- Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should Performance Enhancing Drugs (Such as Steroids) Be Accepted in Sports?"
“I think there should at least be a discussion about whether steroids, in some form, should be legalized in sports. I don’t say that we should do it, but I think the discussion would be worthwhile. Look: When steroids were criminalized in 1990, the AMA [the American Medical Association] sent a representative to testify before the Senate who said that steroids can be healthfully used, under a doctor’s supervision and in low doses. And, I think it’s possible to suggest that athletes, over a long season, might use low doses in a healthful manner, under a doctor’s supervision. But in this era of hysteria that we’re in, I’m not sure we can get to that conversation.”
