A legislation meant for curtailing steroid use by student-athletes received final legislative approval by the full Assembly by a vote of 74-2 and is on the verge on being passed after being sent to the Governor.

Under the bill, all public school coaches and non-public interscholastic sports, dance, and cheerleading coaches would be required to incorporate a gender-specific program designed for limiting the use of steroids, alcohol and other drugs and to promote healthy nutrition and exercise into the training regimen of the team. The bill (S-834/A-2454) would codify recommendations from the 2005 Governor’s Task Force on Steroid Use and Prevention to establish measures for deterring the use of anabolic steroids and other performance enhancing supplements in middle school and high school athletes.

“Coaches as well as student athletes need to fully understand the dangers of steroid use and abuse,” said Assemblywoman L. Grace Spencer (D-Essex). “The earlier we can impress this on our student athletes, the better their health – both mental and physical – will be as adults.”

Under the bill, the state Department of Education (DOE) and the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association (NJSIAA) would work jointly for developing and implementing a program of random steroid testing of student athletes who qualify to compete in championship tournaments sanctioned by the NJSIAA.

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 to consider a bill, which strengthens measures to prevent steroid use and performance enhancing supplements used to improve performance by middle school and high school students.

Focus on effects of dietary supplements among war zone troopsDietary supplements used by weight lifters for increasing muscle mass might be the next possible target on military’s list of forbidden vices for deployed troops.

Col. Erin Edgar, a physician who commanded the 28th Combat Support Hospital in Baghdad in 2006 and 2007, said 20 percent of 2,332 cases of soldiers complaining of palpitations or fainting spells were reported using either performance enhancing supplements or prescription psychotropic drugs.

Colonel Edgar did call for removing legal performance-enhancing supplements from stores on military bases though not prepared to advocate a ban on the products.
