Interview with Clinton and Brooke

JM: Did you always have access to necessary medications?
Clinton: They basically have medication times where they come through and give everybody meds all at once. They were pretty on top of that. If you had a medical complaint, you would have to fill out a request to be seen. They prioritize according to seriousness.
Brooke: No, I requested seeing a nurse and they said I didn't need one. They said the nurse was for serious problems like splitting your head open.

JM: How did you get your medications?
Clinton: They come around at different times of the day to hand out meds.
Brooke: You were release from the "pod" to the guard post and given the medication through a window. You were asked to show your mouth after words.

JM: What types of punishments were incurred for abuse of drugs? Did you ever witness this?
Clinton: Anything from taking away good time, putting them in solitary or max security, to giving them a separate charge.
Brooke: I once saw a girl get tazed, strapped in a chair and a net thrown around her head. They said it kept her from spitting. She needed it I think though.
