Why not increase the amount of constructive activities available to prisoners, and make them compulsory if necessary? Skilled trades, education, etc? If they're becoming frustrated with nothing to do, then they clearly need to have their hands and minds more fruitfully occupied.

As opposed to training them to get stoned (if they're not already au fait with the art). I thought prison was touted as being corrective these days rather than punitive?

There’s lots of jobs prisoners could be doing but that would mean government making it happen. I remember years ago that prisoners used to be utilised around the Island. They should reinstate this asap
