Wrong, legalizing performancing enhancing drugs(peds) in any sport takes away from the competition.

Sport is supposed to be a competition amongst athletes and not chemists & doctors. Yes it behooves the individual athlete to learn about things like physiology or biology as to perfect their physical training and their legal intake of food and supplements. But they should not be turning their bodies into a chemistry sets.

There is also the danger of these amateur chemists overdosing or wrong dosing these substances to the point of being detramental to themselves and eventually others trying stuff only an chemically enhanced athlete would dare attempt.

Athletic competitions are supposed to be physical and not chemical.
