Interesting article.

https://www.t-nation.com/opinion/should-steroids-be-legal?utm_source=4chan&utm_medium=topkeks

What I took away from it:
1) Steroids are actually not as dangerous as you think, and safer in prolonged large doses than things like Vitamin C and Tylenol. They are also safer than prohormones.
2) Steroids became illegal in the USA not because of medical opinion but out of political shilling by Biden.

Why did they criminalize testosterone? Why is it possible for doctors to administer hormones to turn a young boy into a girl, but not if you want to become a yoked bodybuilder?
>>
Powers that be clearly want the western world to be feminine and weak. The entire developed world has been poisoned with massive levels of artificial estrogen like compounds yet you have to jump through hoops to even get low doses of test.

>>35943763
It doesn't give specifically wrong information, the problem hat it selects the information it provides very carefully so that roids seem to have no downsides (mainly by making really stupid comparisons). The whole political bullshit is not even worth reading, as it doesn't matter.

Steroids are not illegal, they just require a prescription, like they should. If it were completely (as in over-the-counter) legal, people will eventually destroy their bodies with it and you and I have to pay for it, 100%.

It's weird to me anyway, why people think they can expect to change their body chemistry in abnormal ways to overcome their dysmorphia. They should probably investigate the problems that even makes them think it's somebody they definitely need instead of spending their time writing shitty articles like that.

Seriously, everyone:

Think of all the shit diet pills that Dr. Oz sells by the billions to sad house wives. And everyone knows on some level that stuff is bunk, but it sells anyway.

Now imagine known effective steroids are being sold by Dr. Oz and every fatty thinks "Oh, as long as I just slam test I can eat whatever I want and I'm still gonna get ripped".

Sorry, but it makes total sense for steroids to be illegal.

They haven't been illegal that long. And there was never any epidemic. Body building got crazy since they became illegal, and even cops use shitloads of test still.

Now you imagine if you could talk to a doctor about your steroid use.

All drugs should be legal. In a truly free country, what one does in their spare time should be no concern of the government or anybody else for that matter. Prohibition causes way more problems than it solves.

Fact: You can use steroids and be reasonable safe if you know what you're doing and only use small to moderate amounts and kinds, and use them for the right reasons.

Fact: The majority of people who use steroids are fucking lowlife inbred retards who have no fucking clue whatsoever what they're doing, and don't care either, and do it for all the wrong reasons.

The problem with this whole debate is the same problem there is when debating the legality of marihuana: It could be legal, but all the guys who want it to be, want it for the wrong reasons and are idiots.

Also, on a side note, I think we should stop just saying "steroids". Steroids aren't just steroids. Aspirin and morphine are both drugs that help with pain, yet one is harmless unless you're very stupid or very unlucky, while the other can outright kill you if you don't know exactly what you're doing. Same thing with steroids.

Marijuana is illegal because governments don't want their workforces to be lazy stoners, they don't want productivity to decrease which affects the economy.

No. But those are a minority. Most of the people who want to legalize it are just stoners. Anyway let's stay on the topic of steroids.

It's sexism at the core, plain and simple.

Well think about the stereotypical "alpha male". They are ambitions and don't like being fucked by someone for their own gain. I'm not even talking fight club crazies, just manly people in general. They are harder to control because they want to be on top, versus normal hipster cucks who are fine working at starbucks until they are 40.

The people in power (>inb4 jews) don't even want the population to be a well oiled machine anymore like they did in the 1900s. The way the economy and politics work right now means that everything is just on autopilot and they want the people to do literally nothing.

Man, who's they? Who enacted what measures? And why then does every policy put through these days (such as the fight against 15 an hour) seem to be forcing people to work harder instead of a Bread and Circuses type set up?

Look inside yourself, you know what you say to come from your feelings not the facts.

The fact is that the modern age makes passive everyone, male or female. There's no conspiracy, just greater convenience leads to greater laziness.
>>
>>35943693

'Legal' steroids isn't a realistic proposition.

1. We live in a world of The Pharmacutical Industrial Complex. Steroids are extremely cheap to produce (particularly testosterone, which is comes from vegetable sources) does not have enough profit margin for the drug companies to make readily available. For example - even purchased on the black market - a ten week 250mg test cycle with clomid for PCT and pins costs less than $100. Additionally most steroids are out of patent.

2. Ruling elites have no interest in masculinising the male populace. Whereas smashing girls' hormones with the pill (estradiol) from the age of 13 leading to (1) female health issues (google - the use of the pill is worse on a woman long term than blasting and cruising throughout a man's life) and (2) a declining birthrate in the West is in their interest.

