Arizona has not executed any person on death row since Joseph Wood’s contentious execution in 2014. Despite this hiatus, Attorney General Brnovich has proposed that the state resume the practice. Specifically, preparations are being made to resume executions by lethal injection with an assurance that the necessary drugs have been secured. However, with the current state of the law, it is practically impossible to acquire legally the compounded drugs needed for humane executions by lethal injection.
