Steroids illegal, but not tobacco/alcohol???
This topic REALLY pisses me off. :pissed:
I just want to hear what you guys think about this. I mean, I NEED some justification as to why steroids are illegal, yet tobacco and alcohol aren't.
Cigarettes and booze have killed 100% MORE people than steroids ever have.
Ask someone if they know anyone who has died from steroids. if they can even name someone, it'll more than likely be "Lyle Alzhedo".
Ask someone if they know anyone who has died from tobacco (cancer, heart disease, emphyzema) and/or alcohol (poisoning, drunk driving), and more than likely they'll say "my mother or father or aunt or uncle or grandparent or friend or cousin or classmate or neighbor".
Booze and tobacco contribute to the NUMBER ONE leading killer in the United States, heart disease. oh ya, AND number two...cancer. (they actually just switched "places" as 1 and 2, so cancer is now the leading killer).
anyways, as you can see, this shit just irks the hell outta me. Steroids are illegal b/c of the evil stigmas attached to them by society, PLAIN AND SIMPLE. Ask someone, ANYONE for that matter, about steroids, and most of them will give you a dumbass answer that they're harmful to your health, with ZERO evidence to back it up (some of our very own IM'er's have been guilty of this).
So PLEASE, PLEASE gimme some of your guys (and gals) opinions. I need SOME kind of reason as to why they're illegal, while i read about people dying from cancer and drunk driving every single day in the newspaper.
