So I have to write a policy paper for a class I'm taking this summer and I decided to write about steroid legalization. I was wondering if any of the experts on here, or anyone for that matter, know of any really good articles from peer reviewed journals that are good reads on the topic of steroids. I've looked at a bunch by Dr. Yesalis, and some other good ones but i need more. I'm obviously writing for steroid legalization, so pro-steroid articles would be good. thanks.

Well, if you want some more science type ones, search for these on PubMed

1) Single and Combined Effects of Growth Hormone and
Testosterone Administration on Measures of Body
Composition, Physical Performance, Mood, Sexual
Function, Bone Turnover, and Muscle Gene Expression
in Healthy Older Men (2002)

2)THE EFFECTS OF SUPRAPHYSIOLOGIC DOSES OF TESTOSTERONE
ON MUSCLE SIZE AND STRENGTH IN NORMAL MEN (July 4, 1996)

Just to give you a point in the right direction.

Before you write this paper, I suggest you do a little investigative work on the beliefs of your professor. As paper marking is so subjective, and anabolics are a relatively sensitive subject, you would be well advised to proceed with caution in case your professor is an anti-steroid conservative nutbag.
