Execution's been postponed. (Pharma co. only wants their product used if it successfully kills people, I guess.)

Drug company lawsuit stalls Nevada inmate's opioid execution

A Nevada execution, which would have been the first in the US to use the synthetic opioid fentanyl, has been delayed by a judge.

Pharmaceutical firm Alvogen argued the state had illegitimately obtained one of its drugs and that the proposed drug combination was untested in executions.

The New Jersey-based drug company Alvogen said it does not want its drugs used in "botched" executions, according to court documents.
