Libs of TikTok shared a screenshot of a post in which Eli Erlick spoke about engaging in an effort to distribute prescription hormone medications to people.
“There are over 20 states trying to criminalize hormone therapy, particularly for trans youth. So, my friends and I had an idea: sending out our extra prescriptions around the country. If you need hormones, I’m working with a distribution network to get you access. Everything is free, no questions asked. We have hundreds of doses of testosterone, estradiol, and spironolactone available right now. All are prescribed by doctors and unused. Each package comes with information on dosage, obtaining bloodwork, etc,” Erlick wrote.
“I realize this is only a band-aid solution: we need full access to affirmative medical care from professionals immediately. However, missing a single dose of hormones can be devastating (especially for trans teens and those new to hormones)! These laws are outrageous and I can’t wait for them to be overturned. In the meantime, DM me if you need HRT or if you have overprescribed hormones you’d like to send out,” Erlick’s post read.
“Wow @EliErlick is sending drugs to children across the country without prescriptions, parental consent, or any legal authority whatsoever. This is a crime on several different levels,” Walsh remarked when retweeting the Libs of TikTok post.
Erlick tagged Walsh and Libs of TikTok in an Instagram story that featured a screenshot of Walsh’s tweet: “Thanks for the free advertising,” Erlick declared.
Libs of TikTok also highlighted a comment in which Erlick had written, “Realistically, I can ship anywhere in North America.”
Libs of TikTok and Walsh both said that they reported the scheme to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.
“Submitting a tip to the DEA right now to report Eli Erlick’s confessed conspiracy to ship prescription hormone pills to minors nationwide and internationally,” Walsh tweeted.
“I submitted a tip to the DEA regarding this international drug operation,” Libs of TikTok tweeted.
