Pro-Hormone ban one step closer

This summer, the US House of Representatives passed HR 3866, the Anabolic Steroid Control Act of 2004, which would ban all steroid precursors and pro-hormones, and increased penalties for anabolic steroid offenses near sports facilities. It was then sent to the Senate.

Now, the Senate Judiciary Committee has approved and sent to the full Senate a similar bill, S 2195. While this bill is not as extreme as the house bill, HR 3866′s language could be added later.

This bill could come up for a vote in a matter of days, or it could sit there until the end of the session, and then they’d have to start all over.

If you don’t want to see the War On Drugs to be extended to pro-hormones, now is the time to write your senator.

    It seems like the tide is against us on this. I certainly am writing my senators on this issue but my perception is that the public at large feels that these supplements should be banned altogether because of fears of kids using them. Also it makes Congress look like it’s doing something about drug problems and only disenfranchising a small and not very vocal minority in this country (bodybuilders or people in shape–both are pretty small groups in America).

    I would rather see the supplement companies better regulated in regards to false claims and making sure their labels and their actual ingredients do indeed match up.
