Jose Canseco and performance-enhancing drugs go together like peanut butter and jelly. We all know that. Whether it be admitting to taking steroids during his playing days or trying to out everyone else who did in his best-selling book, Canseco has become a poster child for illegal substances. Now 47 years old and playing in the Mexican Baseball League, he has once again been accused of doping.
According to ESPN Deportes, the president of the Mexican League, Plinio Escalante, has confirmed Canseco took a banned substance which he does not have a prescription for. The report says that banned substance is testosterone, which Canseco admitted to taking on his Twitter account Wednesday. However, he claims he has a prescription.
“How can I test positive when I never took any test don’t believe everything the media tells you,” he wrote. “The truth always comes out I am not using any illegal substances. Don’t be so quick to judge till you here the truth that’s a sure sign of ignorance hatred and jealousy.
