Interview with Jen, Karen and Will

JM: Did you always have access to necessary medications?
Jen: NO they would charge you outrageous prices for even an aspirin
Karen: If was very difficult to get any kind of medical attention.
Will: yes

JM: How did you get your medications?
Jen: a nurse would come at 7am to give them to you
Karen: I was not prescribed medicine at that time but there was a nurse that would come by with a cart to give inmates their medicine.
Will: They brought them to my cell at 5am and 9pm. The rest of the pod had to stand by the main door and the nurse would hand their out through a slot in the door.

JM: What types of punishments were incurred for abuse of drugs? Did you ever witness this?
Jen: never came across that one except in booking and it added up to an extra charge for that person
Karen: The inmate would be put in the hole for punishment. I did not ever witness this, but I know there were drugs being 'sold'.
Will: no
