    I saw them mention this on sportscenter yesterday about how arnold vetoed this bill. Anyone have any info on it or have links to some info on it? I googled it but I couldn't really get any specifics on it. All I know is it was calling for a ban on steroids(duh), testing(not sure how they're going to pay for all of that), and banning use of "other performance supplements". I'm mainly curious about what the other supplements consist of?

    I don't see how they could even get it that far with the testing part. Considering all the minors that would have to be subject to it. If something like this were to pass, imagine the the calls for future bans on stuff like creatine and the like.

    If that happened the levels of government control in the U.S. would be getting scary. I hate it when the government puts restrictions on things to prevent idiots from hurting themselves. Unfortunately in Canada, I have to pay for the health care through my taxes when people inject shit in their bodies that they know nothing about!

    Just another case of the government doing the parents job for them. I think it would be a waste of a ton of money to be testing people and an invasion of privacy. I think what you do outside of school or work is your own business, its your life and nobody should be able to control it.

    really I am almost (although not versed on this bill) sure the bill has a hundred riders which were not reasonable or it was a rider to a bigger bill that was not passable.

    I did find a few articles that said the testing would cost up to $125 a person. The senator or whatever behind it said that the people being tested would not have to come up with the money. At 125 a pop for every student athlete, that is alot of fucking money.

    It was like part 4/5 of their report on steroids in sports or whatever. It focused on the HS level of it. Of course mentioning that idiot middle schooler who was using roids. I love how people take one isolated incident and run with it.

    its not going to pass, first theyd have to raise taxes and that would ruin his chance for re election, and i believe that arnold is pro steriod, he will veto it.

    Having just graduated from HS last year, in a way I wish this bill would pass. The amount of HS kids using steroids has become out of control. I was a high school football player and having not used steroids I really struggled to play at the level of some of the other teams. Some players on my team as well used them and there were HUGE gains and an unfair improvement.

    Simply, I don't know how they would pay for it etc. but there are certain players you know are on Steroids and its really an unfair advantage in High School sports. It takes away from those players which love the game and don't want to take illegal drugs to win. Just my $.02

    nah, it was one of my friends who sold the steroids to the people and I saw many of the kids on the football team use them. I was actually our biggest Defensive Back, not the best, but the biggest. It has gotten pretty bad in certain areas especially in competitive areas such as southern california where everyone wants to make the next big break playing against Mark Sanchez at mission or whatever hoping that a scout will spot them. I don't know how it is elsewhere in the US or even in northern california but southern california has become sort of a trouble spot in some areas.

    You struggled because you chose not to go through what they went through to get where they were. If you want to be the best you have to do whatever it takes to get there. Arnold spoke of this numerous times. How is it an unfair improvement? If you knew the guy you had access to them. Life isn't fair and you once again have to do whatever it takes to succeed. Do you not think these players love it enough that they are going to induce even more stress on their bodies with aas?
