Ephedrine Ban

I can’t believe that I have to now put a post about ephedrine in the steroid section! I went on vacation for New Years, I come back and wham! Ephedrine is getting outlawed. I am floored. I searced the archieves loved TC’s rant on this BS. Am I actually going to have to find a guy to hook me up with ephedrine? What the hell is wrong with this picture? You have a couple of lazy ass athletes who die because they try to drop a whole lot of weight in a short amount of time, doing a lot of dumb things all together. Unfortunately, they happen to also be taking ephedrine. Of course ephedrine gets 100% of the blame. I’m pissed. Sorry for my rant.

you can still get ephedrine hcl. just add caffeine and whamo! there are also many other stimulants out there that are legal.

When I heard about the ephedrine ban, the first thing I thought was: isn’t ephedrine still the major component in antihistimines/bronchilators? i can’t see them taking these products off the market because of the ephedrine ban.

the ban is on ephedra, the herbal shit. not on the synthetics.

Check this link. It states that synthetics are subject to stricter regulaions.

Ok, I’ll be the village dumbass here - what is “hcl.” I am guessing the “synthetic?” Is the synthetic like powder?

It stands for hydrochloride.

It’s just a matter of time before the feds close the loopholes. 1fast400 has a limit of 50 on thei Vasopro, which contains Ephedrine HCL.

Brentm, thanks for the

“1fast400 has a limit of 50 on thei Vasopro”

But I don’t know what the fuck you are talking about. My bad, can you explain?

katphan - Vasopro is the name of the ephridine HCL that is offer at 1fast400.com
