Has anyone here "doped?" Thought about it? What's your experience?
I think it's not illegal to consume (swallow, inhale, inject) substances for personal benefit, unless those substances are specifically prohibited. So if you've got growth hormone, or steroids, or yak urine or whatever, you are permitted to consume or use it if you feel it will boost your performance, make you feel better, prolong your life, attract female yaks, etc.
Many substances are regulated, which means it's not legal to import some of these supplements without a license, or to dispense them to others without prior approval. Other aspects of law apply, but my impression is that the main restrictions on "doping" are the rules regarding competition, not so much criminal laws.
You can dope and "it's a free country." But you can't compete while using it, depending upon the rules for your competition. If you do and are caught, you should of course be bounced unceremoniously out of the event, and potentially charged with fraud.
But outside of competition, is it moral, a good idea or not...?
