Use of steroids in County on a highHealth experts have revealed that there has been a rise in the use of steroids in County Londonderry.

A higher level of Nubain use, a drug used by bodybuilders to go through the pain barrier, was identified by the research.

The tall claims of anti-doping officials and researchers seem to have vanished with this finding.

Phony repairman stole drugs from pharmacyJoshua Paul Fleetwood, 25, was arrested by authorities last Friday for accusations of attempted burglary, and drug possession.

According to police reports, the burglaries occurred in August with two incidents happening in Metairie and one in Kenner.

A man reportedly claiming as a repairman sent by the pharmacy’s head office entered the stores and requested access to safes.

As per state law, safes are used to store prescription drugs classified as controlled dangerous substances.

He then told pharmacy staff that he was there to conduct repairs or replace batteries in the safe doors.

Pharmacists would often notice missing drugs only after the repairman has left.

The latest burglary happened in a CVS at West Esplanade Ave in Metairie. Inventory count revealed missing bottles of oxycodone, Adderall and methadone. It is not known, however, if Fleetwood is involved in this case.

A search of Fleetwood’s residence revealed bottles of anabolic steroids possibly taken from the burglaries. Two counts of drug possession charges were added according to arrest reports.

He was temporarily released from the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center due to overcrowding. His bail was set at $260,000.

Fleetwood has previous criminal records at Jefferson Parish for possessions of heroin and hydrocodone.

  STEROID TRAFFICKING BEATS HEROIN TRAFFICKING

bayer_heroin_steroidsIf you were to guess which illegal drug is selling like hotcakes, you would probably think that it would be something addictive like heroin. Well, according to Director David Howman of the World Anti-Doping Agency or WADA, there is more money made in selling anabolic steroids than in trafficking of heroin. He released this statement at the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission where he was a speaker during a recent symposium.

Steroids are banned in most sporting events of almost any sport. According to Howman, even though there are laws on the use of performance enhancing drugs, some sports such as baseball are not that strict in enforcing these laws. Baseball officials have already seen their lack of control over their athletes after the Mitchell Report was released last year. Many athletes manage to outsmart the system though.

Howman also highlighted several ways in which athletes try to ‘beat the system’ to avoid detection of doping, such as directly injecting urine into the bladder using a syringe and needle or through using a device known as a ‘Whizzinator’.

The Whizzinator comes as a kit complete with dried urine and syringe, heater packs, and a false penis which athletes use to fraudulently beat drugs tests. There is also said to be a female version.

The only chance to truly eradicate the trafficking of steroids is if police forces would coordinate with each other, no matter what state or country. Howman cited the case of Marion Jones wherein even the Interpol was set to help if the athlete had been out of the country.

  NASCAR will welcome 2009 with tougher dope testing

nascar-steroidsAccording to AP report, NASCAR is likely to start testing drivers by the third week of January under anti-doping policy.

NASCAR is implementing tougher policy for use of anabolic steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs. Said policy also applies to illegal drugs and abuse of prescription medications.

Crew members, meanwhile, are required to submit results from an approved lab by Jan.16. A memo was sent to teams enumerating the prohibited compounds for which crew members must be tested. No specific guidelines were provided for drivers as NASCAR reserves the right to screen drivers for any compounds. However, according to a NASCAR’s spokesman, drivers will definitely be screened for performance-enhancing drugs.

The tougher policy was adopted partly because of former Truck Series driver Aaron Fike’s public admission that he had used heroin even on days he raced. Veteran drivers like Tony Stewart and Kevin Harvick urged the association to strengthen its policy regarding the use of banned compounds.

In September this year, Ron Hornaday Jr admitted he used a testosterone cream during the 2004 and 2005 to treat a medical condition. Hornaday is suffering from Graves’ disease, a thyroid disorder characterized by goiter and exophthalmos (bulging of the eyes).

The memo, dated Dec. 8, is the first time the new policy has been laid out in writing and specifies who falls under the guidelines. Those who must be tested before Jan. 16 include: pit crew members, including “over-the-wall” crew members, the crew chief, car chief, team members responsible for tires, fuel and pit crew operation, spotters and race-day support personnel that includes engineers, engine tuners, shock specialists, chassis specialists and tire specialists.

Among the substances those participants must be tested for are:

_ Seven different amphetamines, including methamphetamine and PMA, a synthetic psychostimulant and hallucinogen.

_ Three drugs classified under ephedrine.

_ 13 different narcotics, including codeine and morphine.

_ Ten different benzodiazepines and barbituates.

_ Marijuana, cocaine, zolpidem, nitrites, chromates and drugs that can increase specific gravity.

Under the old policy, NASCAR only implemented random test based on suspicion of abuse. Under the new guidelines everyone will be tested before the season begins, and random testing will continue throughout the year. NASCAR expects to randomly test 12 to 14 individuals per series each weekend in 2009.
