HGH From Mexico
Steroids, Performance Enhancing HGH, and the Effects of PED Law Upon
the American Market
Enhancing Drugs have been a major topic of discussion for a number of
years. PED Abuse originally began to become a significant issue
during the 1980s. During this time, a number of track athletes and
other Olympic and professional sports stars began using drugs like
Human Growth Hormone and Anabolic Steroids in order to bolster their
performance. Although in previous years, the use of some of these
drugs, including Testosterone, are well documented, it is during the
eighties that the use of Drugs for Performance Enhancement really
began to skyrocket.
result of growing knowledge about these drugs and performance
enhancing techniques outside of the sports world, the United States
Congress made the decision to begin actively legislating against the
use of drugs like HGH for Performance Enhancement. The first and most
significant early legislation against PED Usage was the Anabolic
Steroid Control Act of 1990.
Congress Acts on Steroids
Anabolic Steroid Control Act functions as an extension of the
Controlled Substances Act. As a result of this legislation, the Food
and Drug Administration altered its rules for the treatment of drugs
such as Human Growth Hormone and Anabolic Testosterone, tightening
the rules and regulations regarding their use in an effort to prevent
their use for Performance Enhancement.
One of the
primary goals of the Anabolic Steroid Control Act of 1990 was to hold
trainers and coaches more accountable, legally discouraging them from
encouraging athletes to turn to drugs like Testosterone and Growth
Hormone. The Act controlled the use of many drugs considered capable
of encouraging muscle enhancement and growth through its use.
Congress Expands the Anabolic Steroid Control Act
Anabolic Steroid Control Act was expanded in 2004 in a bill sponsored
by now-Vice President Joe Biden. The 2004 law lengthened the list of
drugs which are currently considered Performance Enhancing Drugs to
include new PEDs which were either not considered in the original
legislation or that were created since the first act went into law in
the early nineties.
interesting note is that although there is a growing list of drugs
which are banned for use in physical enhancement, the hormone DHEA is
still legal and is available over the counter for the foreseeable
future. Politicians created these two laws as an effort to curb the
sale and distribution of these drugs for the purpose of Performance
Enhancement, but the male desire for strength and increased physical
capability continues to prove stronger than the laws written by
Bans the Use of Drugs for Performance Enhancement
As a a
result of this legislation, and other legislation that has occurred
since, Human Growth Hormone, Testosterone, and other Performance
Enhancing Therapies are highly restricted and illegal in the United
States. Although the Conscious Evolution Institute does not condone
or support the use of Human Growth Hormone or Testosterone for
Performance Enhancement, it is clear that these drugs have a
tremendous impact on physical performance, allowing athletes and
bodybuilders to achieve training goals that they would otherwise be
unable to achieve.
Armstrong PED Use
years, Lance Armstrong is one of the clearest examples of how
Performance Enhancers like HGH can improve performance. Lance
Armstrong was the central figure of one of the largest cover-ups in
the history of professional sports, engaging in the use of EPO,
Steroids, and other PEDs in order to become the most dominant cyclist
of all time. Countless individuals were complicit in his drug usage,
and it is only in recent months and years that individuals have come
forward to confirm growing suspicions over Armstrong's use of
Testosterone and other Drugs.
result of these confirmed accusations, Lance Armstrong has had all of
his Tour de France Titles revoked. Although Lance Armstrong clearly
cheated, it is wrong to simply point the finger at Armstrong for
engaging in unfair practices in order to succeed. It is incredibly
easy to heap blame upon Armstrong, but the entire sport of
professional cycling is also to blame for creating an environment
where drugs like Growth Hormone and Testosterone are not only common,
but necessary in order to succeed.
baseball in the late 90s and early 2000s, Performance Enhancers were
so pervasive in the sport that it became incredibly difficult, if not
in certain cases impossible, to reach the upper echelons of the
sports without cheating at least just a little bit. This is
especially true for certain athletes who were not gifted with the
perfect set of genes for athletic dominance.
