    Apparently the state wasn't completely on the up-and-up as to how it acquired its lethal injection drugs.

    Do I have this right?

    Georgia is importing drugs illegally to execute law-breaking citizens. Huh?

    The Georgia Department of Corrections appears to have violated the federal Controlled Substance Act,” John Bentivoglio, a former associate deputy U.S. attorney general in Washington, wrote in a letter Thursday.

    Bentivoglio describes extraordinary steps Corrections took to get the sedative thiopental, a scheduled III non-narcotic controlled substance, when a shipment for several states, including Georgia, was held by U.S. Customs in Memphis last summer.

    That sounds like drug smuggling to me.

    Who goes to jail here?

    So are they going to have to bring back the electric chair or start hanging people again?
