    No I haven't, but I have to admit that I thought this thread was going to probably be about marijuana!

    The growth hormone drug you are talking about has actually been available for a number of years. Unfortunately it is very expensive, so only people with alot of money or very good insurance coverage can actually afford it.

    it's been avialable to people who have a serious problem or are extremly short for a medical reason, but it is just now being released to the public. but yeah it is expensive, about 20000 for a years worth and you have to take it for about three or four years

    I've never heard of it, but from what you describe, it sounds a little dumb to me. Unless for medical reasons, Why can't people just be happy with how they are?

    I had a boy in my class in high school who took it . He was only 4' tall. for a boy it is very horriable to be that short. He got 21/2 inches talller After high school he made us all look stupid we always told him to become a jocky he did and is one of the highest paid guys around now. Being only 5'2" tall I understand wanting to be taller.

    I'm a girl, so I'm sure it is different than for boys, but I'm 5'1" and wouldnt' change it for the world. I enjoy being small. My bf is 6'5" though. I figured I'd better choose someone tall for my gene pool. But interestingly, he prefers small women and says most tall men do as well.

    I do think that unless its for medical reasons the growth hormone should be avoided. I've heard about it, watched a short blurb about it in Bio, and I feel very neutral towards it.

    Thank you Wolf_Q!

    My cousin was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 2-3. His growth was stunted by all the chemo/radiation and he is (was?) on the growth drug.

    I agree. I'm short but I am happy with myself. Zippy, I'm sorry about your cousin but I do believe this is a valid reason to take the drug. Really has nothing to do with cosmetic reasons,
