Make Steroids Legal
Make It Legal & Make It Safer
In many countries around the world the use of anabolic steroids for the improvement of body and specifically muscle condition is outlawed.
In this day and age, when millions of people around the world are legally allowed to damage themselves with the unregulated use of alcohol, tobacco products, poor dietary habits and lack of exercise I have got to ask why we (as a society) feel the need to inhibit an individual's right to improve his or her physical condition through the use of scientifically approved steroids.
Most of the negative hype concerning Anabolic Steroids comes from an uninformed minority. It is often branded in the same light as use of illegal recreational drugs and the resultant, often hysterical, reaction is so misguided.
People mainly take steroids in order to help improve their physical condition. Steroids help by increasing the growth of muscles. However for this to take effect the steroid ingestion must be accompanied by good nutrition and a planned regular exercise program. Both of which are the basic requisites for a healthy lifestyle. How can any sane person liken these activities to the addiction crazed consumption of hard drugs in the pathetic pursuit of a mythical utopia?
As a result of the hysteria and the international press jumping on the bandwagon few people realise that there are two sides to this story. Fewer again realise that there is an alarming absence of hard facts when it comes to scientific evidence supporting the anti-steroid stance. Not a single study exists that supports the theory that controlled steroid use has a serious detrimental effect on a users health. Take a look at the video documentary below this article and judge for yourselves.
Where Are All The Bodies?
Interesting huh..? Yes steroids can give the user an unfair advantage and this is the reason behind the outcry over the so-called baseball steroid scandals. Yes they can be dangerous to minors; but so is alcohol and nobody would advocate the use of either in anyone yet to gain adulthood.
Yes you need to know what you are doing, but by driving their use underground you are making access to this knowledge even harder to find thereby achieving the opposite of the intended goal and making their use even more dangerous.
A second result of driving their use underground is the need for anyone wishing to make use of steroids to purchase from uncontrolled sources. In those countries where a prescription is not required to purchase steroids, mainly Southeast Asia, the outcry against them is a total mystery. Their beneficial properties are well understood and they are available from licensed pharmacies. They are supplied by reputable international pharmaceutical companies in well designed packaging with detailed instructions and cautionary information.
Tell me how this cannot be a better way to control their misuse or inappropriate administration as opposed to secretly swapping your dollar bills for a handful of tablets wrapped in a clear unlabeled plastic bag at the back of your local gym?
Buy safe steroids from reputable online stores who have access to these controlled sources of supply is one way around this dilemma. But which ones are reputable and which ones are not? You have to rely on word of mouth recommendations or take a chance. Established companies have been supplying their loyal bank of discerning users for years without complaint. And steroid users are generally a very well informed closely knit community who do not suffer fools or fraudsters lightly.
So surely there must be a better way? There is. Legalize steroids and control their use through the front door and stop the need to sneak them in through the dimly lit back door.
