If other states are lawfully using lethal injection, and by doing so are not in violation of the U.S. Constitution, then where on this planet is California?

Well unfortunately it isn't about 100 miles further west into the Pacific Ocean than it currently is. But maybe soon. Ok I'm just kidding. Lighten up.
You´re so right Jeff. But I heard since a few weeks there´s a tough supporter of the DP in Cali. I hope she´ll pushes the whole exevcution proces. Michael
"The Death Row expansion is a bottomless money pit," said state Sen. Jeff Denham, R-Atwater (Merced County)."We should use this opportunity, with the state running out of cash, to step back and rethink this project," said Assemblyman Jared Huffman, D-San Rafael, who joined Denham at a news conference in front of the aging Marin County prison. He referred to the project as a "Cadillac Death Row" and said many condemned inmates could be safely housed at other prisons during their decades of appeals.Denham, who supports capital punishment, has been trying for years to get the state to sell the buildings and grounds at San Quentin and build a new Death Row on cheaper land elsewhere.
