    This is correct. Its classified as a broader form of BDD although the definition and criteria were updated in the DSM-V. Prior to that it was classified as BDD subtype, with OCD tendency. I wrote a paper for psycho-pathology years ago when I was studying Uottawa.
    Most of the data was compiled by Pope,et al.

    In Canada the drug is still sched 3, so there are no ramifications owning. I don't see a high criminal ring or a higher rate of suicidal youth using steroids in Canada. I agree that there should be some type of control but I wonder how much sensationalism went into the anti steroid use propaganda of the 80's.

The aggrieved parents of high school athletes who had killed themselves after being pulled off steroids suddenly (a recipe for disaster) literally told legislators they would be personally responsible for their sons' deaths if they didn't act on this issue. But I am convinced it was the photo-op nature of the national publicity this issue stirred up that motivated the legislators the most. They wanted to beat their chests like King Kong & say "we saved your kids so reelect us."
