Federal authorities say a 29-year-old Mandeville man illegally imported drugs designed for men with sexual performance issues and sold them to bodybuilders on the Northshore.

A news release says that Luccas Eastman “imported mislabeled generic versions of drugs, including Tadalafil, from Chinese companies which he then sold to members of the bodybuilding community in the Slidell/Mandeville area, among other consumers.  Tadalafil is a generic version of Cialis.”

According to several online posts, some bodybuilders take erectile dysfunction medications before a workout to promote blood floor.

Eastman pleaded guilty before United States District Court Judge Sarah S. Vance to a one-count bill of information charging him with selling misbranded generic drugs.

He faces a maximum term of up to one year in prison and up to one year of supervised release.  

Sentencing is scheduled for April 29, 2020.
