    Thumbs down The ban has begun


    I manage a GNC to put my broke ass through collage and I recieve a notice form the corp. office informing me that "as of march 1 2004 GNC will be no longer be able to carrying any andro products what so ever and stores are to have all such products sold or thrown out by then". Then they have the balls to say thanks at the bottom! . just because there isnt a huge tax on these products (like there is on smokes ) and it not as socally accepted . they think it fair to take away the freedom of choice. This went down the same way effedra did , GNC stopped carrying there products and i believe as of a few weeks ago there banned.Thought you guys would like to know.

    Thanks Eric

    The forkin bastids! Another corporate sell out. I didn't buy anything from GNC anyway. If our representative (HA) government can get away with shelving ephedra, it won't be long until AAS are gone as well.

    It is my opinion that politicaly correct GNC will remove their products from the shelves some time before our government gets around to making them illegal.So stock up while you still can.

    question.. how is this related to 'the ban"

    it just means that GNC has opted not to sell 'andro' products. has nothing
    to do with governement pressure..what it does have to do with is, PR.

    Yeah, I know some people that work at the local GNC and they showed me the memo this past Monday. Talked about the "negative public view" of andro, and the government pressuring to make the products illegal and such. I almost think it's a good thing . . . No more inexperienced lifters without a clue getting themselves into trouble by using prohormones.

    I used to work for GNC in Texas, it seemed that before a product was banned the Corp would pull them off the shelves about 6 months in advance.........just my 2 cents.....
