This cautionary post may be unwanted, it may seem harsh, but please read with an open mind my educated observation. I am not a lawyer, but due to an interest in fitness and because my medical doctor put me on HRT about 10 years ago I have been a frequent visitor to various boards for over a decade and watched alot.
On many boards buys post their cycles, pics of their gear, pics of them with their gear etc. I am not a lawyer but this does not seem smart.
There have been arrests of minors lately simply because they posted pics on FACEBOOK of them with beer or other liqour containers. If you google you can find the links to the news releases. For all anyone knows they could have been empty beer cans filled with water, but it did not stop police from arresting them - largely because apparently their facebook page also discussed their drinking at parties etc.
Within the last month or so a chemical research supplier was found guilty, mostly because of one email he sent telling someone how to use the products for human consumption.
On some boards they say LE is not interested in going for individual users but for dealers, they want the big fish. Steroids are a drug, and out here prisons are full of individual users. In fact I would say there are waayyyyy more personal users in prisons than any other category (dealers, murderers, etc). I saw this after working in the prison for a short time in 2006.
I am not sure if he is still around but there was a guy who went by the name of “Animal”. He sold what I think were the first conversion kits. He was a bicycle competitor. He had a board. When he was out of the country competing in bicycling, the police raided his house, took all sorts of things including his computer. This was 5 years ago or so. He did not go down. Because he had a simple rule that he always followed. I only visited his board a couple of times because he was very arrogant and it kind of ticked me off - but if you broke the rule you got banned.
Nobody could ever post or ask questions via PM or email about what to take, to use, how to use it, how to convert it unless it was described in terms of research on animals. ex. " Question :If someone were to give fina to a 200 LB cow, do you think 6 months would be too long". That question is not posed as a reality its posed theoretically. Apparently if someone emailed Animal and asked him about converting tren for their own use he would not reply, it had to be posed as theory or for research on animals.
I am not advising anybody do this in order to get away with something illegal. It just seems Animal was smart about it. If someone was to engage in something illegal it seems like that would be the smart way to do it to avoid getting caught, although doing illegal things is wrong.
On FACEBOOK kids have gotten busted, not for posession or selling, but simply having a picture of them with beer and writing that they drink at parties. Not a huge leap to think the same could happen to someone posting they use steroids without a prescription.
I am not saying anything, just thinking out loud. It just seems Animal was smart for never giving anyone anything to hang their hat on. LE tried to take him down, house raided by several agencies, took things stored in his house, took computer - and in the end could do nothing. He was back in business.
On the other hand this recent research chem guy was found guilty because of one careless email saying : a person should take x amount.
