Steroids Smuggled from China

For any of you readers who have attended one of our Hoot’s Chalk Talk programs, you will recall that we explain that the source of most of the steroids being sold on the street is China.  And, that as a result, the quality and “cleanliness” of these drugs is no where near what it should be!!  A substantial percentage have been found to be contaminated with lead, mercury, zinc, tin, and/or arsenic.

“Bossman”, “Gasman” and “Triple H”: The Guys Who Smuggled Your Steroids from China

From cocaine to black-market cigarettes, Miami has long been America’s preferred gateway for smugglers. Add Chinese steroids to the list.
