Shugs, in the gym, I’ve been telling people about the impending farewell of MAG-10 and the offer to be announced Friday. But I’m getting a lot of skepticism that this law is for real, and their suppliers have assured them that andro products will keep shipping (not MAG-10, just the usual andro suspects). So my gym friends think I’m Chicken Little, warning that the anabolic sky is about to fall.
I counter that, in times like these, you have to look at what the bigger companies are doing. For example, EAS bailed on ephedra about two years before it was prohibited, because they saw the writing on the wall. It’s the big companies that have the deepest pockets, and in a legally threatening environment, they have the most to lose. Fringe companies, on the other hand, will keep pushing. If they’re busted, they just set up shop under another name.
I argue to my friends that Biotest’s pulling of MAG-10 is similar.
They respond, “Why, if the demand for a product goes sky high, does a company lower the price? Why don’t they just let the stock peter out over time?”
I say because they’ve got to get rid of it before it’s illegal. They ask me to point to a deadline. I can’t. I can only show them a congressional bill without a date or time. They say it’ll be months if not more than a year before all that government processing plays out. They also point to other internet supplement providers whose warnings are tepid at best.
Question: does Biotest have a drop-dead date? Is the sword of Damocles hanging over their head? Or are they just playing it very safe, clearing out their stock sooner rather than later?
How can I explain to my friends the urgency of the situation?
Thanks as always for keeping us informed.
