If you have Low T, you take the risk of never going over the allowed Test limits for you will be banned if so. This way is the only deterent I see that will actually cut down on the widespread and apparent abuse. Otherwise, people will continue to cheat. Or just make everything okay to use already...sick of people taking this crap.
IMO you can't do this. What is legal today is illegal tomorrow. Everyone is taking something whether it be legal or illegal. Everyone is using power / taking pills / using drugs after surgery.
I can see you point when you are talking about stuff that is pretty cut and dry like sticking a needle in your arm but it isn't always like that.
