British citizens are not allowed to order steroids at online pharmacies. Importation of steroids into the UK is claimed to be illicit under a new amendment to the steroid law. Those who live in the UK and import steroids into the country are sanctioned by authorities. But British people may freely purchase, possess and use steroids.
According to the “personal custody”, those who arrived to London for the Olympics were allowed to import steroids for self-administration. It was not considered to be illegal under British laws. Nevertheless, those who live inside the UK don’t have any right to purchase steroids at online pharmacies and import them from other countries to the UK.
Earlier British people were allowed to purchase steroids from outside the country. The amendment was presented by the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs (ACMD) in order to protect health of those that administer steroids. But could the amendment do it?
Numerous underground labs produce anabolic steroids inside the UK. They prosper on account of the amendment. But it is necessary to take into account that many underground labs produce steroids of low quality. So, British people have to purchase steroids of low quality because it is forbidden to import steroids that are produced outside the country by safe pharmaceutical companies.
The government warned Needle-Syringe Program (NSP) workers that they would have to work more. It was claimed that the amendment would increase the number of steroid users.
Actually, the amendment is likely to have negative influence on health of steroid users. Steroid-using sportspersons and bodybuilders may get grave side reactions because they switch from quality steroids produced by trustworthy pharmaceutical companies to worse preparations produced by underground labs located in the UK.
