Body building businesses seem to unfortunately often be involved in drugs and have really bad names with numbers instead of words. Fitness 4 Life, Got 2 B Drug-Free!

Not just body building is full of drugs. 3 local pro baseball players (2 San Francisco Giants and 1 Oakland A) were recently busted for performance enhancing drug use. Penalties are so light that one of them is already playing again.

Wasn't this guy arrested for this a few months back? It's pretty sad that a business that is suppose to be about good health and wellness is wrapped up in a mess like this. I feel bad for the guy's mother...sad sad situation.

The underlying tragedy here is that he needed money for his mother's medical care.
Why is it that medical care in the US so often leads to poverty and bankruptcy? We are a sick society in so many non physical ways.

Why is is that criminals feel entitled to commit their crimes based on their family needs? It's because they lack a moral compass. "Don't do the crime if you can't do the time." He took a risk & lost. Game over. How does any of this help his mom?
