15. 'Zactly.
IMO, the only reason steroids aren't allowed, so to speak, in sports is due to their illegality. So, if a player gets a script for test and GH from a wellness clinic, is it then okay like it would be for any other American?

What if something like Superdrol works for you. It's legal, but it can register a false positive. What then?

Then the question that needs to be asked is it cheating because it's illegal, or is it cheating because it's enhancement? I currently take creatine methyl ester malate, di-creatine malate and a nitric oxide supplement when I hit the gym. Am I cheating? Would an NFL player be cheating?

I don't think that this will ever be solved.
