New Jersey evaluating muscle addition to anti-steroid effortsLawmakers from New Jersey are seeking to beef up efforts in a sincere attempt to prevent steroid abuse and about to introduce what may be the first law in the United States that will require police and firefighters to be examined by a doctor before they can be prescribed anabolic steroids or human growth hormone.

Assemblyman John McKeon, who authored the bill, said, state taxpayers have been “wrongly paying for millions of dollars in insurance costs for prescriptions that were, in many cases, issued illegally.”

The State Legislature is also evaluating a bill that will establish measures to deter steroid use and performance enhancing supplements among middle school and high school students.
