Are steroids legal?

23rd Apr 2012

Anabolic steroids are Class C drugs to be sold only by pharmacists with a doctor's prescription.
 
It's legal to possess or import steroids as long as they're for personal use. Importation or exportation of steroids for personal use can only be carried out in person. Importation or exportation of steroids for personal use using postal, courier or freight services is now illegal.
 
Possession or importing with intent to supply (which includes giving them to friends) is illegal and could lead to 14 years in prison and an unlimited fine.
