“The reality is, especially with this whole steroid epidemic, one thing we have to realize is the use of steroids is less than 100 years old,” Rogan said. “There’s always been something people have taken, but the actual use of anabolic steroids in human beings is relatively recent in human history. As time goes on, they’re going to create more powerful, crazy sh-t, and it’s going to get to the point where you’re going to test negative because it’s not in your system anymore, but your body will forever change.”
“So if he’s 39 years old and he broke his f***ing leg, you’re talking about a long-a** period of recovery. Or you take steroids and you recover in nine months instead of 15 months or fill in the blank. That could be what’s going on, but the reality is it’s illegal. You can’t do it. If it takes you 15 months, the excuse can’t be, ‘I’m going to give you some illegal drugs so you heal quicker. This is the only reason you take these drugs. Don’t worry about it, you’ll be fine.’ No, you’re never allowed to take steroids.”
Here are some interesting comments from a few forums:
"I used to smoke a little right before baseball and I was the best center fielder on the team, and now that I'm in college I compete in flag football and I'm much more focused and fluid in my movements."
"In high school i ran cross country and did track (400m and 800m). i went to track and cross country state when i was a sophomore and a junior. i would smoke before and after races and practice so that i could run better. weed effects different people in different ways for me it makes me feel super active and crazy for the first hour that im stoned plus i don't feel much pain so i can push myself harder then i would normally be able to."
"Don't understand a lot of the scientific talk on here but I feel very strongly from 10 years of experience of smoking the stuff in question that there is NO WAY you could call it performance enhancing!"
As someone who doesn't use marijuana, I simply don't know the answer to what is arguably a very interesting debate.
