Lawmakers Push Ban on Herbal Viagra Sold at Dennis Hof Brothel after Lamar Odom’s Overdose!

ALBANY — Lamar Odom’s near-deadly binge on drugs, hookers and herbal sex supplements has moved two state lawmakers to take a hard look at stopping so-called herbal Viagra.

“This incident raises serious concerns about FDA enforcement of prescription drugs,” said state Sen. Jeff Klein (D-Bronx).

Klein was furious to discover the FDA knew Reload and other similar herbal supplements contained the same prescription-only ingredient that’s in Viagra but did nothing to remove it from store shelves. The products — with names like Weekend Warrior and Hard Wang — can be found in Bronx bodegas, as well as Nevada brothels.

The FDA issued warnings about the supplements two years ago, but regulators have had trouble removing them from the market.

They’re largely sold by fly-by-night companies that simply shut down their Web sites and disappear when confronted, only to later repackage the products with new names and Web sites.

“A lot of these products are made with little or no oversight in foreign countries,” said Sen. Jose Peralta (D-Queens). “We don’t know what manufacturing standards are in many of these places.”
