Im asking this question because the experience was definitely a reason why i wanted to go to law school. However I'm not sure if I'm allowed because of the nature of the topic.

Part of my reasoning to go to law school was because for the last 5 years i have had little success or bad luck when it came to my career. In order for me to survive I resulted to selling illegal anabolic steroids. I was eventually caught, but never charged due to cooperation. I figured it would make a more powerful statement if i could include this, but obviously if having that in your personal statement precludes you from going to an institution that preaches the laws we need to follow, i will leave it out.

You will almost certainly need to disclose your past criminal activity anyway as part of the C+F portion of your application, so might as well go whole hog and use it in your PS.
