#1 It would "work" just fine. Being as pharma grade stuff has been cited in deaths there's not much doubt about that. Problem is, the invitation to lawsuits is huge. How will the dept. of corrections ensure the seized illegal product is pure?

George Carlin once quipped, "You know, they use an alcohol swab on the arm before they give a lethal injection..."

#2 On the other hand MM, maybe it'll deter some potential users?

#3 Death Penalty Expert ? What... he serve at Birkenau or something ? How many executions can he have 'researched' ? Fentanyl overdose will easily put down anything, 1 mg for every 50 kg of body-weight.

Absolutely workable, poetic and economical idea. I'd support it just for the poetic.

#4 Why? Why do we have to use drugs at all?

I maintain that hanging people is good for everybody involved. It makes a dramatic statement, it is of cultural significance, it is easy to do when drug companies are being political creeps, and it doesn't require much prep. And it really isn't a comparatively cruel way to kill somebody.

#5 Maybe if fentanyl was used for executions China would suddenly decide to stop sending it for "human rights reasons." Nah, that's just crazy talk...

#7 Why not use the way of the PC Navaho of old. Put the felons head on a rock and crush it with a club. That way Coyote and the Ants get fed.
