FDA: Texas lethal injection drugs must be destroyedor exported

( CNN) Execution remedies delivered to the Texas Department of Criminal Justice and the Arizona Department of Corrections must be refused and either destroyed or exported within 90 daylights, according to law documents filed on Thursday.

The FDA performed “a final decision, accepting admission of the detained remedies into the United States, ” said the agency in official documents are presented in federal law in Galveston, Texas.

In July 2015, the FDA imprisoned 1,000 vials of sodium thiopental connote for the Texas Department of Criminal Justice. Sodium thiopental, which also is referred to as ‘thiopental, ‘ is an anesthetic. Texas has abused this medication as one part of a lethal three-drug concoction which also included pancuronium bromide to induce paralysis, and potassium chloride to stop the heart when administered by insertion. The regime no longer relies on the three-drug combination for executions.
