Interview with Pat and Sam

JM: Did you always have access to necessary medications?
Pat: some medications they'll hand out to everyone like lithium, prozac and things of that nature but no narcotics and people with chronic illnesses sometimes have alot of trouble getting what they need. Especially diabetics.
Sam: Medications were readily available if necessary.

JM: How did you get your medications?
Pat: A nurse comes to the pod 3 times a day with a cart full of drugs and if you get meds, you go to her.
Sam: Medications were usually carried by the nurse twice daily, but you could pick up certain medications to hold onto from the infirmary.

JM: What types of punishments were incurred for abuse of drugs? Did you ever witness this?
Pat: Some people would buy/sell their meds but its not to profuse because everything is non narcotic. some pills will help you sleep but even that is short lived.
Sam: Often times, people were found to abuse drugs, whether prescription or not. There were institutional charges given for these incidents, and I witnessed this many times.
