charge
Jessica: loss of dayroom or time added to your sentence
Manuel: new charges and the hole
Raella: If you're in jail because of drug charges, you are the lowest of the low. The deputies will treat you as if you are still on drugs and anytime you make a mistake or do not follow directions, they will yell at you for being a tweeker, crackhead, etc.
LKai: I'm not sure.
Josie: idk
George: Tobacco was the most common drug for which punishments occurred, and in most cases the punishments involved "searching" the dorm and making a mess of everyone's stuff and occasionally restricting access to the dayroom.
Terry: PUNISHMENT FOR USE OF DRUGS WERE...DISCIPLINARY REFERRALS AND OR ADDED CHARGES. THAT RESULTED IN GAIN TIME BEING TAKEN, MORE TIME ADDED TO SENTENCE. I NEVER WITNESSED PERSONALLY.
Miles: I never observed this type of behavior, but I'm sure there were stiff penalties for abusing the medications provided to inmates.
