Maybe Steroids should be legal?

Well, I mean Anabolic Steroids.

You know, the kind that Barry Bonds took?

The movie Bigger, Stronger, Faster is a fantastic exploration of the American mentality and makes you ask yourself that question.

Not only does it star personal favorites of mine like Ben Johnson (of 9.79 fame), Henry Waxman, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Hulk Hogan, but it’s a compelling story of regular people faced with choices.

And, in some ways, it’s a story about marketing. The marketing of steroids as inherently bad.

It’s one of those movies where, after you watch it, you walk away with some of your conventional assumptions destroyed, forced to confront a different reality.
