Jason at It Is About the Money Stupid has been all over a recent online article that links Don Hooten, whose son Taylor committed suicide after using the PED Lexapro, to a steroid promoting and sales organization. The discussion is frank and has been updated significantly since it first posted yesterday morning. Jason's in an interesting position, as he has put himself in the middle of two apparently sparring parties, and using his site as a clearing house for their explanations and arguments. The conversation should lead readers to question how best to fight steroid use among teens as it examines the techniques steroid pushers use to sell their product and sabotage anti-steroid efforts, and the importance for non-profits to exercise due diligence in deciding who to associate themselves with. It's an important discussion, and one The Common Man is glad Jason's led us to.
