  1. Its a little ironic to have such a hardline on legal drugs when illegal drug use appear to be sanctioned by the blind eye or ignorance as it keeps the unofficial hierarchy in place enabling those in power (management) to deal directly with the one who holds such influence by way of drug supply. I know of incidences when prisoners have been given special treatment and moved around due to their ability to keep things good amongst the other prisoners. Is this relatively unusual ? I hope so but fear it is not.

    • I think Corrections is now pretty tough on illegal drugs as well. They conduct random drug testing and over the years, the number of prisoners testing positive has dropped dramatically. Positive drug tests mean prisoners are unlikely to get parole – so there’s big incentives not to use in prison.
