A brief overview of the legality of steroids in different countries of the world
Currently, there is no single legislation in the world that would regulate the legality of the sale of steroids and anabolic drugs. Each country has its own legislative acts that regulate the circulation of these drugs, and they can vary from fully authorized to completely prohibited. It should also be noted that each country also assumes its responsibility for the sale, use, possession of anabolic drugs, which can also vary from a simple confiscation and a fine up to criminal liability with all the ensuing consequences.
In this article we will try to briefly describe the laws of different countries in the context with the ability to buy, receive, store and use anabolic steroids. In any case, this article is for informational purposes only and the author of this article will always be grateful to his readers for any additions, notes, or comments.

I would also like to say a few words about the prevailing myths about postal deliveries:
- Camouflage steroids in perfumes, powders and other items, as well as the use of metal foil in packaging.
This is completely unacceptable, for several reasons:
– When passing through customs control, the parcel may be scanned, and in this case, such a parcel will necessarily attract undue attention, since the scanner will in any case detect the presence of unidentified objects;
– There is a risk of foreign substances entering the hermetically sealed preparations.
- Your package has not been sent within the specified period.
You have nothing to worry about for the following reasons:
– The above drugs are not classified as rapidly deteriorating products;
– We are interested in the safe receipt of the ordered goods by our customers as soon as possible, and safety depends solely on the sending country, the recipient country and the type of drugs ordered;
– Safety conditions should always prevail over conditions of speed of delivery.
