Georgia Department of Corrections Using Compound Pharmacy for Execution Drug | WABE 90.1 FM

A new Georgia law protects the identity of the manufacturer or supplier of the state’s lethal injection drug, Pentobarbital.

It’s become difficult for many states to acquire the drug because some pharmaceutical companies that oppose the death penalty and have refused to sell to U.S prisons.

Georgia’s Department of corrections will use a compounding pharmacy for the scheduled upcoming execution of death row inmate Warren Lee Hill, Jr.

In documents WABE obtained thru open records request, a drug prescription for Hill was sent to a compounding pharmacy.
