Six New York City jail guards and 15 others were charged with taking thousands of dollars in bribes to smuggle drugs to inmates at Rikers Island jail complex. The scheme had been under investigation since early 2019 and involved guards sneaking a smartphone, marijuana and other drugs into the jail complex.

I wonder what the legalization of drugs will mean for inmates in prisons and jails? In this case the guards should be fined their drug profits and lose their jobs.
