    So far I've managed to miss this steroid controversy involving a few of our celebrities only because I didn't see the big deal. But since my readers are so wrapped up in this story I figured I would give my take on it.

    First and foremost, steroid use is not illegal in this country.

    Anabolic steroids are controlled substances and must be prescribed by a licensed doctor. In all of these cases involving Mary J Blige, 50 Cent, Tyler Perry, Timberland and others, a licensed doctor prescribed the drugs. In their defense, a doctor is under investigation for steroid trafficking. But that doesn't make the celebrities criminals.

    The only people on that list that I find remotely suspect are Timberland and 50 Cent. But even they aren't world class athletes whose use of steroids would give them an unfair advantage over their competitors. So what's the real story here?

    Many patients are prescribed steroids for various medical problems. So I fail to see why the media is making such a big deal out of this story involving urban artists when there are many other celebrities out there abusing drugs far worse than steroids.

    We have to be mindful of the fact that the national media is not our friends. And now that they are competing with the tabloids and bloggers for "news" - anything goes. Our celebrities are easy targets.

    Believe some of what you read and most of what you see.
