CLASS C Drugs
Possession of a Class C
drug can result in 2 years in prison and unlimited fine.
Possession with intent to
supply can result in 14 years plus unlimited fine.
Anabolic steroids are often
used by body builders and other sportspeople to cheat. They promote
muscle growth, which develops strength faster but there are many side
effects, some of which are fatal. Many famous body builders have died
from heart attacks and strokes while still relatively young. Others
have had to had major heart surgery over the past few years to try and
repair the damage from abusing steroids- one former, very famous Mr
Universe winner who starred in some of the biggest Hollywood films
among them. Males can also develop some female body parts and females
can take on some male characteristics and physical attribute through
sustained steroid use. It is illegal, in the UK, to sell steroids.
THESE SHOULD NOT BE CONFUSED WITH OTHER TYPES OF STEROIDS PRESCRIBED
BY DOCTORS FOR VARIOUS AILMENTS INCLUDING ASTHMA- THEY ARE DIFFERENT
AND ARE MEDICALLY SUPERVISED!
