I believe professional athletes should be allowed to use PEDs, provided they are transparent about their use and the option to play 'clean' still remains an option ('clean-only contests').

I have also heard rumors for years that some professional golfers use beta blockers (or equivalents) to 'moderate their arousal levels'...

I feel like this is gonna catch more potheads than anything. Most amphetamines and other PED have a very short half life in the body, so detection is pretty rare.

You're assuming the test can be rigged via knowing the testing dates. Random testing takes this out of the question.

I'm more curious about some of the peptides that are out there for injury recovery and overall athletic performance. They're easily detected and have been banned by most sporting organizations. I would hazard to say at least a few of the top guys have tried or are using a few of these.

it was a rhetorical question. my premise is most certainly plausible and very likely true in many instances, and we haven't even arrived at a discussion of the 'organizational culture' of many professional sports...

Yes, and I think that is the real issue: marijuana use. As I posted earlier, we'll see if this testing is ever actually implemented...

They will not be testing for pot. What would the point of that be?

You know how sometimes scientists do really seemingly-obvious studies and publish them just so that there's an official record of what everybody already knows? I'll bet it's like that.

Probably less than they would make from all of the offenders who don’t renew membership lol.

DHEA https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dehydroepiandrosterone
can be bought at walmart and many other places otc. Its banned in mlb at the very least for its PED properties. Even disc golfers can afford this one =)
