Description

This investigation revealed that those interested in purchasing steroids could obtain them from eBay. Drugs were listed under the guise of books, pamphlets or pictures about steroids and therefore got past eBay site security. This was of special concern because of the availability to teenagers. This story resulted in eBay cracking down on steroid peddlers and them referring some cases to the law enforcement.
