.@AGMarkHerring: Virginia can buy lethal-injection drugs in secret

Virginia can obtain lethal-injection drugs through a secret process, according to a ruling by Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring (@AGMarkHerring) released Tuesday night. Many states have faced a shortage of the drugs in recent years. The ruling allows the state to purchase drugs from compounding pharmacies, which are like boutique drug manufacturers.
