TORONTO, ON – We are still investigating the police raid which took place under the guidance of ‘Health Canada’ in January 2017, when they seized during a police raid, unauthorized health products from the ’24 Hour Adult Mart’ located at 538 Yonge Street.
The “Health Canada Agency” claims that three of the seized products are referred to on the street by Gay men as “poppers” which they say can be dangerous if inhaled or ingested. They further said that “poppers” is the slang among gay men for products that contain alkyl nitrites — labelled for use as leather cleaners, room deodorizers or liquid incense. Normally used by Gay bottoms who are prepared to engage in anal sex. It is known in some circles to be inhaled or ingested for recreational purposes as well.
The agency states that it is difficult to control how much a man inhales and they can accidentally overdose. (Yeah, sure!)
The Health Canada investigators further stated that they confiscated other products that are promoted for sexual enhancement and labelled to contain drugs — DHEA, pregnenolone, and yohimbe/yohimbine. Investigators say that it may pose serious health risks.
Health Canada says that the following products were confiscated from the ’24 hour Adult Mart’; Rush, Ram, The Original Jungle Juice Platinum, 7K, Extenze Male Supplement, Gun Oil High Caliber Performance, Herbal Viva, Herbal Vivid, LipsTenZen, Max Desire, Max Stamina, Passion Classic, Red Lips Premium 1 capsule, Rock On, Rodeo Fantasy, and Wet XXX. Health Canada investigators confirmed that they these products were seized from 24 Hour Adult Mart in Toronto.
The Health Canada Agency stated the following in a prepared statement;
“Consumers should stop using these products and consult with a health-care professional if they have used any of these products and have health concerns.
DHEA is a controlled drug that can cause higher than normal levels of female and male hormones in the body and could increase the risk of prostate, breast, ovarian, and other hormone-sensitive cancers, Health Canada says in a release. It says potential side effects include serious cardiovascular disease, as well as changes in fertility and sperm production.
Pregnenolone is a prescription drug that can cause higher than normal levels of female and male hormones in the body and could increase the risk of prostate, breast, ovarian, and other hormone-sensitive cancers, says Health Canada.
It says yohimbine is a prescription drug and should be used only under the supervision of a health care professional. Its use may result in serious adverse reactions, particularly in people with high blood pressure, or heart, kidney or liver disease, says Health Canada.”