Law Enforcement Unable to Curb PED Use
the United States Government and U.S. Law enforcement officials are
trying hard to clamp down on the issue of Illicit HGH and
Testosterone Use, the propagation of these Methods of Performance
Enhancement continues to occur. Even today, there are drug
distributors and manufacturers who utilize the PED witch hunt in
order to drum up sales and notoriety for their own products. Although
there is a long list of drugs which are banned for use for
Performance Enhancement by Congress and the various national and
international athletic organizations, there continue to be products
that exist in gray areas of enforcement.
Deer Antler Spray and HGH
One of the
most recent of these controversies involve a substance known as Deer
Antler Spray. Mitch Ross runs a company known as S.W.A.T.S., which is
an acronym for Sports with Alternatives to Steroids. In recent weeks,
Elite PGA Tour Golfer Vijay Singh was busted for the use of Deer
Antler Spray, which is a drug which purports to bolster Human Growth
Hormone levels. This drug has not been regulated or approved by the
FDA because of its status as a health supplement.
the year, Mitch Ross made a name for himself and garnered a large
amount of attention as a result of his claim that Baltimore Ravens
Linebacker Ray Lewis used Deer Antler Spray as a means to increase
the rate at which he healed from a muscle injury which sidelined him
for months. Ray Lewis Tore his tricep in a crushing tackle versus the
Arizona Cardinals early in the 2012 season and was able to recover
quickly enough to play in the Super Bowl versus the San Francisco
there was no proof, there were peripheral skeptics who felt that Ray
Lewis may have used Performance Enhancing Drugs in order to speed up
the rate of his recovery, and Mitch Ross decided to capitalize on the
conspiracy theory. Although there is absolutely no evidence for Ross'
claim, and Ray Lewis has thus far been clear of any and all
wrong-doing, the recent case regarding Vijay Singh shows that
interest in Deer Antler Spray persists.
advertises it's usefulness, claiming that if Singh were confident
enough to invest $9000 in treatment, he must have felt very sure that
the therapy was beneficial. Sales of drugs like Deer Antler Spray are
growing precisely because the oversight regarding Human Growth
Hormone has grown so intense in regard to its use for bolstering
Black Market Performance Enhancing Drugs
One of the
ways that athletes and other individuals interested in off-label use
of Human Growth Hormone and anabolic steroids acquire their drugs is
by crossing the border into Mexico. By crossing into Tijuana or other
border towns, they are able to smuggle PEDs back into the United
States for personal use as well as for distribution. Black Market
Performance Enhancers continue to be a significant problem for Law
Enforcement Officials. Although they attempt to make inroads in
regard to controlling the issue, it seems that new workarounds, as
well as gray market alternatives, continue to thwart their efforts.
HGH, Steroids, and Testosterone
the effort to curb the abuse of Human Growth Hormone and Testosterone
continues with great fervency, across the border in Mexico, it
remains incredibly easy to acquire Illicit Growth Hormone, among
other popular PEDs. One of the most active areas for this activity is
in Tijuana, Mexico. Tijuana is a sprawling city located just across
the border from California, a few hours away from Los Angeles.
along with many other areas of the western-most peninsula of Mexico
known as Baja California, is full of resort destinations,
international trade, and a burgeoning United States expatriate
community. Medical patients often cross the border into Tijuana in
order to get their hands on discount drugs, or get prescriptions for
drugs that would be far more difficult or expensive to obtain in the
Spas and Resorts cater to the rich and well-connected, giving them
access to treatments and therapies which are unapproved in the United
States. Many quench their desire for HGH and other Performance
Enhancers by simply crossing the border and abusing the Mexican
medical system or outright subverting the Mexican legal system, which
in regard to drugs such as Human Growth Hormone is more likely to
turn a blind eye to such activities.
One of the
ways that American and International visitors to Tijuana get away
with acquiring anabolic steroids is by purchasing steroid supplements
which are designed for veterinary use, although perfectly suitable
for human use. Granero El Alazan is one of these animal pharmacies
that willingly sells Performance Enhancing Steroids to customers
without regard to what use the customer intends for them. The
interior of the pharmacy seems to make it clear that the proprietors
and staff know and understand that a large proportion of their
clientele use their products for decidedly off-label purposes, but
they seem to have no moral quandaries about their business.
