Why don't the pro's ever get busted

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. A few years back there were numerous recreational and hallucinogenic "research chemicals" available through mail-order and the Internet - I'm talking stuff just as powerful as LSD and amphetamines - and their use and availability was widely discussed on the web. Eventually, after a few people died while using one substance in particular, the DEA and FBI busted a few of the manufacturers under the analogue act, although I'm not sure if the prosecutions stuck. But going after the users was never a priority, and even the distributors only took heat once the issue got press.

    In general, steroids are even less of a priority. Remember that the federal law enforcement agencies have limited resources (and since 9/11 more and more of these resources have been shifted from drug enforcement to terrorism). They can barely keep up with large-scale importers and underground manufacturers. Going after consumers just isn't practical, especially when it comes to "research chemicals" for which a conviction is difficult.

    IMO, the #1 way to get caught with illegal steroids is the same as the #1 way to get caught with any illegal substance: a traffic stop.

    Other than that, the only high-risk situation I can think of is interception by customs. Some international packages get x-rayed, and if there are vials or pills then they'll be opened. If illegal substances are found then the packages are sometimes just destroyed with no further consequences, but sometimes not.

    The #1 way dealers get caught is when one of their customers gets arrested, flips in exchange for a deal, and sets up an undercover buy. But if you're not selling then you don't have this problem.

    Just like everybody knows that pros use steroids, everybody knows that hippies (you know, dreadlocks, "Phish" t-shirt, patched corduroy pants, etc.) smoke weed. Yet most people who obviously smoke weed don't get busted either.

    You hit the nail on the head. The majority of local and state cops aren't paid to investigate. They're paid to patrol and respond and, if something falls into their laps, make a bust. And those investigators in the "narcotics" unit are focused almost exclusively with recreational drugs.

    The few investigators that deal solely with steroids are on the federal level, and they only have the resources and inclination to go after the very biggest of fish.

    plus most pros aren't dealers and usually those busted are those dealing

    yup

    second, quite a few pro's have a script for testosterone. and according to rick collins, nobody with a test script has ever gotten busted for any other roids.

    I don't know about only dealers getting busted, a member here, Pistonpump got busted a few days ago and he was not dealing and apparently the bust was just about steroids not rec drugs.

    Do you know any details about how it happened?

    Apparently the feds just knocked on piston's door and checked him out. He said they made him dump out his nolva. There was a big thread he made about it on a different board, I would post a link but I am not sure if that is kosher.

  8. Hmm... interesting. You said he got busted. Did he actually get arrested, or did they just come to the door, ask him questions, and make him dump his nolva?

    I'd like to see this thread, but you don't have PM. Would it be cool to just point me in the right direction? I'm not trying to break any rules... just something like "BB.com" or the like.

    OK, thanks. That's what I thought...

  11. He is probably just freaking out.

    Cops are not going to bother with the everyday steroid user. They are much more concerned with dealers.

    I live in DFW, TX and there is a big problem with high school steroid use. There was this guy at my gym a little while back that got popped. He was a huuugeee guy and was selling roids to the dumb kids at the gym.

    There is a big difference between selling and using. For one, they are not gonna be able to pin you with as big of a case if you are just a user. Second, when you sell something on the black market, you are also committing tax evasion by making money that is not accounted for by the government.

  12. The key is not to have enough on your person/area that even if you're not a dealer you could be considered one.

    Are there certain amounts we should know about or is it just have enough for one cycle type deal?

  14. I didn't know that serms were illegal

    They're not controlled substances, so I don't think they're illegal to possess. (Not sure about importation.) Distributing for human consumption without a license is definitely illegal, though.
