Discussion
Oct 28, 2014

PED's in sports is a very big political discussion now a days. The use of PED's in all of the major sports has become much more prevalent over the last couple of years, in order to attempt to gain an advantage. I think players feel that they need to take every advantage Possible in order to become the best at their sport. Now I swear that very month their are several players that I here about testing positive for PED's. I care a lot about this issue because I'm very involved with sports, either playing them or watching them. In the article "Why It's Time To Legalize Steroids In Professional Sports" by Chris Smith said the legalization of PED's in sports would, "Not only would level the playing field suddenly be even for all players, it would be at a higher level,". From the other point of view August McLaughlin in the article "Cons of Performance-Enhancing Drugs," states all the serious side effects of taking PED's and other performance enhancing drugs. The side effects include altered appearance, mood swings, A multitude of health problems, and many other side effects.
