124 people and busted 56 labs…

This one just came down the pipe:

Federal drug officials say they’ve arrested 124 people and busted 56 labs in the largest illegal steroid investigation in U.S. history.

The Drug Enforcement Administration says it busted 56 steroid labs in 27 states.

The 18-month investigation, dubbed “Operation Raw Deal,” targeted traffickers who allegedly imported raw materials from China and used them to make anabolic steroids, human growth hormone and insulin growth factor, the Drug Enforcement Administration said.

“Today we reveal the truth behind the underground steroid market: dangerous drugs cooked up all too often in filthy conditions with no regard to safety, giving Americans who purchase them the ultimate raw deal,” DEA Administrator Karen Tandy said in a statement.

Authorities made arrests in 27 states, including busts in Los Angeles, California; New York City; San Diego, California; Providence, Rhode Island; and Kansas City, Missouri.

They seized more than 530 pounds of raw materials and 11.4 million steroid dosage units in the United States, officials said, enough to supply hundreds of users.

  1. They seized more than 530 pounds of raw materials and 11.4 million steroid dosage units in the United States, officials said, enough to supply hundreds of users.

    If 1000 people are fewer than “hundreds,” then jackbooted State compassion seized at least 11,400 steroid doses/user. That would be a 31+ year supply, minimum, for each user. Bullshit. If each package weighed a single avoirdupois ounce, we’re talking 355 tons of pharma “seized.” Bullshit.

  2. …simply like the inflated value they give in a pot bust in which oz. prices are ascribed to voluminous quantities…
    …in this case, get that crap out of circulation & put those morons where they belong…

  3. Crazy thing about this, is that alot of this crap came from China. And go figure the upcoming Olympics are going to be there!

  4. Shit, you dicks sound like the “family values” assholes: Drugs are evil/bad/scary, let’s waste an incredible amount of tax money chasing around dealers & labs to incarcerate them for non violent “crimes”.

    Fuck the DEA & the faux “war on drugs”. If you don’t want athletes using, test them, it’s incredibly cheaper & more reasonable than prosecuting & incarcerating the entire planet.

  5. What about the thousands of Jr. highschool and highschool kids using roids and putting their health in serious jeopardy just to look a little more buff for the girls? And I suppose “roid rage” is non violent too? This bust is a good thing IMO.
