New York Criminal Defense Lawyer Lisa Pelosi
The public health law in New York specifically describes anabolic steroids as
- Any drug or hormonal substance, chemically and pharmacologically related to testosterone (other than estrogens, progestins, corticosteroids and dehydroepiandrosterone) that promotes muscle growth, or any material, compound, mixture or preparation which contains any amount of [numerous] substances.
The law also goes on to say that
- Any individual who knowingly and willfully administers to himself or another person, prescribes, dispenses or distributes such substances for other than implantation to cattle or nonhuman species shall be subject to the same penalties as a practitioner who violates the provisions of this section or any other penalties prescribed by law.
In other words, unless you’re using anabolic steroids on cattle or non-humans, you could be guilty of a crime. The penalties for using anabolic steroids on yourself or another person can vary, so it’s important to discuss your situation with a top New York criminal defense attorney.
