I was wondering the other day who are the most notorious criminals serving life inside the Super Max Prison known as the ADX in Florence Colorado. There are 4 prisons located in that complex with over 3,000 total prisoners. However, only 382 are assigned to the ADX. The inmate's life inside the ADX is a whole lot like living in an average bathroom. They do get a small tv with very limited channels.

Just a two-hour drive from Denver, 376 of the United States’ most notorious criminals are held at the country’s only federal supermax prison, the U.S. Penitentiary Administrative Maximum Facility—otherwise known as the ADX.

As of mid-July, Colorado gained yet another infamous resident, when Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, the leader of Mexico’s Sinaloa drug cartel, was relocated here after being sentenced to life plus 30 years on international drug trafficking charges earlier in the month.

The 37-acre compound, located on the outskirts of the old mining town of Florence in Fremont County, was opened in November 1994 and houses many of the country’s most high-profile inmates, including those convicted of federal high crimes and deemed too violent to live among a general prison population.

Prisoners at the ADX—we’re talking bombers, serial killers, terrorists, mobsters, cult leaders, and drug kingpins—live in near-continuous solitary confinement, spending 23 or more hours a day isolated in soundproof, one-man cells that are only 7-by-12 feet, with a small, four-inch slit for a window.
