Interview with Charles, Rich, Kevin, Molly, Jeremy, Chad and Laura

JM: Did you always have access to necessary medications?

Molly: no
Jeremy: Yes
Chad: I got sick one time, and never got seen. I sent in multiple requests every day and finally got some sort of cold pill for two days
Laura: i couldnt walk in my cell amd get some tylenol if i needed it but i guess so

JM: How did you get your medications?
Charles: Pill line.
