Two New Bills To Address Steroid Use By New Jersey Firefighters

[fblike]Today in New Jersey, a state assemblyman will unveil legislation that will require law enforcement and firefighters to undergo fitness for duty evals if they are prescribed anabolic steroids or human growth hormone. Another bill will urge the Attorney General to add steroids to the list of substances that can be randomly tested for.

This is a reaction to a special report by The Star-Ledger last month that showed hundreds police and firefighters obtained steroids and growth hormone from a Jersey City doctor. You can read that series HERE

Of the fire departments and number of firefighters listed in the report were: Bayonne fire department (2), Edison fire department (1), Harrison Township fire department (4), Hoboken fire department (2), Jersey City fire department (27), Linden fire department (1), Newark fire department (2), North Hudson fire department (3), and Paterson fire department (1). A majority of users were law enforcement.
