It depends on the state. As far as I know it is not a federally controlled
substance but some states do control it. Its like potassium supplements
which require a prescription in some states if over a certain dosage. In
other words the DEA can't arrest you if they find steroids in your
possession but the local police might.

What really surprises me about this whole thing is that it is being treated
like news. It is common knowledge that athletes have been pumping steroids
into themselves for years. Only the NFL has made it a prohibited substance.
Why all the hype and in particular the pretended shock? Next thing you know
we'll be finding out that NBA players are using cocaine, amphetamines and
other controlled substances.
