Texas and compounding pharmacies: partners in crime

October 3, 2013 – Texas and compounding pharmacies: partners in crime

So here we are, Texas was bound to have an alternative supplier of Pentobarbital long before its expiring stock ran out. According the AP today, Texas’ new best friend is a compounding pharmacy in the suburbs of Houston.

Without any FDA supervision, independent pharmacists can prepare drugs. Now the true question is who signed this prescription? The American Medical Association has a clear position on the issue: no medical professional can participate or assist in the process of executing human beings.

Recently, several cases of drugs prepared by compounding pharmacies, which led to a number of deaths among its users, made the news. The US Congress and the FDA are taking a closer look. In the meantime, death row prisoners in Texas are becoming guinea pigs in the name of justice.

Although pharmacists do have a code of ethics one wonders, who in this profession accepts to knowingly kill human beings for money?


Take a stand against and raise your voice against the use of lethal injection in human executions. Thank you!

About The Pentobarbital Experiment

"Lundbeck is a global pharmaceutical company engaged in the research and development, production, marketing and sale of drugs for treatment of psychiatric and neurological disorders." As the sole supplier of Pentobarbital to US departments of corrections, Danish company Lundbeck took an active and dedicated part in the executions of human beings. This is a clear violation of its ethical obligations as a European pharmaceutical laboratory. Its manufacturing plant for Pentobarbital is based in Kansas, USA. Here is the full story: the facts and the numbers brought to you by European activists dedicated to the universal abolition of the death penalty. Disclaimer: This blog was created to raise awareness and to encourage legitimate citizen actions to bring an end to the torturous executions in the USA. It does not, and never did advocate violence or retaliation against whoever participates in the legal lynchings of human beings. View all posts by The Pentobarbital Experiment