3. The population aren't educated enough on sex steroid use to agree to it. For instance, criticising sportsmen as cheats without being aware that gear is necessary to achieve anything in sports and every top and most average sportsmen are on the gear. (Google 'Paula Radclife' and roids. Anyone who knows their shit knows she's on.)

Implementing the Western European model - i.e. legal to buy for personal use, but illegal to deal - would be a better question to ask. However, this exists because WE healthcare is nationalised. In the US the above mentioned Pharmacutical Industrial Complex would never let this happen.
>>
>>35943753
>They also criminalized prostitution (while promoting porn and sexuality in the media)

Prostitution is criminalized because it is a profession of small businesswomen that largely exists tax free.

It's why you get so much shit demonizing john's and working girls in the media ('human trafficking' particularly, 'dangerous' and 'misogynist') because they want to bring a big earning industry under their control. Even though the reality is most working girls aren't in danger and would hate for it to become legal as they would lose 50%+ of earnings through tax overnight. 'Legalizing' prostitution only benefits the taxman.

By contrast, promotion of porn and sexual deviancy in the media benefits elites because it keeps people wanking themselves silly and not establishing societal bonds and structures (relationships, family and children) and fucks them up mentally beyond repair.
>>
>>35944656
>ruling elites
I love this idea that world leaders of vastly different cultures and ideals have all gotten together and, not only have acted in cooperation for decades or centuries (when have people in power ever willingly shared it over generations?) said "You know what?

Oh, and make sure that no one but some autists on an anime image board ever catch on.
>>
>>35943768

'Divide and conquer'

There's no war. It's just that women, at this stage, have been fucked up mentally worse than men because they are the weaker sex and are easier to manipulate. Read up on the history of suffrage and feminism and look between the lines. Men and the West were attacked through their women. Debase women – the creators of life and mothers of the next generation – and the rest falls into place.

Of course steroids should fucking be legal. The fact that women can get synthetic estrogens to improve their quality of life without issue while I'd do hard time for the same is fucking ridiculous.

>>35944338
You're way outside of the norm. Usually a man has to be below 300 on their blood tests (the levels of an old man), and most doctors will only prescribe enough to get the boy/man up to the lower end of normal, i.e. 500, when they should be about 800 at least.

Who cares? It's not the state's job to protect the citizens from willful ignorance. Personal responsibility would weed out a lot of the lowest dregs of society.

no, estrogen is generally safer and doesn't have many serious side effects, even if a complete idiot were to use them.
test on the other hand will land an idiot in the hospital quickly and drain a huge amount of public money because the same dickhead thought it would be a good idea to blast and cruise on 20g every day.
estrogen barely needs any instructions, while test and other anabolic steroids will fuck you up badly if you don't spend months researching them.

It's in the best interests of the State to protect it's citizens. Generally, States with better protection of it's citizens from themselves do better. Anarchist societies don't exist for a reason. There needs to be a balance between liberties and government control.

That's objectively wrong though. If you dropped an equivalent amount of synthetic estrogen as 20g test then you'd totally be in the hospital. The only reason estrogen seems "safer" is because it's legal and available in safe, supervised dosages. Your hypothetical scenario is a result of prohibition, and only hurts your own defense of it.

>>35945331

Danger's in the dose. Driving a car is extremely safer than doing heroin, for example. That's why countries have drug classes and penalties associated with different drugs.

>>35943723
God damnit, its true. There is a lot of evidence that estrogenic compounds are becoming more and more prevalent in the food/water supply. The research points to a lot of water supply and fish, such that specifically fish contain lots of these hormones because the hormones exist in the water they thrive in.

Its a sad reality, but i think its a true reality. Back when reagan was in office, the world was much more /fit/. Obesity was dealt with at a younger age, and the kids had gym class. They were essentially army ready, which is a shit ton better than "going to sit at work for 8 hours a day" ready.

Legit "Physical Fitness" is now a thing from the 90's. Physical fitness isn't a thing anymore in the latter part of the 2000's moving into now 2016. Sure, we're trying to be healthier, vegan, non GMO. But all of this promotion is all targeted at eating. None of it is targeted at physical fitness. Its a disgrace.

Red herring: A red herring is something that misleads or distracts from a relevant or important issue.