Tijuana is right across the border from San Diego and Chula Vista and
is full of American visitors, customers, and currency, the city is
still clearly a frontier trade town in which anything goes for a
price. On the wall of Granero El Alazan, there is a huge array of
products on display which include a number of the most potent steroid
medications available in the world today.
medicines are displayed in small, nondescript bottles which seem to
encourage passersby to grab a bottle and try some for themselves. A
large man is in front of the display, ready to make a deal with
anyone who is willing to name the right price. When one steps foot
into a pharmacy such as this, it becomes clear how difficult it is to
contain the ever-growing American and International interest in drugs
such as Testosterone and other Anabolic Steroids used for non-medical
Designed for Animals, Sold for Human Use
steroids that Granero El Alazan provides are intended at face value
for animals such as horses, in order to increase the muscle mass of
animals that are valued for their strength. In the minds of vendors
and proprietors of pharmacies such as this one, however, man is just
another animal which is valued for his strength, and it is clear that
the Mexican market mentality explicitly supports and condones this
sort of black market trade.
vendor briefly surveys his customer, he easily ascertains his
motivation and quickly expresses a well-rehearsed sales pitch to his
potential client, bathed in the rhetoric of thoroughbred racing, as
if to mutually provide some semblance of continuity while also
ginning up the customer's motives and desire for the products on
merchant speaks to the American customer in somewhat broken, yet
fully understandable English, telling him that steroids from this
shop can make a man run like a horse. He further entices the customer
by reminding him of professional athletes such as Ben Johnson, that
used drugs just like those provided at Granero El Alazon in order to
become the fastest runner in the entire world. The way he speaks
almost makes it feel like Ben Johnson's steroids came directly from
their own pharmacy.
Johnson Steroid Controversy
Johnson was a Jamaican sprinter who was originally known as the
fastest sprinter in the world, breaking world records in both the
1987 World Championships in Athletics and the 1988 Summer Olympics.
Although he was briefly awarded the gold medal for Canada in Seoul,
South Korea, he was quickly disqualified because he failed a drug
test, testing positive for the Anabolic Steroid Stanozolol, the exact
drug which was held in the hand of the Mexican Pharmacist.
being caught, Johnson also admitted to using Anabolic Steroids in
order to obtain his previous world record, and was subsequently also
stripped of that record as well. Ben Johnson's argument is still one
that resounds today. Ben Johnson claimed that he did not intend to
use Performance Enhancing Steroids in order to cheat other athletes,
but he felt that Testosterone use was so rampant among his
competitors on the track that the only way to compete and succeed was
to engage in its use in order to (literally) keep up.
Ben Johnson was demonized by the media and the public, he was later
vindicated to great extent by the future careers of his immediate
peers. Five of the 100 meter sprinters that ran alongside Johnson at
the 1988 Olympics were later implicated in Performance Enhancing
Scandals of their own,
Carl Lewis and Linford Christie, who placed second and third behind
Lewis and Christie were not directly found guilty of Steroid use in
the 1988 Olympics, their subsequent legal troubles make it clear
that the only men who were on the winners podium that day were using
Steroids like Testosterone in order to achieve their glory, and it is
entirely within the realm of possibility that every sprinter on the
track for that final race used Steroids or other PEDs to make it to
that final, global stage.
Johnson Fueled PED Legislation
interest in creating stern legislation regarding the use of
Performance Enhancing Drugs arose directly from the Ben Johnson case,
because it was the first time that the American and Canadian public
was put face-to-face with the issue of fairness and propriety in
sports, and how Testosterone, HGH, and other steroids have the
potential to deteriorate the fair, egalitarian and meritocratic
atmosphere of domestic and international athletics.
public outcry over Ben Johnson's failed drug test placed PED use on
center stage, creating an odd climate around American sports that
persists to this day. It is almost as if one of the primary means of
this form of drug testing is to preserve a sense of innocence in what
it means to participate in amateur, professional, and Olympic sport.
