is it legal to bring steroids in the u.k
if i were to go to another country like turkey or mexico where u can buy steroids from anywhere would i be able to just put them into my suitcase and bring them back to the u.k or would it be better just to airmail them.
i heard that it was legal to import steroids into the uk for your own personnel use but its illegal to sell them.
how can customs tell how much u will use for yourself.

no its not. of course not...I dunno how tight the customs are in the UK, in Germany u don t have too many problems if u r coming from Turkey. if u r buying larger amounts I would advise u to send it per airmail...

From what I can gather it's legal to bring (posess) ''3 months supply'' of prescription medicine through UK customs (without a prescription) - so if you dont take the piss you should be OK - I think this wouldn't apply to UG labs gear tho - just pharm grade.
Still you're prolly better off just sending it to avoid any possible complications.

You are fine to bring in steroids to the UK so long as you can show them its for your personal use, there is no set amount you can bring in but i wouldnt push it to much,
i was stopped with over a 1000 pounds worth at customs and i was fine i just gave them all my courses for that year which was the same amount in my suitcase, you will be fine so long as you can prove its for yourself
03-12-2005, 08:34 AM #11
How did you prove it ? just by telling them what cycles you do in a year ?
03-12-2005, 08:45 AM #12

i hope its not illegal, i presume it is the same as cannabis will be when downgraded from class B to class C i.e. legal for possesion, illegal to supply.

it is not an offence to possess steriods for your own personal use, difficulty of this is deciding and proving personal use,
all i did is show them the courses for the steroids i had in my case and they were satisfied it was for personal use.
03-12-2005, 09:03 AM #15

Dont suppose you have a link booz?

this is the link:
The effects, the risks, the law.
As a pharmaceutical product, steriods come with many different trade names. Commonly used anabolic steroids are Anavar , Sustanon and Dianabol , Winstrol , Deca -Durabolin . Also known as roids, juice, and gear.
Steroids are synthetic substances similar to, and often including, the male hormone testosterone .
In medicine, steroids are used to treat muscle weakness after surgery. Elsewhere, some bodybuilders use steroids as well as others who think it'll improve their body image.
Comes in pill form, or as liquid which is injected. Taking a number of different steroids (and other substances) at the same time is known as 'stacking'. Anabolic steroids are banned in most sports. An athlete found using them is often suspended and stripped of previous titles.
Users generally claim steroids make them feel more aggressive and able to train harder.
If combined with regular exercise, it can help build up muscle. However, it is not yet certain that steroids actually improves muscle power and athletic performance.
The drug can also reduce the recovery time needed after heavy training.
Unwanted side effects associated with steroid use include irritability and aggressiveness ('roid rage '), acne, accelerated hair loss, and a bloated appearance.
In women steroids have a masculinising effect. This can lead to growth of facial and body hair, baldness, a deepening voice deepening, shrinking breasts, enlargement of the clitoris and disruption of the menstrual cycle.
For men the risks include erection problems, breast growth, shrinking testicles, reduces sperm levels and possible sterility.
Some of these side-effects, such as breast growth, can be irreversable without surgery.
Long term heavy use may damage the heart, liver and kidneys. Young people taking steroids may find their growth rate adversely affected.
Injecting steroids can damage veins, while sharing needles or syringes places users at risk of infection from HIV and hepatitis.
Steroids can only be obtained legally with a doctor's prescription from a pharmacist. Possession without prescription isn't illegal but supplying steroids (even for free) carries Class C penalties.
If you are planning on taking steroids:
It is possible that using anabolic steroids alongside some anti-HIV drugs may worsen the side effects of each drug.
Many steroids are counterfeit. As a rough guide, it may well be fake if it doesn't have packaging and instructions. Also, bone fide steroids have a lot of number and expiry dates printed on the box, which should be in a different coloured ink. If in doubt, chuck them out.
Never inject steroids into a vein. This is likely to produce a fatal reaction.

Possesion isnt an offence for personal use, supply and intent to supply is which carries a prison sentance,
so longs as you can prove its for personal use at customs you will be fine, thats if you get stopped!!

i had a package of mine opened from thailand by uk customs, they just taped it up again and sent it on its way, no problem for me at all!
import and possession for personal use is fine, just dont take the piss! dont risk any hassle and send it, its most likely to come thru
good luck bro!