Pretty much exactly what you were doing with the ridiculous derivation of my point. The only potential harm from choosing to use a certain drug in a controlled fashion is to the user, just like with every dug. Nobody was arguing for DUIs to be legal.

It's nigh impossible to get JUST test from a doctor, and something like tren would never fucking happen.

No. Once they become legal, they would become a requirement for professional sports. Teams would literally be able to openly say, "You WILL take this substance, side effects be damned, or you're off the team."

-are under constant medical supervision
-dont OD
-are not retarded about it
-stop when it comes to problems

most people that roid only do the "are not retarded about it" part. and quite some dont make that.

really, the average person is absolutely retarded, and they are even more retarded when it comes to fitness. if roids are legalised, these persons will inflict long term damage on themselves, and society has to pay.

and, society does not want to pay for your ruined health because you wanted bigger biceps when you where in your mid 20s.

>its totally healthy
no it isn't. yes, side effects can be reduced by proper usage and counteracting them with meds, but they are never zero. the one thing that will happen (to those that are dumber more often then to those that are not, but it will happen if you do it long enough) is that your natural test levels crash. and they dont come back. so now society has to pay you test for the rest of your life. can you see why society does not want that?

not to mention gyno (quite a lot of people go to their gp when they get it to get threatment). or the more serious things (heart damage, kidney damage, liver damage, cancer.....) those are going to be expensive for society. why would they want to pay for the long term consequences of your big arms?

>but some guy in my gym uses them and is still alive
the damage is long term.

One of the aspects that should not be overlooked is the amount of crime people will commit because they are psychologically addicted or now need more steroids then ever to even compete in amateur sports.

>even cops use shitloads of test still.
and australian cops tend to smoke meth for recreational use rather then weed because meth is shorter in your urine. cops are not really any type of role model for health.

also cops have one of the few jobs where roids make sense, as they are 20x more likely to get into physical confrontations then they are to use their guns.

if I had to physically fight with criminals everyday, I would take test too.

I assume you support banning alcohol, cigarettes, driving, and all unhealthy food as well then? It only makes sense logically since the entirety of your opposition boils down to health care costs.

Yes. Its pretty bad.

lol
Most ig roid shilling fags would be pissed if it became legal.
The supplement industry would shit bricks.

More money to be made off of it that way.

>>35943849
The body naturally produces them. It's addictive like water.
>>
>>35947791
The simplest solution would be to tax the sale of steroids/weed/whatever to such an extent that the tax revenue raised covers whatever increase in healthcare costs arises from their legalisation.

For instance, in Australia tax revenue raised from the purchase of cigarettes pays for the health costs of smokers 17 times over and actually makes a net contribution to the national budget.

That way your personal freedoms are intact and you fulfill your obligation to society not to be a burden.
>>
>>35943890
Wait a second there. Test is legal in México? Awww yiiiiisss
>>
I think it should at least be regulated, because I don't want to increase my taxes because white trash retarded faggots fuck themselves up for real by totally abusing the steroids they know nothing about, and then need a lifetime of medical care that they can in no way afford.
>>
>>35943995
Yeah but what you don't understand is what happens when someone tripping on meth gets in a car or is startled
>>
>>35947791
>alcohol, cigarettes
yep
>driving
pretty sure driving is an econimical plus overall for society. accidents cost the healthcare, but otherwise, economy would collapse.

>unhealthy food
if you can tell me what this is.

I would count meat as an unhealthy food (carcinogen, causes weight gain even if controlled for calories, etc). on the other side people on thi board tell you that it is impossible to build any muscle without meat.

the definition of unhealthy food varies.

I would say that a society would profit if we cut out the ultrafats out of the health care system though.
>>
>>35947868
Lol you must be retarded if you think steroids and water are comparable because they're both naturally produced by the body.

Dopamine is also naturally produced by the body. So using drugs to induce dopamine release to supraphysiological levels must be as addictive as water right?
>>
>>35947892
you know that taking test sooner or later crashes test levels? that means your taxes better cover TRT for the rest of the persons life.

>hello, I would like to buy a testo cure 250mg for a month
>yeah ok that makes eleventhousand dollars 49 cents
>>
>>35948266
You know that smoking sooner or later causes cancer?

And did you know that treating cancer is several orders of magnitude more expensive to treat than TRT?

Yet, smokers not only cover the cost of treatment but contribute well beyond it. So if it's possible for smoking then it's definitely possible for test.

At least we agree on something.

