Should steroids be legal for regular people?

I was just thinking how I'll never be a professional athlete, but I'm not allowed to purchase or use steroids without a prescription. In order to get a prescription, I'd have to be suffering from delayed puberty, anemia, or some other ailment. The entire reason steroids are so taboo, it seems is because athletes use them to gain an unfair (debatable) advantage over their competition. That standard doesn't apply to me at the gym as I'm not in competition with any other people, nor am I in any bodybuilding shows.

What do you think?

inb4 hur dur moobs and balding
>inb4 OP can't inb4

It's more than just moobs and balding, steroids completely **** up the body's ability to function; your heart and lungs get messed up badly after using for a while.

Right, but how is that different than getting lung cancer, cirrhosis of the liver, kidney stones, gall stones, diabetes, etc. from completely legal means? There are risks with everything that goes into the body.

OP pretty much got it spot on. They should be available to regular assholes if they choose to take them.

Are you really that desperate to "look sewper buff and hawt" to put your body through that? There are words for those kinds of people. They're called attention ***** douche bags.

But what do I care what other people want to do? If it makes them happy, why not? It's not hurting anyone but themselves, so I say legalize it. They can probably tax the shit out of it too.

I don't see why not. They should obviously be regulated, and only dispensed with a prescription.

I'm faily sure the reason they're so taboo is because they're dangerous and addictive.

It's not only about looking ripped. That can be achieved with a proper diet and regular exercise.

Steroids take it up that extra level. Where as having to wait 2 to 3 days in between workouts for your body to recover, even with supplements, can be cut down to 1 day with steroids. The recovery is better; the endurance is better; the strength is better.

How are they addictive?

And if they're dangerous, it's because of abuse. Body builders, professional wrestlers, athletes, all the ones you hear about when people tell you about 'em are the ones who took hundreds of times the natural amount your body can produce and over a period of ten to fifteen years. Drinking and smoking excessively and over that period of time would **** your organs up just the same.

Well steroids are mainly used by jock types, and the Pit is still scarred by middle school dodgeball, so it makes sense.


But yea, it's pretty funny.
