Texas finds new supplier for lethal injection drugs « Hot Air

Texas finds new supplier for lethal injection drugs « Hot Air: "Amid dwindling support for capital punishment, one of the many challenges facing states that intend to carry out death sentences for inmates has been a lack of lethal injection drugs.  Companies that previously produced the drugs have been declining to sell them to states, citing ethical qualms and, occasionally, threats of harm. Just this week, an Oklahoma appeals court put two executions on hold because the state had run out of pentobarbital, the first drug in the typical three-drug cocktail used in lethal injections. Now Texas has announced that it has found a new supply of the drugs and the state is not telling where it got them."
