Vitamin B12 injections are widely available on various web sites and at the likes of weight loss clinics, spas or cosmetic stores. They promise weight loss, increased energy and a boost to metabolism.

However, B12 injections require a prescription and should be administered only under the direction of certain medical professionals. Individuals who unlawfully administer and dispense vitamin B12 injections can be prosecuted for a Class 4 felony.
