Of course not! Performance-enhancing drugs defeat the purpose/entertainment of sports!

The whole point of sports is the training and the skill. If anyone could become an athlete, sports would become dull.

No! Performance-enhancing drugs would ruin society as a whole.

Imagine a world where accurate genetic engineering is possible. People would alter themselves into monstrous beasts in the hopes of becoming a famous athlete. Sports would become a competition between companies trying to get rich by designing the mo... st effective drug, rather than between the athletes. Unless you want a world of mutants and scheming billionaires, drugs are wrong   more

Yes, performance-enhancing drugs are fine.

As long as people are entertained, athletes can use as many performance-enhancing drugs as they want. Just look at fake wrestling. The wrestlers agree to put on a show. No harm done.

Yes, but to a limit, or as a separate league.

If so, what limit? What about those that are disabled using bionic organs and appendages (although that's really a different debate entirely)?
