"Drugs were seized today by the DEA from our facility in Jackson," Department of Corrections spokeswoman Kristen Stancil told the AJC.
The seizure comes more than two weeks after an attorney representing a death row inmate from Cobb County wrote a letter to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder saying the Georgia Department of Corrections circumvented federal law in trying to quickly secure a scarce drug used in lethal injections.
"DEA did take control of the controlled substances today," DEA spokesman Chuvalo Truesdell told the AJC. "There were questions about the way the drugs were imported over here."
Truesdell declined further comment, saying it is now "a regulatory investigation."
Let us rationalize this.
The same attorney general who told California that he would no longer do raids on Marijuana distribution centers despite them being illegal according to federal law - chose to raid the State of Georgia's stock of drugs used to execute convicted murderers.
A convicted MURDERER who is in line to receive these drugs for having MURDERED someone wrote a letter to Eric Holder, warning him about the ILLEGAL actions of the State of Georgia in importing a controlled substance without going through the federal government.
