Red herring, but I'll answer your implied argument by saying that the death penalty is supposed to be 1) a deterrent and 2) a way of removing extremely dangerous people from society.

Please cite me the part of the federal food, drug, and cosmetic act which says they have the authority. They have jurisdiction over the following: food, drugs, medical devices, food additives, and dietary supplements.
Naturally, the kneejerk progressives already modded down my post... so thanks for responding, instead.
