What’s Next for Lethal Injection? Last Tuesday, the state of Ohio executed a death row inmate using a single drug method. No other state is currently using the technique. Do they know something Ohio doesn't?

Who's right and what's next for lethal injections? Join Regina Brett and guests, Friday at 9 on 90.3.
