    New Jersey — Reuters is reporting on a new law proposed by New Jersey lawmakers that intends to curb steroid use by police officers and firefighters:

    Law enforcement steroid use is a problem around the country and, given that steroid use can cause aggression, can invite problems for police, said Larry Gaines, chairman of the Department of Criminal Justice at California State University in San Bernadino, California.

    “Aggression is not very common but nonetheless it’s a possible problem,” Gaines said. “If it does occur, you could see lawsuits against police departments regarding citizens injured from steroid rage.”

    The New Jersey measures come in response to reports last month of a local doctor who illegally supplied hundreds of police and firefighters with anabolic steroids, human growth hormones and other muscle-building drugs.
