Collins, McDonald & Gann is Available to Provide Legal Counsel in Peptide and Research Chemical Cases Brought in Greenbelt, Maryland

The legal implications surrounding the sale of peptides (e.g., Ostarine, Melanotan I, Melanotan II, Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (“CJC-1295”), Growth Hormone Releasing Peptide-6 (“GHRP-6”), GHRP-2, GHRH-RP, Myostatin Propeptide and Mechano Growth Factor) and other “research chemicals” (e.g., sildenafil, tadalafil, letrozole, anastrozole, clenbuterol, clomiphene, T3, T4 and tamoxifen) remains mired in a complex area of criminal law that is confusing to many laypersons, with many peptides and active ingredients in pharmaceutical drugs being marketed and distributed for “Research Purposes Only.”   The sale and marketing of these peptides and research chemicals is increasingly being investigated by the FDA – and more and more “research chemical” companies and their owners are finding themselves being prosecuted by the Department of Justice. Due to the location of FDA’s headquarters in Maryland, a number of these criminal cases are being brought in the Greenbelt Division of the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland, in Greenbelt, Maryland.
