Law enforcement agents have arrested seven Florida residents on charges related to the distribution of anabolic steroids and other performance enhancing drugs from Florida-based Biogenesis of America. The now defunct “anti-aging” clinic has been criticized for distributing the drugs to more than a dozen Major League Baseball players, according to CBS Miami. Anthony Publio Bosche, the founder of the company, pleaded not guilty to drug conspiracy charges in a federal court appearance on August 5, 2014. While operating various anti-aging clinics in Miami from 2008 to 2012, Bosch allegedly conspired with high school recruiters and professional athletes to distribute the drugs in Miami-Dade County and elsewhere, a DEA press release indicates. Many of Bosch’s clients believed he was a doctor, though he was not licensed to practice medicine or to prescribe or dispense Schedule III drugs. The seven defendants allegedly provided “dangerous concoctions of performance enhancing drugs to impressionable high school kids and professional athletes on the promise of playing better, recovering faster from injury, and having more energy,” states US Attorney Wilfredo A Ferrer.
