Re: The Cocaine Era
You can't compare snorting cocaine to using PEDs. I snorted coke during college, but not heavily and on rare occasions. It was very common during that period. I did so for a couple years, until Lenny Bias died of a cocaine overdose in 1986. I loved him and never did drugs again after his passing. But my point is, while I was a gifted baseball, football and basketball player on the high school level, there's no way cocaine could have in any way improved my performance on the field, court, etc. Steroids and PEDs, on the other hand, obviously do.
