Performance-enhancing drugs are substances used by athletes to improve their performances in the sports in which they engage.
As they have become more widely used and sophisticated, various organizations have banned their use for doping in sport, developed testing and enforcement procedures to prevent athletes from using these drugs, and penalized athletes caught using these drugs.
To: U.S. Congress
We, the undersigned, call on the U.S. Congress to legalize Performance-Enhancing Drugs in sports. If legalized, the use Performance-Enhancing Drugs will be much safer due to the fact that it will be able to be monitored by doctors.
As we have seen, sports competitors use Performance-Enhancing Drugs even though they are banned. They continue to get caught and serve suspensions.
If Performance-Enhancing Drugs are legalized, this will result in more information being given to the average athlete and open medical supervision will avoid many of the health problems currently associated with performance-enhancing drugs.
