Being legal or not doesnt ‘allow’ users to use as they wish, people use drugs of all kinds because they want to - not because the law condones or prohibits it. This is true from H to AAS.
The only difference is the sentence you get when caught.
Steroids are legal in the UK for the most part. People use as they wish, and those who do or have used - take myself, Bushy, Renton, Testanabol and many posters here - use(d) with the same intellect, care of lifestyle and goals as any other user or trainee.
Suggesting that legalizing AAS for retail sale is stupid, and obviously never going to happen as is the sale of cannabis cigarettes behind the counter - not when it isnt even Legal to smoke tobacco in public places or in many States drink Alcohol in open places.
I do however understand your frustration WC, in your governments sudden focus on AAS users since the Barry bonds-gate ‘scandal’. ‘Scandal’ is in abbreviations as it wasn’t a scandal to those who used ASS already, as we knew many sportsmen used them… and know that many more continue to!
I lived in the States when the Bondsgate scandal hit, and i remember the hype on Foxnews and other right-wing BS news sources.
Trouble is the liberals are of the same opinion…
FWIW cannabis was reduced from a class C substance to a controlled drug, like Benzo’s and AAS. It is legal to have it with a prescription and if caught with it without, in most cases it is confiscated and destroyed - unless intent to supply is suspected.
This confused the young chav’s here who thought this meant it was legal and they could all stroll around smoking blunts, just as they believe you can smoke a blunt in front of a cop anywhere in Amsterdam!
Until they got there gear taken and a fine, of course.
It is all ignorance - and with all drugs there are a proportion of users who are ignorant… including alcohol.
In fact as soon as human interaction is applied - ignorance soon follows.
