Interview with Ray, Oscar and Marshall

JM: Did you always have access to necessary medications?
Ray: It's not like going to the medicine cabinet but you can get help. The biggest deterrent is the fact that you are charged $3 every time you need something. Some will wait it out.
Oscar: yes there is always that available in a facility like that.
Marshall: yes i personally always had access to all medications i needed to be taking

JM: How did you get your medications?
Ray: You sing up for sick call, when you go you may sit there for quite some time and sometimes not be seen at all.
Oscar: I got my medications prescribed but the medical dept. always messed up on the refills and the meds would come late
Marshall: through a doctor working there at hartford county i spoken to a psychiatrist and explained to them what i was taking etc.

JM: What types of punishments were incurred for abuse of drugs? Did you ever witness this?
Ray: "Random" urinalysis occures all the time with the intention of catching and intended target but not making it too obvious. If caught, an investigation began and others would be caught. Usually offenders would go to another holding area to be questioned. Sometimes new charges would be given.
Oscar: If you got caught abusing drugs you would get a class a infraction and be sent to rstrictive housing unit
Marshall: i didnt witness anyone being punished for the abuse of drugs but im sure its happened and theyd either be taking off the medication or watched taking them and put in the box
