Be quiet already about chemical enhancements in sports. We all use chemical and mechanical aids. Steroids enhance the athlete’s performance. Great. Deduct a portion of every athlete’s salary for a medical fund for future care. Let’s do the same with all “illegal” drugs. Place the manufacture of all drugs under the Food and Drug Administration to keep all substances we ingest safe. Of course, there are side effects. Watch TV commercials for wonder drugs. They all scare me to death, but it is my own business to say “no.”
We can save millions of lives and billions of dollars if we give up these futile efforts to stop the use of selected drugs.
