Interview with Ron, Tiffany, Hugh and Stevan

JM: Did you always have access to necessary medications?
Ron: no
Tiffany: I will relate my OWN experience here. I was offered twice by medical staff medications. I asked what they were giving me and was explained they have 100s of patients and they can't keep track of them all. I found this VERY unprofessional and I refused the meds they wanted to give me. If they can't tell me what pill they are providing, then I won't take it. Other inmates enjoyed the fact that many times other's medications were given to them. I guess some enjoy anything to pass the time on something to make you sleep or make you feel high. There was also alot of trading of meds between the inmates.
Hugh: I never took any medications.
Stevan: no not always u had to prove were on it

JM: How did you get your medications?
Ron: you had to sigh up for it .
Tiffany: A nurse would come to your pod, escorted by a deputy and the meds were in a small envelope.
Hugh: They had medical staff (I hope)bring pills to people with regular conditions in the morning and evening before meal times.
Stevan: U got the meds once in the morn and again in the evening the guard would bring the nurse in

JM: What types of punishments were incurred for abuse of drugs? Did you ever witness this?
Ron: time was taken from you in the form of a write up.
Hugh: I think the improper use of medication was a six month addition to your sentence, but it could turn in to another charge. Same with street drugs. Never seen any one use, most keep it pretty quiet.
Stevan: I never wtness any thing lik . That it all was pretty much supervised if,it ever happened I neve saw it
