    Is this Prisoner a habitual user of the drugs ?
    Was her effort in the cause of a boyfriend in the N/A prison?
    Was she dealing drugs to the prison population for additional funds ?
    If there is a maximum sentence, then she should be enjoying that sentence at the
    pleasure of the State of Guyana- rent, food, security, health care, clothing- ALL FREE.
