No
Military Lawyer: Michael Bradley, Lawyer replied 5 months ago

i would being caught with illegal steroids opens you up to both a criminal prosecution or a dishonorable

if you have them I would dispose of them

they can cause a lot more bad than good

What is most likely to happen if I got caught with them red handed.. chapter out of the army or jail time.. or both..?
Military Lawyer: Michael Bradley, Lawyer replied 5 months ago

depending on the amount that the person was carrying would lead to the charge

also the person's past incident history would also be an issue

they could be given a diversionary program

it would be realistic that it would lead to chapter out

jail time probably not realistic depending on the amount
