Hollywood actor pleads guilty to Australian drugs chargesSylvester Stallone, the actor from Hollywood, recently told an Australian court that his importation of two banned muscle building hormones was a “terrible mistake” caused by ignorance of local laws.

Stallone will be sentenced in the next few days after he pleaded guilty to importing dozens of vials of the restricted drugs into Australia during a tour to promote his film, Rocky Balboa.

Stallone’s lawyer, Phillip Boulten, said his client had been taking the drugs under medical supervision for at least six years, and did not realize he was breaking customs laws by bringing them to Australia.

  Celebrity-driven image culture behind growing demand for steroids

Celebrity-driven image culture behind growing demand for steroidsDoping officials and members of the general public are raising their deep concerns over the growing demand and popularity of steroids despite the fact that the government has already claimed that it has already enforced tight control on the manufacture and distribution of steroids and other performance enhancing drugs. But, truth cannot be hidden for long and the underlying truth is that steroid usage is growing at an all-time high.

The biggest reason: celebrity driven image culture.

With news about sportsmen and other celebrities taking up anabolic steroids to stay ahead of the competition and maintain the “invincibility” factor, more and more “followers” have already started using steroids without understanding possible side effects. With big names such as Sylvester Stallone saying that he is an old man jumping around trying to look young and being busted at the Sydney Airport with 48 vials of human growth hormone Jintropin, things cannot be expected to settle down. The only thing that can happen from here on is popularity of steroids.

As per members of the general public and doping officials, things cannot be corrected unless highly stringent measures are implemented. Till this happens, illegal importation, unauthorized steroid usage, and distribution of anabolic steroids will continue despite all odds.

  STEROID USE NEWS ON TIMESUNION.COM’S TOP THREE LIST

50-cent-steroidsTimesunion.com has named the articles that have been viewed most by readers this past year of 2008. The top three are a misspelling of Barack Obama’s last name in Rensselaer County last October, details on the use of  anabolic steroids of different rap artists and other celebrities, and a disrupted graduation due to a public display by a graduate of Saratoga Springs High School.

The article entitled “Steroids beyond sports” drew more than 170,000 people to the web site of Times Union after the public had learned that R&B and rap stars Mary J. Blige, 50 Cent, Timberland, and Wyclef Jean used steroids and injectable growth hormones. This news isn’t the first to be heard in Hollywood, however. Apparently, celebrities make use of such drugs not because they want to improve their performance like athletes do, but because steroids have anti-aging properties.

One of the celebrities identified to have been charged for illegal possession of steroids and human growth hormones was Sylvester Stallone, who was caught during a customs inspection of his luggage back in 2007. Stallone claimed that he needed the drug to slow down his pituitary gland’s production of growth hormone, and to put up with his training. According to the article, the public should focus on the people who provide athletes and celebrities like Stallone the drugs they use, instead of fixating on the athletes and celebrities themselves

  Australian cager gets banned for importing steroids

knox_raiders_steroidsA basketball player for the Knox Raiders in the winter South East Australian Basketball League gets a two-year ban for importing steroids. The Australian Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) made the announcement Thursday.

It was reported that Paul McMaster was searched by Australian Customs officials February this year on his return trip from Southeast Asia. Authorities found numerous tablets in his possession, which were later identified as two types of anabolic steroids.

ASADA said the basketballer confessed to his use of anabolic steroids and waived his right to a hearing. McMaster is eligible to return to the sport in June 2010.

Incidentally, it was also in the month of February 2007 when Hollywood’s big star Sly Stallone was stopped by Customs officers at Sydney airport after 48 vials of human growth hormone (HGH) were found in his luggage. Subsequent searches were conducted on the actor’s private jet and luxury hotel room. Further evidence was reportedly discovered at his hotel suite relating to his importation of illegal compounds.

On May 2007, he was formally convicted of importing banned compounds into Australia and was ordered to pay $9,870 in fines and court costs.

In one of his interviews relating to his HGH use, Stallone stated: “As you get older, the pituitary gland slows and you feel older, your bones narrow. This stuff gives your body a boost and you feel and look good. Doing Rambo is hard work and I am going to be in Burma for a while. Where do you think I am going to get this stuff in Burma?”

Stallone flew to Sydney in February 16, 2007 to promote his film Rocky Balboa.

In his February 2008 interview with Time Magazine, Stallone justified his use of HGH: “Testosterone to me is so important for a sense of well-being when you get older. Everyone over 40 years old would be wise to investigate it because it increases the quality of your life. Mark my words. In 10 years it will be over the counter.”
