In the UK it is legal to import and use steroids providing you bring them in yourself and only take them yourself.

I think the current situation is a farce. We hear about many alleged cover ups by governing bodies across all sports who turn a blind eye to athletes caught using.

Sport has never been "clean". We are sold bullshit about Corinthian ideals but from the earliest times sportspeople have looked for an edge and used whatever was thought capable of giving them improved performance.
