Steroids should not be considered as an illegal substance. This is because it doesn’t provide the type of euphoria that other drugs do. In fact, steroids users are reportedly more diligent than none users. The reason that governments want to stop anabolic distribution is that of competition. They fear that it will affect the underline of large pharmaceutical companies. These large pharmaceutical companies monopolize the anabolic steroid market. They do not want new players coming in to compete with them. Moreover, they hike the price of the substances. This then forces users that depend on steroids for their well-being to pay top prices. This type of exploitation by global pharmaceutical firms has a negative social impact. Users that depend on anabolic steroids can no longer access the needed drugs.
