So many citizens in prisons, so many mentally ill in prisons–do we administer anti-pyschotics to help them maintain a balanced life, or drug them into compliance? That’s the balance California prison medics are working with, and there’s no one-answer-fits-all. Sadly. In California, anti-psychotics “account for nearly $1 of every $5 spent on pharmaceuticals purchased for the state prison system, according to figures compiled by The Associated Press.” Please note: this story appeared in the Business Section of the Washington Post.
