If you are purchasing Raw powders from China, then you are purchasing Raw powders through the black market made up of The guy at the top synthesising the hormone to the guy at the bottom who distributes them to you. Currently, (DECEMBER 2019) there is no offence, other than perhaps some Tax evasion.
JANUARY 2020 this changes. The guy manufacturing and the guy distributing are both now committing a serious offence which is imprisonable up to life, and in some rare cases could even be punishable by death!
Just recently a court in China sentenced nice people for drugs smuggled through the postal system. A total of 19kg was seized, the sentences were indeed life with one sentence being death, although this may be downgraded to life later on.
What does all this mean for the lab owner making steroids?
Quite simply, find a new source for your Raws in another Country. If you are a current UGL purchasing Raws from China, at some point, those Raws are going to dry up or drop in quality considerably to keep the supply chain going for longer.
My Chinese supplier has told me there is nothing to worry about and will keep supplying, what gives?
Of course he is going to tell you that. Imagine if he tells you that he will have to stop selling to you. What will you do? You would already be looking for another source. Its not good business practice to tell you the truth, and trust me, the Chinese are very good at doing business!
Do you really think both your product manufacturer and distributor are going to continue, knowing that if caught the penalty could be life in prison or even death?
What does all this mean for the guy purchasing steroids from the UGL for his own use?
We are now less than 4 weeks away from the new laws taking effect. I am sure that your UGL has already started looking for other options elsewhere. Meanwhile i would imagine he is stocking up on Raw powders. I am going to hesitate a guess that those labs currently obtaining powders from China are out of stock before July 2020 as demand really does exceed supply.
I am a UGL, what other country can you suggest for purchasing Raws?
The current country with the most amount of FDA approved Pharma manufacturing facilities is India with almost double the amount that china has.
Of course that is irrelevant because the UGL purchases from unlicensed unapproved manufacturing plants but it does give us an indication on which country is likely to pick up the pieces here, since where there is demand, there will always be supply. The big question would be, can India handle the same type of pressure that the Chinese can! Again, it is only a matter of time, before India is also a no go. Perhaps Russia or Brazil may enter the market!
Between now and July 2020 what changes can you see taking effect?
Some UGLs will decide that in order to be able to stay in the game for as long as possible they need to start under dosing the product. You can bet your money on those Labs that are already currently under dosing product will do so even more aggressively.
Some UGLs will just turn Scammer sending out product with no compound, more importantly, with such low morals, the same fake compounds being sent out will likely be harmful since no filtration is likely to have occurred.
Those UGLs that have secured a supply may have to raise prices. The price at the Manufacturing and Distributing end could be higher, and thus they will need to reflect those changes.
I would certainly be nervous using any new lab that now comes onto the scene in the next coming months, I would also be nervous using one of the smaller labs that may now start altering dosages. Take regular blood tests to ascertain that the dosage on your product is good. A Testosterone test can give you a very useful insight that could stop you wasting both time and money. I use medichecks.com this particular test will give you useful information.
