The lethal drugs used in many states are hard to obtain, and in some cases, illegal. This has caused most executions to be post-poned. In Oklahoma, Richard Glossip's execution was stopped again, for the third time.
“Until we have complete confidence in the system, we will delay any further executions,” Gov. Mary Fallin said about this.
Other states have done the same out of concern for the legality and propper procedure for the drugs. In less than two months, Missouri is scheduled to execute Ernest Lee Johnson by lethal injection.
