Most GNC franchisees are retards who think that because they know about supplements, they know about business. Wrong. Dead wrong.
Looks like your friend is no different if he's giving away a case of Acetabolan III.
Take a pill dude - my friend doesn't claim to be an expert on sups unlike some douchebags on this site - owning a GNC is one of a dozen businesses he owns. He ordered too much of the stuff, it's not selling, so he offered me the case, I didn't ask any questions.