Human Growth Hormone was, and still is, almost entirely undetectable
if used with any sense of care. Given the opportunity, there will
always be athletes that subvert the rules in order to gain a
Faces of Professional Sports
always be athletes that recognize that success on the field is their
livelihood. These men and women see and understand what other
athletes are capable of getting away with. The pressure to use PEDs
like HGH in order to maintain performance on an increasingly
unbalanced playing field decreases the desire to remain ethical, and
increases the implicit recognition that these drugs are just part of
the game now.
these two vastly differing perspectives regarding professional sports
between the pro athlete and the outside observer, there remains a
significant rift in how the interaction between sports and PEDS is
interpreted. The observer tends to see Performance Enhancing Drugs as
a detriment to competition which dismantles the purity of the game.
The pro athlete may share these same sentiments, but those that
choose to use HGH and other drugs see these drugs as a means to
achieve success in a sport that at it's core is a national spectacle
which is nothing but pure.
ironic thing about the laws originally enacted in the early 1990s in
regard to Steroids and other PEDs is that their ratification has
actually in many ways led to the veritable explosion in drug
accessibility that persists to this day. The Anabolic Steroid Control
Act did achieve its goal of more closely monitoring the sale and
distribution of illicit Steroids from domestic medical sources,
slowing down the rate of Steroid prescription to athletes and
bodybuilders, but in doing so, it vastly increased the demand for
these drugs from Black Market sources such as Mexican Medical
Pharmacies which are exponentially harder to monitor in order to
it may be easy to convince a physician to stop engaging in an action
that puts him or her and legal risk, the black market functions
specifically in order to maximize profit and subvert domestic and
international law as efficiently and undetectably as possible. In
other words, it creates a market which is impossible to regulate by
definition, and as long as the market exists, someone will be willing
to make a profit.
journalists have uncovered a mountain of evidence that suggests that
although regulations and legal actions have reduced domestic
prescription of Steroids and HGH for Performance Enhancement in
healthy individuals, the availability of these drugs for illicit PED
usage has at best remained steady, and at worst increased rapidly. As
these laws take effect, it drives the entire industry underground,
reducing accountability even further and introducing safety concerns
which were originally mitigated by quasi-legal American medical
Officials Admit the Failures of Steroid and HGH Legislation
government officials recognize that the original PED legislation did
not work at all as it was originally intended, leading to a host of
new issues which many admit that they were wholly unprepared for.
Gary Wadler is a New York physician that was once the go-to
representative to the President in affairs regarding the confluence
of athletics and drug use. He readily acknowledges that the cosigners
of the Anabolic Steroid Control Act of 1990 made a tremendous
miscalculation in labeling Performance Enhancing Steroids and HGH as
Controlled Substances. There were no voices of importance at the time
that predicted the amazingly counterproductive outcome that was
manifest in their ultimate decision.
Growth Hormone for Performance Enhancement
in the early years of the debate over what to do about PEDs, Anabolic
Steroids and Testosterone were the primary source of debate, the
modern reality of Performance Enhancement primarily revolves around
EPO and Human Growth Hormone. Human Growth Hormone is not a steroid
like Testosterone or Stanozolol, but still has a potent capability to
enhance athletic ability. Human Growth Hormone does not simply
stimulate the strength and growth of muscles, it produces various
physical benefits throughout the human body.
Human Growth Hormone?
Growth Hormone has been shown to increase the rate at which muscle
fibers grow both in and out of the weight room. HGH has the
capability to stimulate muscle growth even without exercise, but when
used in combination with weight training, HGH Injections are capable
of increasing muscle output by a greater margin than that which can
be produced by exercise alone.
One of the
ways that Human Growth Hormone stimulates muscle growth is by
increasing natural basal metabolic rate. HGH is converted by the body
into Insulin-like Growth Factor 1, which significantly increases the
rate at which the human body breaks down stores of adipose fat around
the human body. IGF-1 molecules flow throughout the bloodstream, and
also metabolize triglycerides throughout the body, not only
normalizing cholesterol, but providing more energy for the body.
building exercise puts a physical strain on the body, and through the
course of a workout, the body begins to give in to fatigue, which
slows down the rate of progress and development which benefits
athletes on the field and on the track. Increased metabolism helps
the muscles remain “fed” during a workout, which slows down the
rate at which an individual succumbs to the symptoms of fatigue.
