Even drugs or compounds that are not technically steroids, such as thyroid hormones, ephedrine, or post-cycle recovery drugs, can carry severe legal and financial consequences if you are caught buying or selling them. The Federal Anabolic Steroid Act Of 1990 categorizes anabolic steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs as Schedule III Narcotics. This is the same classification as barbiturates, LSD precursors, and narcotic painkillers.
Unlawful possession of steroids is punishable by up to one year in prison and a fine of $1,000. Steroid charges can add up quickly since the prosecution will often equate 1cc or one pill with one count of possession. Even if you are caught with your own personal supply you may be charged with possession with intent to sell. The Worcester criminal defense attorneys at Murphy & Rudolf, LLP can work quickly to try to minimize the legal, administrative, and financial consequences regarding your case.
