Execution protocol trial, Senator Inhofe election challenge, "magic mushrooms" and more

This Week in Oklahoma Politics, KOSU's Michael Cross talks with Republican Political Consultant Neva Hill and Civil Rights Attorney Ryan Kiesel about a trial over Oklahoma's execution protocol coming to an end and a challenge against the special election to fill the seat getting vacated by U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe.

The trio also discusses the State Health Department ending its daily reporting on COVID-19 numbers and lawmakers considering legislation allowing for the research of psychedelic psilocybin or "magic mushrooms" to treat mental health issues from addiction to post-traumatic stress disorder.
