AN AFL aspirant's 18-month ban for importing performance-enhancing drugs will not be ramped up after ASADA opted against launching an appeal.

AFL Victoria slugged VFL star Wade Lees with the suspension from all competitive sport last month, as revealed by the Herald Sun, but Lees feared the anti-drugs body would push for a maximum two-year sanction.

Lees' lawyer received an email from ASADA on Thursday night, confirming the ban would end on November 10 this year.

The three-year saga cost Lees about $13,000 in legal fees and affected his mental state.

"I'm just glad the whole process is over and I'm looking forward to a big return," he said yesterday, refusing to abandon his AFL dream.

In 2010 the Casey Scorpion ordered a fat-burning product from the US.

The $180 substance contained traces of steroids and was intercepted by Australian Customs, which informed ASADA.

Lees, 24, was then charged with ``attempted use of a prohibited substance violation'' and banned by AFL Victoria after Round 7 last season.

Lees, who nominated for last year's draft, said he bought the product to help lower his skin folds and compete with AFL midfielders playing in the VFL.

ASADA swiftly appealed Frankston player Matt Clark's nine-month ban after he failed a drug test he knew was coming.

Since the publicised cases some VFL players and officials have called on AFL Victoria to ramp up its drug education program.