>>35947892
I would fully support that option. Taxing to offset costs makes sense fiscally and morally, but prohibition is just restriction of liberties. Although taxing them to seventeen times the cost just seems punitive.

depends upon the steroid being used same with test suppression aka test shut down. liver problems come from oral use (methalated products) needle is still safer but there are to many pansy roiders who would fuck it up, also problems with liver can be worse or less depending up which steriod is being used DBOL is the safest steriod oraly liver wise but a ton of it converts to estrogen which has to be combated with estrogen blockers novladex, clomid, over the counter DIM(high fucking dose btw 1g or more) coming off the cycle with estrogen blockers both during and after cycle (same recovery time same usage 8week on 8week off) is a great way to prevent gyno and test suppression, NAC and milk thistle are for liver support but needs more research and should be stack for on and off cycle if taking orals. DBOL is on par with alchol use and im using it as an example due to that.
none the less low Test is worse for your health than high test... the problem is only the roiding sites know how to take it safely(most recommend the same dosage of all things listed) if we could find liver support, estrogen blocking and safe steriods to stack into one vitapak like pill for pharma to hand out with warining labels saying after a certain dosage your fucked, eat healthy fgt and drink tons of water queer then yes it would be safe, but i wouldnt make it a solo legal roids muh gains without the rest of the picture implemented.

>>35951088
The majority of users are pathetic imbeciles who need to alter their body's biochemistry in order to achieve what they consider is "greatness" because they can't stand out with any other merit other than willingness to pin. That's pretty established. Stereotypes exist for a reason. I know fucking juicer fags will argue that, but I discard the opinion of any dumbfuck who's just too lazy to train and uses substances to feel better about himself anyway. If you think about it, that extra test is the equivalent of putting implants in your arms to make 'em look bigger. It's exactly the same thing. You still gotta go through surgery and grit your teeth through some pain. But you get something that's not yours.
>should chemical compounds which can make men sterile be legal

doesnt make sense becuase you have to workout even harder and longer to achieve the body you wanted
take 1 andro for example legal btw
effective dossage 300-600mg
often sold at 150mg
so not working out and would elicit 5lbs of muscle growth in 8 weeks at 300mg
if you worked out you would get 8-10lbs of muscle growth
why waste 100$ on an effective dose to get 5lbs of muscle growth when you could be getting 10lbs
if you took 150mg you with working out you could see 4lbs of muscle growth which is great even if your workout sucks for those 8 weeks
its expensive as fuck to get a dosage high

enough to guarantee sterility and even then you can protect yourself from that

Are we talking about the same species? Homo sapiens? The ones who can't handle alcohol, who die in bizarre accidents related to alcohol, drive drunk, who are prevalently obese or out of shape and use marijuana while vehemently arguing againts its long term effects? You think if anabolics were sold where you bought your groceries people wouldn't misuse them? Surely you can't think that. And while I think that if you're stupid enough to be sterile without saving sperm while juicing you don't deserve offspring anyways, you can see why they shouldn't be legal. It's glaringly obvious.

And you can create a tremendous body without using anything. Developing yourself physically also builds you up mentally. It shows dedication and character. Not everyone who juices looks good, but that's because they're just that dumb. Anyone can be jacked on the juice. It levels the field. Dimishes my accomplishments, for example, when I'm compared against some homo who put half the time in to get the same results.

its why i suggested a system like this that way it reduces the effects like warining labels(not that effective btw) on cigarettes have helped reduce the use of tobacco in the west.
hmmm considering retardedness of average people we should reconsider this legality part in a way that basicly has you go to walgreens, fill out a slip of paper medicaly saying you know the risks and have talked to your doctor about it and then you get it, as a mean of deterrence for those who dont know what there getting into or only know roiding memes or some shit like that so atleast that way there aware 100% of what there going to do plus they can get the right mix of stuff to prevent side effects over the counter would be a mistake so ill give you that

Everyone knows that drinking too much gives you slow reactions and makes you drowsy and that you can overdose on drugs but they still die in droves. Don't think juicing would be any different. I wouldn't say they're exactly equivalent, but juicing yourself to a good looking body is in my mind similar to the flat chick that got implants. She's still the insecure girl beneath the silicone. She's been insecure for years and never grew up to the point where she realized she could just exercise and have a great body and it won't better. She'll just flaunt her implants and delude herself she's better for it.

... Then again, I'm one of those people who hate weaklings and think men who can't fight are pathetic, so there goes my credibility. I know better than to preach about "what makes a man" to internet strangers. Juice away. Just don't expect everyone to agree with you because it's the easier way.
