The status of steroids or drugs in UK is an intricate one. A person who buys steroids is protected by the UK law but the person who is selling is committing a crime. Selling steroids within UK is prohibited unless it is done via a certified medium.
The Law enforcements:
For this law enforcements are being made stricter- even for class C drugs. The UK law department have stated
- Anyone who is found in possession of class c drugs will have to serve a couple of years in prison along with unlimited penalties. And those whoever is found supplying such steroids of drugs to users is entitled to serve 14 years of imprisonment along with severe penances.
- The laws of the land state that anabolic drugs should be sold only to pharmacists but with a doctor’s prescription. Most of the sporting organizations have banned the usage of particular kind of steroids and if anyone comes out with a positive test then they are entitled to be banned for a certain period of time.
- The UK law officials have also stated that any civilian who buy steroids London, uses them extensively or found involved in its related offence will be prevented from travelling abroad (US in particular) and will also be restricted to the number of job applications.
The worrying thing:
In 2014 as per the home office stats, it was found that about 60000+ people used these steroids and most of them were youngsters. But the thing which scared most government officials is that these numbers show no signs of stopping.
“Our numbers are increasing on a regular basis”- quoted Ray Jones- an elite member of the South West Minister UK.
Ray also stated that he worked with steroid consumers for over 16 years and when he started- the average age was 30 and now in recent times it has dropped down to 23.
Though people who buy steroids london from online sources only get class C drugs/Anabolic drugs, the rapid increase in the number of young users is considered as a worrying sign- according to Prof. Gillian Leng, the CE of the NICE- National Institution and Care Excellence.
Some experts also expressed the fear saying that if not stopped, the consequences will prove to be detrimental.Read More
