RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) – It's been dubbed Hollywood's big secret -- a magic weight loss pill, that can help you drop pounds in a matter of days.

The drug is called Clenbuterol -- and not only is it illegal for human consumption -- it's dangerous, and potentially deadly.

These pills are relatively cheap -- Clenbuterol typically sells for about a dollar a pill...but recently, the FDA has warned it will consider criminal enforcement action for the advertising, sale, and use of Clenbuterol in this country.
