2. Because raging headaches and puking would be cruel and unusual

and they're an integral part of CO poisoning.

I don't know why they're so wedded to the 3 drug idea, it's really, really stupid. Along with that, midazolam is probably the worst sedative they could have decided on, it's duration of action is very short and there's so much futzing around at an execution that the victim is usually wide awake as he suffocates. Lovely.

An OD of fentanyl all by itself would do the job well but they're terrified their victim might have a moment of pleasure before he's knocked cold by it and then dies.
