Abstract:

As employers, schools, and sports organizations are increasingly mandating drug testing, we are witnessing a concomitant rise in sales of steroids and detoxifying products. It seems drug testing may be spawning new markets. This has been documented by Tunnell (2004) in his exploration of the detox industry. What is perhaps unique is the use of the Internet to market these products. A simple search for "steroids" using the search engine google.com reveals a number of sources to purchase allegedly legal steroids, including information on usage cycles, side effects, and often offering free items like newsletters and magazines. Most sites present themselves as legitimate health authorities, regardless of their actual credentials. Similarly, it is not difficult to find purveyors of detoxification products or of masking agents. One site, dmoz.org, provides links to a number of sources where interested persons can purchase an array of products to clean their systems or mask drug use so as to beat drug tests.

This paper will first chronicle the recent increase in drug testing. Next, it will present an analysis of Web Sites used to sell performance enhancing drugs, as well as sites offering detox products or masking agents. It will provide a description of the number of sites readily available, as well as the claims made by the sites analyzed.
