U.S. federal government violating people's liberties, as usual
Imagine if the U.S. federal government just left steroid and growth hormone users free to consume them, and the drug makers free to provide them. Imagine if the money needed for the persecution of these people was simply left in the pockets of the taxpayers, where it belongs. Imagine if the federal agents whose job now is to bully people into submission found instead constructive jobs and actually did something of benefit to society. How much nicer would that world be?
Illegal steroid racket busted
US federal investigators announced they had cracked a huge global racket supplying black-market anabolic steroids, human growth hormone and insulin growth factor.
The evidence they seized includes emails and invoices which could implicate customers, some of whom may be leading athletes.
Nationwide raids on 24 September by officials from the US Drug Enforcement Administration led to 124 arrests at 56 steroid labs. Agents seized 242 kilograms of raw steroid powder, mainly of Chinese origin, and 11.4 million doses of steroids.
With collaborators in nine other countries, Operation Raw Deal uncovered a clandestine web of international drug dealers selling through the internet.
