  • Same as birth control...

    Using birth control, is adding hormones to ones body for a desired effect. There is no difference with steroids. Only that congress backs birth contol vs steroids. Congress got involved with our national sports atheletes, whom choose to dedicate their lives to physical performance, under the guise of "how they influence the children". Yet they dont get involved with the media to ensure the same level of integrity, as the media influences hundreds of millions of individuals both young and old. Of course the media serves the interests of the politicians, so they will never demand to keep the public well informed, but let an athlete take a "performance enhancement" and they are all over it. It causes me to wonder what else was going on at that time for which they needed to distract the american public. Wag the Dog....

  • Steroids should be legal

    First, every legitimate study performed using steroids points to the fact that "good rage" is a myth. There are more instances everyday of alcohol induced rage than have been in the entire 70years of nonsensically supervised steroid use. When monitored by a physician side effects of steroids can be minimized. Male pattern baldness, gyno, and acne are all touted side effects but only occur in the genetically predisposed. If your going to bald anyway it just happens faster on steroids due to increased dht. 95% of the people who use steroids are using them for cosmetic personal enhancement. Botox and plastic surgery is legal and significantly more dangerous, but is a short cut to someone's goals. It is not cheating if you are not competing against others. If you are competing, it becomes that organizations responsibility to ban and test for these substances. Corruption in professional sports is not a legal means to make a substance a controlled substance. Also the DEA, FDA, AMA, and every other medical or drug related governing body reported to Congress that steroids did not have the physiological or psychological requirements to become a controlled substance. Congress threw out all these testimonies because it did not meet their agenda. Education and preventative measure can be used to minimize teen usage. Just like alcohol and tobacco they may get there hands on it but in very rare instances will it be harmful. Lastly, the reported teenager who killed himself after going "cold turkey" from steroids that was reported to Congress already had a diagnosed psychological disorder.

  • Yes, if you care about people and want to stop crime.

    Stop with your stupid, emotional, irrational arguments and let's talk about reality. Making anything illegal creates crime, we saw this during prohibition and we see it now. People do die over steroids, not users but those who transport and sale the product. Making an argument that steroids are bad for you is dumb dumb debate. More prescription drugs kill people a year than heroin and crack combined, wrap that around your argument. Also, we are one of the few countries in the world that make anabolics illegal, which was done not for anyone's safety but because congress wanted to tell their constituents that they made 'Merica safer. Wow, we are so lucky they did, boy do I feel safer now.

  • My body, my choice.

    Sport organizations can still test and ban players whether or not it is legal. The government was never meant to be a nanny state. Literally I can get ten years in prison for simply risking damage to my own body. That is insane.

    The way the government thinks about us as children they must micromanage is crazy. And even victimless crimes are being punished by higher and higher prison sentences. It is about power.

  • Weed, Alcohol, etc can be so much more dangerous

    There are very few if any deaths directly associated with steroid use. (yeah people abuse them, but even then death is hard to come by) Meanwhile people die of alcohol poisoning all the time. So Ironic to me that this country loves supporting alcohol which reduces testosterone, and them makes sure any testosterone itself is illegal. You'd think this county has something against men.

  • Why should steroids legal.

    I think goverment should legalize steroids, because it will safe to buy, we'll know how much to take, and goverment can make money out of it. It will less death. Every body wants to get big. In California goverment legal the weed, they free injection, people who do heroines, why the can't legal steroids, that way we know how much to take, when to take. You can't get big without steroids, only tree grow naturally, doest matter how much you
    Eat, workout, you need steroids to get big, and people gonna do it. It's time for goverment to make steroids legal.

  • Should be legal of course Alcohol and Tobacco are and kill people. Only around three people die per year from roid abuse.

    We have drugs like alcohol which results in many deaths and abuse and then we have weed becoming legal when all it does is encourage you to sit on your butt and do nothing while Steroids allows you to get motivated to workout and get strong and it does not put your mind in any type of high or any state of mind that you're not normally in unlike coffee aspirin and other pills. If a 8 year old kid took 25 aspirin they would die quickly and that drug is legal. I even think that we need to make Steroids legal for all firefighters and law enforcement officers as that would give them the extra needed strength for them to do their jobs. Noone wants a fat out of breath firefighter or cop when you can have a muscular and in shape officer or firefighter to save you in time of crisis.

  • Steroids should not be legal.

    It gives the people who use it more advantages and can get more known than the people that choose not to use it. It can also damaged your body and result in death. Steriods are simply something bad that you should not take and something that should never be legalized.

  • Absolutely not

    No, steroids should not be legal. Everyone is well aware that steroids are used by many athletes and professional wrestlers, among others. That would not be bad in itself, but teenagers are using steroids now and they are either oblivious to the side effects or have chosen to disregard them. Long term use of steroids can affect organs, cause infertility, and also cause violent mood swings and uncontrollable rages. Any drug that causes a person to fly into a rage and be unable to control themselves has no business being legal.

  • Too Much Happens to Body

    Steroids are great medications to take for people rehabbing from accidents. Corticosteroids are used to open up the lungs of asthma patients. However, steroids should not be legal in general due to their side effects. Muscle mass may be gained, but maladies such as infertility and bone mass may lead to health problems later. The heart muscle is also under much more stress when steroids are used.

  • Drugs are bad

    The usage of steroids should not be legal. They shouldn't be legal because people are enhancing there muscles the wrong way. A true athlete would do everything the normal natural way and would not take the short cut. I say if you are an athlete and take steroids, you don't even have the right to call yourself an athlete.

  • Dont do drugs

    Steroids should not be used. They wreck lives. Lance Armstrong was seen as a winner, idolized by many he won seven Tour de France titles. Little did they know that their so loved idol was using steroids to win races. So they stripped him of his titles and banned him from the sport for life because of steroids. He helplessly watched as all he had been working for come down to nothing.
    1) People who are athletes and use steroids have an unfair advantage against others who don’t use steroids when they are competing in a sport.
    2) Those people who do use steroids also are damaging their health and encouraging youth to do a steroid which sets a bad example.
    3) The world we live in encourages us to stay away from drugs. Legalizing steroids would impact other athletes who don’t do drugs to start using them. It would also encourage other drugs to be legalized. Our world would go crazy and so would the people.

  • NO.

    Steroids take out the compteition of the game. When players use steroids it not only harms their body but it gives them an advantage over the rest of the competitors. If it were legal there is no telling what kind of effects it could bring around to the players in leagues. It's dangerous to the body and the mind and could even end a career.

  • Steroids should be legal.

    Steroids have many benefits. If they are used properly in a medicinal use they help many people get through serious illnesses. As far as sports are concerned, it should be completely up to the governing body of each sport. They are proven to be hazards to your health if not used properly so this is a serious health risk and good reason to ban them unless used for medicine.

  • Should not be legal

    Steroids give advantages to people who take them, allowing them to be better than people in a sport performing without steroids or other relative drugs. Steroids have even more bad side effects to good side effects. Long term intake of steroids can cause people to have violent mood swings and uncontrollable rages, this cannot be safe for society. Using steroids in a sport creates advantages allowing an athlete to win or even hold titles, if people find out that an athlete’s is using steroids then they immediately strip them off from the title and will have a bad reputation towards the rest of society. The people who do use steroids are also harming their health and encouraging youth to do steroids which sets a bad example.
