The study was conducted at the women's prison in Kingston, Ontario, with the knowledge of the prison superintendent and federal corrections officials, the Ottawa Citizen reported. The newspaper said it obtained a report from Canada's correctional services department, completed in January, that described the tests as ``a risky undertaking.'' The report recommended that the Canadian government offer all the women used as unwitting guinea pigs a full apology and a settlement package, the newspaper said. But locating the women may prove difficult because investigators who wrote the report discovered that many inmate files were missing or had been destroyed. Investigators located two women who both complained of long-term effects - decades after their exposure to the hallucinogen, the Citizen said. Corrections officials declined immediate comment, saying they needed more time to assess the report.
