I recently started to research life extension clinics and noticed Oasis mentioned here and on other boards. I googled their name and found this anti-steroid rant from a Connecticut paper. What I found interesting is that they say ordering trough longevity clinics like Oasis violates laws and regulations in 38 states.They do not mention which laws and which regulations. Does anyone know if that is correct, since the only attraction to a place like Oasis for me would be an issue of legality.
Here is a bottom part of that very lame and biased article;
You can get a prescription for steroids at Oasis Longevity & Rejuvenation Institute of Delray Beach, Fla. All you have to do is send in medical history, results of a blood test and take a physical exam, copy of your driver’s license and a signed treatment agreement, according to the Hartford Courant.
An increasing number of steroid users believe that this can be done. In the chat rooms of the major online steroid forums, users tout Oasis as an alternative to the underground labs and illegal online steroid peddlers, the Courant reports.
Oasis sponsors links on these sites and the owner of one forum urges his brethren to “avoid the unregulated crap that can make you sick or worse” and to take “the legal route” to buying steroids.
The Courant warns that the “patients” never see the doctor who prescribes the steroids. There is no valid doctor-patient relationship and the prescriptions don’t meet national medical standards. They violate laws or regulations in 38 states, including Connecticut.
What are steroids? According to the Courant report, they are a Schedule 111 controlled drug, like painkillers and sedatives such as Vicodin and Seconal. To use them legally, you need a valid prescription and a medical reason.
There are not enough investigators to monitor all the sources for steroids. Oasis states that its methods are legal; however, Florida regulators disagree.
James McDonough, head of Florida’s Office of Drug Control, which is responsible for coordinating the state’s fight against drug abuse and illicit drugs, said in an interview with the Courant that steroids are not legal.
The major product lineup at Oasis is testosterone, a naturally occurring male hormone. In steroids, it is a chemically recreated building block and the basic ingredient in any anabolic steroid that is specifically designed to add muscle mass, the Courant reports.
Why can’t these users see their own doctors? They can’t contact their doctors because they are using steroids for non-medical reasons. Who makes the money? The on-line seller.
