Re: “K2 in prison: widely available, difficult to detect and potentially deadly

Wow. Way to paint a bad picture of correctional staff that are dealing with these stresses everyday. There job is to keep the community safe, keep the inmates safe, and return to their families each night.
Inmates are getting K2 through the mail in liquid form. It is clear and sprayed on letters and cards, then dried and mailed. The smell is so faint, that it is nearly undetectable. Sometimes Officers who check the mail, accidently absorb these chemicals through their skin. Once the mail is inside, officers are subjected to the haze, and deal with unwanted 'contact high'. Yet these officers still show up to work regularly.
Always quick to point out the one officer who is a bad apple, but never fail to make the criminal look helpless. 99% Correctional Officers would love to be able to actually correct the actions of the men they babysit. Officers would love to release these men to the street knowing that they won't go commit a crime and end up right back in prison trying to find another way to get high. Officers would love to be able to control the drug use and not fear for their own safety everyday.
The next time you write an article, ask yourself what you would do when you see an inmate at the end of a hallway who is stoned on God knows what. He thinks he is a dog, and you are the mailman. He outweighs you by 100lbs, and all you have is pepper spray, that in his current state of mind, will have no effect.
