BigGuy and PSJoey have the right idea.
When I started lifting, in 1975, everything was over the counter without the misinformation campaign of today. Only since 1991, has juice been control, against the advice of the DEA, DHS, AMA, ALA, FDA, NEJM, ACS, Army and a long list of other authorities (they all recommended it be prescription, or over the counter, but, NOT controlled). (All this information is highly available if you do some research...Google.)
As you grow older, hormones drop (DHEA, GH, Estrogen, and Testosterone, among others), and your performance, muscle mass, body fat, and mood, all start to decline. HRT (Human Replacement Therapy) nips that in the bud, helping you think faster, preventing Alzheimer's, protecting your heart, protecting your overall health, lowering your fat levels, and increasing overall mood. HRT is BEING used very successfully in middle age and geriatric populations. Lots of good science has been done that show s the many benefits of androgen, and GH, therapy in middle age, and beyond.
Here's some interesting facts: about 3000 people die every year from all illicit drug use COMBINED; about 800,000 die from alcohol; about 1.6 million die from tobacco; about 6.5 MILLION die from being to fat. If we're truely interested in saving lives, we should outlaw fat people. (I doubt we see that any day soon).
All that said, we have the ripped metrosexual male in our everyday images, and the beautiful girl with the fake tits, etc. There's definitely pressure. And, anyone that thinks sports medicine is an ingrained part of collegiate, pro, and high school sports is living with blinders on. It's EVERYWHERE. We want guys who are big, can hit it out of the park, lean,dry, and built. Society pays big for those looks, and that level of performance. Ironic, that a teacher nearly starves, and a functionally illiterate person can make millions in the NBA. A sad statement on society.
Anyway, here's the gotcha: No amount of juice will make a champion. It takes of years of training, smarts, genes, dedication, coaching, in whatever sport.
In my case, I weighed 175 at 12% and had the fifth highest strength index in my high school at 16. That's genes and hard work, and no fat, out of shape person can blame that on juice.
From my point of view, it shouldn't be the government's role to control want I put in my behind, be it a syringe, a dick, or a cucumber.
Ironically, if it WAS about saving lives, we'd outlaw fat people, because they are BY FAR the most amount of lives lost, daily, needlessly, and running about health care costs. It's NOT about saving lives, though, in this country...it's about treatment of illness, power, and control.
