Designer Anabolic Steroids Control Act 2014
Like any other major piece of legislation that has yet to be signed into law (as of 19 December, 2014, anyways), pieces of this legislation may change, the modified, or removed and replaced completely. We have tried to keep up with these changes as much as possible, and will promise to do so in the future, but it's a good idea for you to keep apprised of any additions, changes, or subtractions that may occur from here until signing day.

If you have been involved in the weight lifting, powerlifting, bodybuilding, or just general workout scene for any amount of time, you've probably run across at least a handful of "designer steroids".

Advertised, marketed as, and sold under the guise of being dietary supplements, these "designer steroids" are as close to the "real deal" is you're going to get when it comes to over-the-counter anabolic steroids.

With many of the same benefits as those incredible muscle building drugs (without any of the regulation and oversight that the US government has crashed down on top of anabolic steroids), if easy to understand why so many people have turned to these supplements to give them every edge and advantage when they are building their bodies.

However, all of that is under threat right now – this very minute – as there is new legislation making its way through the U.S. Congress that threatens to completely overhaul this industry from top to bottom, and outright ban or at least limit the sale of legal anabolic steroids today.

Obviously, if this is going to affect you in any way whatsoever, you want to make sure that you know EXACTLY what is going on, and that you stay up prized of the situation as much as possible.

Here's our effort to help you out!

Bipartisan group looks to smash designer steroid marketplace

Incredibly surprising to most is the fact that Republicans and Democrats are seeming to get together on this effort to find and root out all of the legal anabolic steroid solutions on the market today.

Obviously, the political climate for both of these parties is anything but favorable towards one another (or towards each other, for that matter), which makes them deciding to team up to tackle this problem even more curious.

However, the group, led by Rep. Joe Pitts (a Republican from Pennsylvania) and Rep. Frank Pallone (a Democrat from New Jersey) introduced legislation into the House of Representatives with wording specifically established to cripple, destroy, and outright make it illegal the entire legitimate "over-the-counter" anabolic steroid industry.

There was some resistance (especially from independent thinking and more moderate Democrats and Republicans alike), but there isn't enough resistance expected to stop this bill from shooting all the way up to the Senate – at the very least.

The government isn't the only one in on the game

Mike Green (VP of the Council for Responsible Nutrition, a longtime enemy of these designer supplements) has been pushing the bill forward as much as humanly possible, using any and all power, influence, and leverage she can't to have it become a law.

The Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) has long been after these legal anabolic steroids and other pumped up dietary supplements, claiming that they create an unsafe situation for users that may not be aware of exactly what they're purchasing.

Their beef is that these supplements are sold under the guise of being dietary supplements and not potent and powerful steroids or muscle building drugs, and that consumers are going to be put in very sticky situations when they learn that they have been duped.

Not only that, but CRN is concerned that when consumers learn of the old-fashioned switcheroo they are going to be so upset that it damages the reputation and industry of legitimate (in their eyes, anyways) dietary supplement companies.

The DEA is (surprise, surprise) behind this effort, as it would extend to them a considerable amount of extra power and control that they may not have had otherwise.

Most interestingly about this situation is the fact that the Designer Anabolic Steroids Control Act of 2012 was supposed to have addressed this issue completely – but now representatives and senators want to add 27 more compounds added to the "banned substance list".

The future of the Designer Anabolic Steroids Control Act of 2014

It's not looking good.

The United States Senate passed the entirety of the bill on December 11, 2014, which means that it is going to be presented to the president in good time so that he can sign his name to the bill and turn this legislation into the world of law.

President Obama has now signed the DASCA 2014 into Law, with may online designer steroid and prohormones suppliers removing items from their stock list and websites.
