Alabama bill targets andro, DHEA

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

The sale of dietary supplements containing androstanedione, dehydroepiandrosterone or ephedrine alkaloids to consumers under 18 years of age would be prohibited under a bill recently introduced in the Alabama state legislature. The proposal requires that sellers obtain valid identification from purchasers, and makes violation of the law a Class A misdemeanor. HB 356, sponsored by Rep. Tommy Sherer (D) and House Majority leader Ken Guin (D), was referred to the Health Committee March 15. In other DHEA-related legislative activity, an Oregon state bill would bar school employees from endorsing use of performance-enhancing supplements by students, while a federal bill by Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, would list DHEA as an anabolic steroid under the Controlled Substances Act (1"The Tan Sheet" March 19, 2007, In Brief and 2"The Tan Sheet" March 12, 2007, In Brief)...
