Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should Performance Enhancing Drugs (Such as Steroids) Be Accepted in Sports?"
"Doping authorities are further ahead than they have ever been, but awareness that doping is prevalent in sport is also greater than it has ever been. With current antidoping policies, authorities greatly decrease the widespread use of dangerous substances in sport. However the difficulties with enforcing prohibitions lead to many areas of controversy. It is planned that subtle ongoing changes will be made to the WADA Code, making it necessary for all medical practitioners who treat athletes to know how to check up-to-date lists of legal drugs and substances."
