Voices from the Inside takes readers into the cells of a maximum security prison to reveal the personal accounts of over sixty women that are incarcerated for drug crimes. The stories will shock and entertain, and will certainly help readers to see more than the statistics behind drug offenses. Research included in this book examines the history of prohibition in the United States, with special emphasis on alcohol and drug prohibition, and analyzes empirical data pertaining specifically to the incarceration of female drug offenders in Tennessee. Personal interviews with these women regard the criminal justice processes both before and after their incarceration. This book is a must-read for those seeking to understand the impact of current drug policies on individuals and the community, as well as why these policies are not working.
