Been out of it for a while guys; now looking for some ancillaries. I've noticed the research sites that I've found that ship domestically all take credit cards. I know the banks are offshore and the connections are secure (SSL, but is this safe in your opinion?
On a related note, what ever happened to the old law allowing an individual to obtain up to a 90 day supply of a prescription drug (NOT controlled drug) without a prescription? This law was enacted years ago (over 20)because of pressure by AIDS activists who wanted to be able to obtain HIV drugs out of country at a fraction of their cost here (if they were even availablr here). I used this loophole many years ago to order all sorts of stuff from overseas.
Not that I were to buy from these sites, but if I were I would get some cash, go to my local grocery store, and buy one of those pre-paid visa gift cards. They act just like a credit card but there's no way to trace them back to you.
SChmazz, I thought about the pre-paid route; however, you still have to register those cards online using a name, address, and SS# due to the Patriot Act in order to be able to make purchases with them online--right?
The policy is still in effect but you cant use it to get steroids into the country. The FDA importation policy does not allow you to import drugs without a prescription. Like you said this loophole was created for HIV sufferer's to use medication that had not yet received FDA approval. They still either require a foreign prescription or a prescription from the US doctor who will be over seeing your treatment.
Plus the policy also stipulates the medication must be for a serious condition for which there are no good alternatives. You might be able to argue the no good alternatives but the FDA isn't going to buy needing big guns as a serious condition(even though it is). Not to mention steroids are available in the US, so theres no reason for a legitimate medical user of steroids to need to import a personal supply.