Reduces Injury Recovery Time
direct muscle development, the most powerful way that Human Growth
Hormone may be able to benefit athletes is by reducing downtime from
both routine physical activity as well as injury. Although this may
seem counter-intuitive at first, muscle building does not actually
occur during exercise.
The human body actually becomes stronger as a result of exercise
during the period of recovery which primarily occurs as we sleep. The
longer and harder we exercise, the more time that the body needs in
order to recuperate and become stronger. Human Growth Hormone
increases the rate at which rehabilitation occurs, allowing the
muscles to become fully ready for physical activity at a faster pace.
HGH Heals Sports Injuries
In the cases highlighted by Ray Lewis and Vijay Singh, a different
form of rejuvenative capability is suggested. Although the two sports
are very different, both football and golf are sports with players
plagued by injury. In football, the possibility for injury is
obvious. Bone-crushing tackles and hits contribute to an exceedingly
high rate of injury to the muscles, joints, ligaments, and tendons,
as well as cartilage and bone tissue.
Golf, on the other hand, can be very damaging to the body because the
repetitive motion and force of an ideal golf swing puts tremendous
pressure upon the joints of the shoulder, vertebrae, elbow, and
knees. In addition to his extracurricular woes, Tiger Woods has been
struggling for years with back and shoulder pain caused by his golf
Until recently, Tiger was known for his slightly unorthodox golf
swing. Although the swing afforded him the power to out-drive almost
any other golfer on the planet, the motion put more stress on his
body than a normal method. As a result of the joint pain that he has
developed over the course of his long and illustrious career, Tiger
had to adapt and adjust to the changes taking place in his body.
HGH for Physical Rehabilitation
There is evidence that Human Growth Hormone could be highly
beneficial to athletes in any sport that have to worry about pain and
injury. Scientific studies have shown that HGH Hormone Replacement
Therapy has the ability to increase the rate at which the body
repairs damaged cartilage that results from the wear and tear of
vigorous physical activity. In addition to this, Human Growth Hormone
also increases the rate at which numerous physical injuries to the
body heal, which can benefit players like Vijay Singh tremendously.
Although there is no evidence that Ray Lewis used drugs that
stimulate HGH production, there are numerous football players that
have surely used Human Growth Hormone in an attempt to get back out
onto the field faster, as well as closer to 100%.
for Muscle Mass
treatments such as Human Growth Hormone Shots have been getting the
most media coverage, steroids seem to be undergoing a resurgence of
use. Dr. Wadler explains that for athletes simply looking to increase
muscle mass, steroids are the most sought-after drugs on the market.
Anabolic Steroids are not only popular among athletes, but younger
males are beginning to use Steroids like Testosterone more and more
often simply in order to become more toned and attractive.
decades that have past since the 1990 law came into effect, the issue
of Performance Enhancing Drug usage has become even more visible and
pronounced, and it is clear that the law did little to slow down the
increased prevalence of Performance Enhancers in American society.
For example, in the year 2000, United States Customs Officials seized
close to 9000 international shipments of Anabolic Steroids, almost
double the amount seized in the year prior. Both of these values
dwarf the number of Steroid shipments discovered in the year 1994,
when just over 1000 shipments were seized.
admit that the increased number of Anabolic Steroid Seizures has not
occurred because of any significant advances made by Customs
Officials or Law Enforcement Agents. According to all of the
information available, this increase in steroid trafficking is
more-or-less directly correlated with increased international black
market activity regarding international Steroid shipment. American
Customs representatives are painfully aware that most Steroid
smugglers pass into the United States unimpeded.
