The drug was from an unidentified foreign drug supplier.

On Thursday, the US Food and Drug Administration told Texas and Arizona that over a thousand vials of drugs they ordered for executions in their states would not be released to them. the Texas Department of Criminal Justice and the Arizona Department of Corrections ordered sodium thiopental from India in 2015. "As such, the shipments must be exported or destroyed", FDA spokeswoman Lyndsay Meyer said in a statement.

La paz de Venezuela es permitir que todos podamos votar — Julio Borges
El gobernante socialista vinculó con los arrestados a dirigentes opositores como el diputado Richard Blanco . Horas antes, en Caracas , un joven de 17 años murió tras recibir un impacto de arma de fuego en la cabeza.

Texas has carried out 542 lethal injections since 1982, including four this year, and has used the sedative pentobarbital for executions since 2012.

Sodium thiopental hasn't been used in an execution in Texas or the rest of the country since 2011, when the only USA manufacturer stopped selling it because of its use in executions.

According to the lawsuit, the state's use of the drug falls within a "law enforcement" exemption, is not for patient use and is labeled as not for patient use. The drug is exclusively used by law enforcement as part of enforcing lawfully imposed capital sentences through lethal injection, Paxton asserted.

"It has taken nearly two years for the Food and Drug Administration to reach a decision which we believe is flawed", Jason Clark, a spokesman for the department, said in a statement.

TDCJ spokesman Jason Clark said after the ruling that the department is "exploring all options to remedy the unjustified seizure".

The FDA tentatively decided in April 2016 that the seized drugs couldn't be imported, but no final decision was made until Thursday. In January, Texas sued the agency for what it said was an "unreasonable delay" in deciding if the drugs could be delivered to the state.
