Supreme Court Death Penalty Case Focuses on Versed/Midazolam

The Supreme Court is going to weigh in on Versed as a lethal injection drug.  Due to several "botched" death penalty cases, the convicts and their lawyers are going to argue that the use of Midazolam constitutes cruel and unusual punishment, because the individual isn't unconscious at all and is cognizant of pain and suffering.

Again I ask, why, if this drug is not good enough for lethal injection, why is it good enough for patients?  Why are our medical workers using this torture drug?  Why are they so ADAMANT that they are allowed to use it, knowing that one of the problems with it is that the patient feels all of the pain associated with the procedure.  God help you if you don't get amnesia of the horror.  Anyway here is yet another article.

In light of this, why are the medical workers still using Versed on their patients?  Remember that this is only ONE of the reasons this drug should be banned for use on humans.
