    Steroids illegal, but not tobacco/alcohol???

    This topic REALLY pisses me off.

    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.
    You're a funny guy, Sully, I like you. Dat's why I'm going to kill you lahst.

    I cant say much other than I AGREE!! Its purely political IMHO.
    im thinking it must cost a lot more to put together "narc teams" to shut down the distribution of aas/ph than to legislate usage!!
    Life is what you make of it, not what it makes you...TAKE CHARGE!

    oh ya, and i almost forgot the most important part....
    I wonder how many BAD things happen b/c people drink, aside from the worst (death)

    i wonder how many families get torn apart every year by alcohol. I wonder how many traffic accidents happen. I wonder how many fights break out. I wonder how many people's lives get ruined b/c they get addicted.

    What i do know, is that in 5 years of college, EVERY SINGLE physical fight and schoolwide riot was alcohol induced.

    But keep banning testosterone cuz i wanna get bigger!

    Even that is bullshit.

    And when you do get bigger you might gain extra confidence, find that being healthy is a priority and decide that drinking/smoking is unnecessary for your happiness thus taking money out of pockets trickling all the way into DC.

    I was just saying, he's who people would name if they could name anyone (and even his case wasn't factual)

    C.R.E.A.M

    Money rules the game.

    Steroids aren't Cash Cows so they can't pay extreme lobbyists and buy off politicians.

    Why aren't steroids Cash Cows, because they don't give instant gratification, you use them you still have to work hard to get the benefits. Pound a pint, puff a cig your'e getting instant gratification all while lounging in your Lazy-Boy.

    we have already discussed this numerous times, it is politics and money, it is not about danger or how many people die.

    tobacco and alcohol bring in millions of dollars to the government here as well thru taxes, the pharmaceutical industry has a big influence on the gov as well, probably the main reason ephedra was banned, because it worked.

    as I said in another thread, it makes no sense to ban PH's, it makes sense to ban 1-test products since they are an anabolic steroids, but PH's are natural supps that must be converted by the body in order to be active, they are not drugs.
