More A-Roid lies, according to ESPNdeportes.com:
According to the official in charge of the agency which regulates pharmaceutical drugs in the Dominican Republic, Primobolan was not available for legal purchase, over-the-counter or with a prescription in his country between 2001 and 2003.
Dr. Pia Veras, who oversees the regulatory agency, told ESPNdeportes.com that Primobolan is known as "boli" in the streets of Dominican Republic, and was not legal for purchase during the aforementioned years.
"What Alex Rodriguez stated at the press conference [in Tampa] doesn't make sense," Veras said. "It is important for us to clarify that such substance has not been registered and is not currently registered for legal sale in Dominican pharmacies -- not now and the same applies for the years 2001 to 2003." ...

"No pharmacy carries this product; no pharmacy has this product as registered in its inventory," said [Dr. Milton Pinedo, president of the Dominican Federation of Sports Medicine] ... "You can get this but you have to go to the underground market."