Marketed to Youth
Illegal Anabolic Steroids make it into the domestic United States
market, the vast majority of the drugs are marketed and purchased by
younger men and women, in some cases even teenagers. Although track
stars and baseball players are the athletes that people think of when
they think of Testosterone and Steroids, the use of these drugs has
skyrocketed among two particular groups: Boys in middle school and
trends are quite alarming because these two groups are those most at
risk from the abuse of Performance Enhancing Drugs like Steroids. The
female body is physiologically designed to process much lower
concentrations of androgens related to Testosterone, and Steroid
Abuse can alter the physiological make up of female athletes, in some
ways which are permanent.
are vulnerable because middle school boys are at very high risk of
medical issues as a result of steroid abuse. Puberty is the period in
which hormone activity is actively altering the delicate structure of
the human body, and unnaturally elevated levels of androgens within
the body can greatly influence the process of puberty and male
physical development in negative ways.
Prevalent among Teenagers
year 1999, the National Institute of Drug Abuse performed a
nationwide survey in order to get a specific idea regarding how
prevalent Steroid abuse was among American students in middle and
high school. The survey revealed that Anabolic Steroid Use was the
highest that it had been in a decade, and likely higher than it ever
to the survey, more than 450,000 students across the United States
admitted to having used steroids at least once by the time they
reached their last year of high school. 450,000 accounts for almost
three percent of all male students in the United States. Another
factoid discovered as a result of this survey also highlighted the
extent of the availability of Anabolic Steroids to young boys. Forty
five percent of the students polled said that they felt it would be
easy to acquire PED Anabolic Steroids if they actually wanted to take
Steroid Sales Continue to Grow
clear that the market for Black Market Steroids is incredibly large,
but there is no real way to ascertain how much the market is truly
flourishing. For obvious reasons, there is no all-encompassing way to
track the sale of Illicit Anabolic Steroids. Law Enforcement
Officials and experts are forced to extrapolate sales figures from
the minimal data that they have as a result of criminal and academic
also no way to know exactly how many athletes are using Performance
Enhancing Drugs. There are so many ways to elude detection, that
there is no doubt that the vast majority of athletes who choose to
use drugs like HGH, Testosterone, and other Anabolic Steroids get
away with it. The last time that the American government tried to
place a hard value on the sales of Anabolic Steroids in the U.S.A.
was in 1988. That year, the United States GAO estimated that
$300-$400 million dollars was spent on Performance Enhancing Steroids
that year, and as the laws have tightened around the sale of PEDs, it
becomes increasingly more difficult to track and make estimates of
these sales. Most experts regarding public health believe that the
market is far larger than that in 1988, and all evidence seems to
suggest that the quantity of Anabolic Steroids sold illegally has
only grown in size over the past twenty five years.
perhaps more Anabolic Steroids sold in in Tijuana than anywhere else
in North America. One of Tijuana's largest sources of revenue is in
providing goods and services that are prohibited or overly expensive
in the United States. Over the course of the nineties, the number of
human and veterinary pharmacies in Tijuana have exploded.
By the end
of the decade there were around 950 pharmacies open and operating in
the city, which has a relatively modest population of one million.
San Diego, a city far larger than Tijuana, only has about 475
pharmacies across the entire city. This evidence alone highlights the
black market and gray market deals which occur daily all across
pharmacies appear at their densest in downtown Tijuana, where in a
region of ten blocks, there are more than two hundred pharmacies
operating in an incredibly concentrated area. Not all of these
pharmacies focus on Anabolic Performance Enhancement, however. Other
pharmacies cater directly toward American tourists and shoppers who
visit with the intent of acquiring cheap prescription drugs.
Sales Illegal in Mexico...On Paper
Mexican legal system expressly prohibits the sale of Anabolic
Steroids without a prescription. For many types of Steroids, the law
also requires that pharmacists take the prescription from the patient
in order to prevent them from using the same prescription repeatedly
in order to score large amounts of the drug. Although ostensibly
pharmacies could lose their license to operate if they do not obey
laws regarding Anabolic Steroids, these laws are only lightly
enforced, if at all. Law enforcement in Tijuana implicitly allows the
sale of these drugs to American customers by making few attempts to
stem the illegal sales.
Steroid Pharmacy Investigation
investigative study, journalists entered five random pharmacies in
Tijuana. In every case, the pharmacies readily offered Anabolic
Steroids even with no medical prescription. In addition to this,
there were few restrictions regarding the quantity of Steroids that a
single shopper could walk away with.
undercover journalists were also able to buy Anabolic Steroids in two
animal pharmacies with no questions asked. These pharmacies, known as
graneras, are incredibly popular among steroid enthusiasts
because these shops sell steroids which are considered too strong for
human use in America.
