I believe the recent Ohio execution used a derivative of morphine.

I'm not an advocate of capital punishment and I don't think the law entitles the condemned to a pain-free execution either. I haven't heard of a method that guarantees no pain at all, and since the death penalty is legal that means some pain is legal too.
