About 4 years ago, I posted here that the fight against performance enhancing drugs was not only unwinnable but nonsensical. I was roundly criticised for this position.
I still feel the same way. If I can ingest all sorts of drugs to make other parts of my body work better, from my heart to my Johnson Bar , why not my legs and muscles ? Sure these currently-illegal "performance enhancing" drugs can be abused but so can ALL drugs, as well as alcohol, cigarettes, etc. etc.
If we non-illegalize them, maybe then they can be ingested in a more open and safe manner.
As I also posted back then, how about weight lifting ? We make our muscles stronger by ripping and tearing them, then they quickly re-knot stronger. Someone in 1890 might have scientifically revealed all this and maybe weight lifting should have been outlawed too ?!
