Chemicals Sold "For Research Purposes Only"
An Excerpt from Steroidlaw.com

[An Interview by Citruscide*, done exclusively for Chemical Muscle, Elite Fitness, and SteroidLaw.com .]

The proliferation of chemical products being sold online “for research purposes only” has generated countless inquiries about what’s legal and what’s not. Nobody wants to get busted out of ignorance, of course. Citruscide sat down with Rick Collins, New York lawyer, founder of www.SteroidLaw.com, and author of the definitive book on anabolic steroids and bodybuilding drugs, Legal Muscle (www.teamlegalmuscle.com), in an effort to shine a little light into this very dark area.

Citruscide (C): Thanks for offering to share your thoughts on this topic. I can imagine what your schedule is like.

Rick (R): Well, thanks to you for taking the time to do this interview and to offer your thoughts as well, big guy.

C: Let’s start with this: What’s wrong with buying and selling chemical products?

R: Generally, nothing. Chemicals are bought and sold every day. Hydrogen peroxide, ammonium hydroxide, benzyl alcohol, and on and on and on. But, as you know, there are some restrictions.

C: Such as controlled substances, for example?

R: Yes. Any chemicals that are designated as a “controlled substance,” “controlled substance analogue,” or “listed chemical” have restrictions on them. Those terms are defined by Section 802 of Title 21 of the United States Code. The Code is our big book of the laws passed by Congress. Unless we indicate otherwise, people can find all the sections of federal law that we’re going to talk about in Title 21 of the Code.

C: Obviously, the DEA has an interest in any illegal conduct involving controlled substance chemicals or their analogues. What about the FDA? What interest does the FDA have in chemicals?

R: None, unless the chemicals are food, drugs, devices, cosmetics, or dietary supplements for humans or animals. And there has to be the interstate commerce aspect. But the chemical products we’re discussing aren’t being explicitly sold as any of these things. They’re being sold purportedly as chemicals for research purposes only.
