its really hard to say , since i have never been. it would seem however that they are aloud to get out of hand quite a bit. i know people want to be politically correct and call it a correction facility instead of punishment, but i think this leads to people who do very bad things being kind of pampered. i think people should be "punished" for their crimes. and treated as such. obviously the punishment should fit the crimes. i dont want a pot head getting the same treatment as a rapist. but that another issue.
