The main difference from being charged with anabolic steroid possession versus being charged with possession of anabolic steroids with intent to distribute steroids can be the difference from getting probation compared to many years in jail or prison. With general drugs like cocaine and weed, it is easy to determine the use for personal versus selling based upon the weight amount, but steroid users do not follow the same sets of weights that those users do, so many steroid users get charged with selling rather than simple possession.
Steroid possession of what seems like large quantity of HGH and or anabolic steroid allows the prosecutors to determine that you were engaging in distribution and selling steroids as well when the reality it may have been just personal use. This is a mistake that can be pointed out by an experienced defense attorney regards steroid cases. Steroid users purchase in large amounts as opposed to cocaine users. This pertains to other chemicals besides steroids such as SERMs, SARMS, Sermorelin Acetate, GHRP-6, GHRP-2, IGF-1 LR3, Pramipexole HCL, Isotretinoin, Tamoxifen Citrate, Clomiphine Citrate, AROMATASE INHIBITORS, Anastrozole, Letrozole, Exemestane, GW-501516, BETA AGONISTS, Liothyronine Sodium, Clenbuterol HCL, 5-ALPHA REDUCTASE BLOCKERS, Finasteride, ENZYME INHIBITORS, Sildenafil Citrate, Tadalafil Citrate (research chemicals).
