JM: Did you always have access to necessary medications? Rick: Yes, but I was only taking Medimucil.
JM: How did you get your medications? Rick: I had to go through a long process of seeing the
doctor and telling him what I needed then you
wait to see if they are going to give it to you.
For people on pain meds they would give you a
ziplock bag of meds that was supposed to hold you
over for a week or so. Instead they would sell
those and gobble up handfuls to get high.
JM: What types of punishments were incurred for abuse of drugs? Did you ever witness this? Rick: Mostly you just got extra work time in the
kitchen. They only really punished you if you
were caught slinging.