Mexican Pharmacists Sell Steroids, HGH, and other Performance
many of the vendors within the Tijuana pharmacies wore white lab
coats, it was quickly clear that the uniform is simply a shallow
sham, because the majority of the employees of these pharmacies have
relatively little working knowledge of the anabolic products that
they endorse. On top of that, only one percent of adults in Mexico
have a college degree.
pharmacists at these stores were unable to provide meaningful medical
advice, and most had no real knowledge of the steroid products that
they sold. On the other hand, if you needed to traffic steroids back
into the United States, they were incredibly knowledgeable about how
to elude Customs Officials and subvert American law.
of the pharmacies had numerous suggestions for how to smuggle
Anabolic Steroids across the border. They suggested to move the
steroids from their original packaging into a vitamin bottle. They
also told the journalists to shove the steroid bottles into their
clothes, or wrap them tightly inside of a blanket.
States Admits That It Cannot Control PED Smuggling
States Customs Agents admit that many of the methods offered by these
amateur pharmacists would be more than sufficient to smuggle black
market prescription drugs across the border into the United States.
U.S. Customs is responsible for enforcing more than six hundred laws
for the United States government, and Anabolic Steroids are only one
item among literally hundreds that Customs Officials are supposed to
representatives of the United States Government talk a lot about
Performance Enhancing Drugs and their desire to curb their abuse, at
the the border, these drugs are of relatively low priority. Customs
Officials are primarily concerned with seizing and confiscating
illegal narcotics, and their task force is trained primarily for this
purpose. Although drug dogs could conceivably be trained to sniff out
these illicit prescription drugs, no animals have received this kind
Patrol Fights Losing Battle Against Steroids and PEDs
agents are very clearly losing the battle with prescription drug
smugglers at the Mexican border. Since NAFTA passed in 1994, the
flood gates of trade between the two nations turned wide open,
leaving Customs Officials more than understaffed for their important
function. More than sixty thousand people leave Tijuana for the
United States every single day. Of those sixty thousand, only an
average of one will be found with Anabolic Steroids.
officials are frustrated by the incredibly low apprehension rate of
these smugglers. There is powerful evidence that Mexico is the
largest source of illegal steroids smuggled into the United States.
Although the drugs pass from Mexico to the United States, only a
portion of those drugs are actually manufactured in Mexico. A
significant percentage of Anabolic Steroids and HGH enter Mexico by
sea from Eastern Europe, China, and Australia. As these drugs enter
Mexico, they generally move upwards from Mexico City, toward Tijuana.
Market Mexican Steroids on the Internet
One of the
primary reasons for the explosion of Steroid sales in the United
States is because of the rise of the internet over the last twenty
years. Online marketplaces make it easier than ever to connect the
provider to the consumer, allowing individuals to purchase steroids
without ever leaving their home. There are even directories online
which compile master lists of Mexican pharmacies in Tijuana and other
HGH and Other Drugs Be Legal for Performance Enhancement?
the United States Government has a clearly voiced stance on the issue
of Performance Enhancing Drugs, there are a growing number of
proponents that call for the legalization of Anabolic Steroids for
Performance Enhancement. These voices center around the idea that the
entire movement to ban Steroid use for such purposes created a
it illegal for American doctors and pharmacists to provide Steroid
treatments for physical enhancement, the legal system has
inadvertently hindered the safety of Americans by opening up the
gateway to Black Market Steroids which are potentially far more
dangerous to the consumer. Where American physicians once provided
guidance and monitored usage, there is now no figure available to
help ensure that products are used safely and effectively while
reducing the risk of negative reactions. Where American pharmacies
provided high quality prescription steroids, users are now forced to
take their chances with shady black market manufacturers and salesmen
who offer little assurance of quality control.
eighties, experts believe that physicians provided one-third of the
Anabolic Steroids used by American athletes. Today, that percentage
has shrunk to a mere pittance of what it once was.
