Lethal Injection: Compounding the Problem

Rambo Tribble (1273454) writes | about a year ago


Rambo Tribble (1273454) writes "The Economist reports on the increasingly difficult time states are having obtaining drugs to implement lethal-injection executions. Many of the larger pharmaceutical houses will not or cannot provide the requisite drugs when destined for that purpose. As an alternative, the states are turning to compounding pharmacies. A shadowy marketplace is evolving, with attempts being made to hide the drugs' origins. Of course, lawsuits and legal maneuvers are flying thick and fast."

Just use siezed heroin for the executions. The police obtain more than enough of it every day, and people willingly shoot up with it so "cruel and unusual punishment" grounds can't really fly, and it has the propaganda value of saying "see, this stuff will kill you".
