Anabolic Steroid and Human Growth Hormone Abuse: Creating an Effective and Equitable Ergogenic Drug Policy

Anabolic Steriod and Human Growth Hormone Abuse : Creating an Effective and Equitable Ergogenic Drug Policy / George Fan. - University of Chicago Legal Forum (1994) 1, article 19; p. 439-470)

The goal of this Comment is threefold. First, it shows that
HGH and steroids are so similar in terms of their limited clinical uses, the number and demographics of abusers, and the side
effects associated with abuse that any difference in penalties is
unjustified. Second, the Comment compares the side effects and
medical uses of HGH with other drugs in Schedule III of the CSA
and concludes that HGH should be classified as a Schedule III
drug. Finally, this Comment explores alternative avenues of
deterrence, including education and social sanctions.
