The number of people who inject IPEDs is not known. There is some data on the reported use of anabolic steroids from the Crime Survey for England and Wales . In 2012 and 2013, this survey estimated that 59,000 (range 37,000 to 82,000) people had taken AS in the last year. This will include people who use AS orally as well as those who inject them, so these figures cannot be extrapolated and applied to the PHE study. This household survey may underestimate the number of users: information on the limitations of this survey is available . This survey dose not provide data on people who only use other IPEDs.
But Jim is not wrong about everything. Everything is just wrong. I have lost count of the abandoned houses in our Township that people have just walked away from because they could no longer make the payments. And those who are living in foreclosed houses that were either theirs or someone else’s that the lien holders simply fill in order to keep the properties from going south are also beyond counting. Our local JCP&L rep told our Committee recently that 75% of their customers are in collections. My wife has a dozen friends that have stopped paying their mortgage payments, are tens of thousands of dollars in credit card debt and cannot even make minimum payments. One sorry soul even owes her pot guy $ on top of it all for weed for her worthless husband. None of it makes any sense at all. There seems to be absolutely NO consequences for not paying ANY debts anymore. So tell me how this is somehow sustainable, because it defies all logic at least to me. This sucker should have crapped out a long time ago. What is keeping this Dead Man Walking is beyond my ability to imagine.
