hi, I’ve just started this TSW a couple of days ago and my face is really sore and flaky. its a lot like your pictures so you can understand what im talking about. iive on been diagnosed with eczema like 11 months ago and i’ve been on steroids for about 9 months for my face and they only temporarily hide the issue. I’ve felt like this is actually pointless ( the TSW) but seeing your pictures and telling your story has motivated me to carry on. so I just want to say thank you for letting me know what to expect and reminding me to stay strong, cuz believe me this s*** aint easy! 🙂
Laws and Penalties: Concerns over growing illegal AAS abuse by teenagers, and many of the just discussed long-term effects, led Congress in 1991 to place the whole AAS class of drugs into Schedule III of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). Under this legislation, AAS are defined as any drug or hormonal substance, chemically and pharmacologically related to T (other than estrogens, progestins, and corticosteroids) that promotes muscle growth. The possession or sale of AAS without a valid prescription is illegal. Since 1991, simple possession of illegally obtained AAS carry a maximum penalty of one year in prison and a minimum $1,000 fine if this is an individual’s first drug offense. The maximum penalty for trafficking (selling or possessing enough to be suspected of selling) is five years in prison and a fine of $250,000 if this is the individual’s first felony drug offense. If this is the second felony drug offense, the maximum period of imprisonment and the maximum fine both double. While the above listed penalties are for federal offenses, individual states have also implemented fines and penalties for illegal use of AAS. State executive offices have also recognized the seriousness of AAS abuse and other drugs of abuse in schools. For example, the State of Virginia enacted a law that will allow student drug testing as a legitimate school drug prevention program (48, 49).
