Springfield, III. On July 26th, III.Gov. Rod Blagojevich signed into law S.B. 102, which amends the Illinois Controlled Substances Act to include dietary supplements containing ephedrine or anabolic steroid precursors, including DHEA. Effective immediately, the amended act deems it a Class A misdemeanor to sell or supply supplements containing the prohibited ingredients. It also requires retailers in the state to verify the age of anyone attempting to buy such products, it the person appears under 18 years of age. As ephedrine alkaloids and andro-related products are already banned by federal law, this illinois ban takes the further step to include DHEA.
