Medications in jail is a real issue, I have heard of a few other people I know having this problem - apparently the jails don't let you take your prescribed medications while you are in them.
It could be really dangerous for someone to suddenly change their medication doses when going to jail. It would happen to me, for example - I'm autistic and a few other things and on medications for it.

This is very odd, the few times I was in jail I was able to get the meds i was prescribed with no problem. Heck, my buddy bought my bottles from my house and dropped them off at the jail and they gave them to me, no questions asked. They gave my own personal meds til they ran out then got the stuff from the dr.
Dunno what jails yall were dealing with, but this was in Florida and NC, and in both cases my meds werent refused, and were allowed to take my own personal meds bought from home.

That's terrible, she was much worse off than I. There's no way to get the jailers to be fair, the only recourse is having a lot of money and a passion for going after people who've mistreated you/others. Then you can hire a lawyer and take the allegations to court. The jailers really don't like that, but it happens so little, they don't let it stop them.
