Because the EU won't sell it to American prisons anymore.
Sheldurrr is correct; the CNN video said two drugs, they briefly considered using two drugs, and other states are now using two drugs, but it was actually three used yesterday: http://m.motherjones.com/mojo/2014/0...-drug-protocol
There's a nation wide propofol shortage. Won't happen. Also since it's short acting and rapidly reversable, poor choice when vein patently may be an issue.
Honestly, why the fuck can't we just give them a massive dose of fentanyl? Let the cocksuckers go out on a high note.
Edit, Randy bait: shit, I was on 2mg of dilaudid every 2 hours last time I was in the hospital. I would be a hard one to kill via lethal injection.

Yes, it's short acting but apnea is easily induced even at "therapeutic" doses, never mind a generously calculated overdose.
Vein patency should never be an issue when the state decides to end the life of one of it's citizens.
your really enjoying that.
Opposed to capital punishment. No exceptions.
C'mon, I'm from Massachusetts.
Wouldn't take that long.
To die completely, yeah it would. Opiate death is not quick, even when it's a LOT of opiate. It's not like in the movies, you slowly--but peacefully--asphyxiate as your breaths just get shallower and shallower.
And yes, there is an injectable form. Have had it post op in the past. Given in very small doses though, measured in mcg as opposed to mg.

1000 mg =1,000,000 micrograms.
That's enough Fentanyl to induce respiratory arrest for a platoon of junkies.

Santasutt is an actual doctor, by the way.

I don't necessarily think the old Barb/Succ/kcl method was perfect but it was effective. Fucking pansies.
...maybe he's just an anesthesiologist or something...
Maybe they should just shoot them in the head, like someone said earlier. I am completely against capital punishment, but if they are going to do it, they should do it as quickly and painlessly as possible. This latest botched death was so awful.
