FYI Supplements and UCMJ

On 22 Oct 04, the President signed into law a Bill known as the "Andro Ban." The law, which takes effect 20 Jan 05, adds 18 substances to the list of banned anabolic steroids in the Controlled Substances Act (21
USC 802). The term "anabolic steroid" means any drug or hormonal substance, chemically and pharmacologically related to testosterone(other than estrogens, progestins, and corticosteroids) that promotes muscle growth. The most significant of these is androstenedione, a steroid precursor known as "andro" in the bodybuilding community. Under
the new law, andro and andro supplements (to include commonly-used 1AD and 4AD), which are currently available in virtually all health and fitness stores, will be classified as Schedule III controlled substances, similar to cocaine and heroin. As of 20 Jan 05, these substances may no longer be legally purchased. It will also be illegal to use them, even if they were bought before 20 Jan 05.

If a member possesses or uses these products after 20 Jan 05, they may face UCMJ action. Look it up online using 21 USC 802 as a reference.
