From this question, a topic for discussion. A few points that I can see that would be problematic:
- Not illegal everywhere - Examples are marijuana and a few other recreational drugs that are legal in some countries, yet still banned for competition
- Legal PED's - Examples - Caffeine and asthma drugs - Legal for use and for competition without any exemptions (Although caffeine does have an upper threshold)
- Legal with a TUE - Therapeutic Use Exemptions allow for usage of otherwise illegal drugs. Certain steroids (Such as testosterone) can be legal if it is medically proven that it is necessary for quality of life. There are others that are also illegal without the TUE.
It is somewhat of a slippery slope but as can be seen by the almost immediate reaction from the Oprah interview of Lance Armstrong that aired last night (01/18/13 for reference), people will be coming here looking for information, so it might be better to hash out the "preferred" method of handling the questions and answers such as "It's all bunk, the only way to get huge is steroids" and similar.
