Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should Performance Enhancing Drugs (Such as Steroids) Be Accepted in Sports?"
"There's a lot of speculation about the percentage of athletes who are using performance-enhancing drugs. There are always new versions of drugs coming out and new ways for athletes to take the drugs. The unfortunate thing is, most might not be doing it, and maybe even the vast majority aren't, but they all get tarred with the same label now... There's a lot of cynicism among sports fans. When [Olympic swimmer] Dara Torres does something, the first response now is, is she really on something?"
