Yes, of course they should be. If you can't compete without the use of performance enhancing drugs, then you are not an athlete. You're a cheater. Stick with your little video games where you can enter cheat codes all day long if you want. Leave sports to the real athletes.
Performance enhancing drugs should be ignored in all sports. I'm sick to death of hearing about it, and I'm tired of specific athletes in specific sports becoming scapegoats for all the fire. Even in mixed martial arts now, there is constantly talk of PED use. They recently banned testosterone replacement therapy.
I do not think they should be because they are near impossible to completely detect in everyone so the only way to have a completely level playing field is to allow them. Also, since sports are all about excitement, the better tuned the athlete is the more exciting it is, and PED's help with that.
The argument that performance enhancing drugs ruin pro sports is a fallacy. When a player takes performance enhancing drugs, they are only harming themselves in the long term with the increased benefit presently that they can sustain performance at a higher level. This increases the players ceiling by consuming drugs that he chooses to take. The government/governing sports body should not have a right to tell the player what they can and cannot consume.
