Victor Conte's details hooker, coke, and roid access in prison

Controversial disgraced former steroid distributor turned anti-doping crusader Victor Conte recently appeared on "The Joe Rogan Experience."

Among the interesting topics covered was his estimate of the PED use rate in MMA, a discussion of conditions at the Taft Correctional Institution (near Bakersfield, CA), a privately-run minimum security federal prison with 1,700 inmates, where he served his four-month prison sentence.

"The first morning, when I woke up it was a kind of university-campus like setting," said Conte. "I walked out and in the middle of the courtyard was a huge sign that said 'Sports Complex.' Basketball, football, baseball, soccer, bocce ball, volleyball, handball. And I looked around and there were about 500 guys there. And they all had on equipment; there was a soccer game and a baseball game going on."

"I looked over I saw the rec center. And I walked over to that and looked in and there were six pool tables, six foosball tables, six ping-pong tables."

"Then I went through this door and there was this huge music department. Three different musical groups were practicing. I said, 'Do they have concerts here?'

'Oh yeah! We have a routine on Friday nights and the bands play concerts outside.'"

"This is my first 10 minutes -- I was on the compound I started walking with some guys around the walking track and I went [sniff] -- 'Are they smoking weed around here?' And they said, 'Yeah! You want some weed?'

"I said, 'Listen, I don't want anything to do that with this kind of stuff. I don't want to get in any more trouble that I'm already in.' But yeah, anything that you wanted -- alcohol -- any and every type was $25 for 8 ounces. They had meth, they had steroids, they had cocaine."

"There's no fences around the the place, about every 200 feet they have a sign on a stake that says 'Out of Bounds.' I got there on December 1 of 2005. That Christmas, about 25 guys just walked out on the freeway and they had their families pick them up and they left. So it's kind of an honor system."

"It didn't take me long to figure out, they had several really nice-looking female correctional officers there. You know, hair done up, big chest. It was kind of stunning to me. And they said 'Listen, you want some action?' I'm telling you the straight scoop. My understanding is on average they were making about $30,000 a month."

"This young kid came in that same first day I was there and my cubie was a guy named Evil. And he said 'Evil, I'm going to have to do something bad because I'm supposed to go home tomorrow.' And I said 'You're supposed to go home and you want to stay here?' He said, 'Yeah if I go home I've got to start paying rent!'"

Never heard that one before.......ever. That's like the biggest prison cliche ever, and if your guy said that for real then he is one phony motherfucker. He even managed to fuck it up, because the actual cliche used in the movies, on tv, by jokers on the street says you should choose the biigest guy on the range and walk up to him and kick his blah, blah, blah........

I can believe allot of it, hell in the county lockup here there soda machines, ice cream machine, microwave, and we got to do some cool shit, clearing fire lines, tared the roof of a county building, there is a pretty good sized garden. And every Friday night was movie night, complete with bag of popcorn each and a 2liter of Pepsi to share with your celly. the guards rented us pursuit of happiness once. That was fucked up all these "tough guys" sobbing over will fuckin smith. And snakes on a plane, that was way better.
