    Unless you play for the San Diego Padres o_O:oops:

    [​IMG]

    San Diego Padres outfielder Cameron Maybin has been suspended 25 games after testing positive for amphetamines, Major League Baseball announced Wednesday. The suspension is effective immediately.

    "I have been undergoing treatment for several years for a medical condition, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), for which I previously had a Therapeutic Use Exemption [TUE],'' the statement read. "Unfortunately, in my attempts to switch back to a medicine that had been previously OK'd, I neglected to follow all the rules and as a result I tested positive.:rolleyes:

    80% of the products sold at GNC contain ingredients that are on the banned substance list. Its overkill IMO.

    "Based on the collectively bargained drug policy between MLB and the union for the players, a first-time positive test for amphetamines simply results in increased follow-up testing and no public announcement. Based upon today’s announcement, Maybin has actually tested positive twice, thus resulting in the 25 game suspension for stimulants. If he were to test positive again for simulants it would result in an 80 game suspension. A fourth violation can result in permanent suspension from Major League and Minor League Baseball, although the case would immediately be subject to review by an arbitration panel."



    "Amphetamine is used by some athletes for its psychological and performance-enhancing effects, such as increased stamina and alertness, but this is prohibited at events regulated by the World Anti-Doping Agency. In healthy people at oral therapeutic doses, amphetamine has been shown to increase physical strength, acceleration, stamina, endurance,and alertness, while reducing reaction time.Like the psychostimulants methylphenidate andbupropion, amphetamine increases stamina and endurance in humans primarily through reuptake inhibition and effluxion of dopamine in the central nervous system."
