There is now a huge variety of Steroids for sale in the UK. Most commonly manufactured overseas, Steroids vary in qualities and compositions and are usually sold at Gyms, under controlled and monitored circumstances.
Athletes and bodybuilders, in their quest for enhancing strength and muscle volume, are routinely relying on the use of Anabolic Steroids. To this extent, under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971, Steroids are lawful for personal use and lawful to Import for personal use.
Some known and well established Steroids are listed in the Schedule to the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 and other steroids may have been newly manufactured and not listed in the updates to the Schedule. Most common Steroids are prohibited for Supply and categorised as a Class C Drug, similar to Cannabis.
In recent years however, with the advancement of trials and tests on dieting and physique transformations, bodybuilders and athletes also use Amphetamines to raise metabolic rates and burn fat. Amphetamines are usually listed as a Class B Drug and deemed more serious than the Anabolic Steroids.
What we can do
Our Criminal Solicitors are knowledgeable in defending those accused of Conspiracy to Supply Steroids and Conspiracy to Import Steroids. We will identify each type of Steroid, Amphetamine and Growth Hormone for analysis by experts. We will ensure the prosecution’s allegations are sound in law and if they are not, we will apply for the case or the Charges to be dismissed.
We will contest the fanciful value the prosecutors will attach to the steroids and engage Drugs Analysts who specialise specifically in the analysis of Steroids. We can very easily obtain street value and wholesale values and present to the Court the difference in the sums. The further value differentiation between original Growth Hormone refrigerated and supplied in the UK, compared to the Jintropin which is supplied from China and mostly fake, must be raised with the Court to reduce the impact of any Orders.

The laws concerning Conspiracy to Supply Steroids and Conspiracy to Import Steroids commercially is a complex area of drugs law.
