Fought Collins, Colorado - Experimental execution drugs for Death Row inmates have been approved by the State's legislature.
Colorado's Governor John Hickenlooper said this morning he'd been moved by harrowing testimony describing inmates' unconventional pharma needs following years of botched lethal injections of toxic crap.
Missquoting campaigning State Senator Irene Aguliar a Chickencooper spokesperson later commented that, 'When you're terminal, there's a drug out there that could help you'.
Today's announcement also sees the end of so-called Obamacare death panels whose right to prescribe end-of-daze stuff to incarcerated lifers has been vetoed on esthetic grounds.
The decision means a menu of narcotic cocktails becomes automatically available to Death Row 'clients' preferring to OD on abuse substance of choice rather than opt for outdated forms of execution like the electric chair or firing squad.
Meanwhile the State's wildly popular home-grown Death Row Weed marijuana becomes an opt-in item in federal incarceration compounds for anyone serving more than 20 years at taxpayers' expense.
