Steroids and other illicit performance enhancing drugs have become the biggest scourge of professional sports leagues, and that’s why it is time they were made legal. PED’s or steroids became a problem around the early 1940’s and since then no one has been able to stop them. They started being used by the USSR for the Olympic Games and at the time the Soviet Union was dominating in every single sport, now performance enhancement drugs (PED’s) have come a long way and are a lot more complex, but one issue is still common; the moral rights concerning them.

Just like any drug steroids have a positive and negative influence on the body in sports. Steroids of this kind are called Anabolic Steroids.

Just After World War II steroids started to increase and be taken into sports. It became many athletes daily routine to dope up before a game.
They sparked many different conflicts throughout Germany, and even throughout the world. If you were living back in 1936 you would consider the Olympics as an
However, ideas can also make the world a better place. Two people with an idea on raising money for charity or medical research can quickly turn it into a huge corporation that helps people in need and collect funding form the public to aid medical research to produce cures for terminal illnesses. For example, a friend of college student Pete Frates who was diagnosed with ALS decided to pour a bucket of ice water on his head as a practical joke. This small idea turned into a worldwide phenomenon in which actors, various sportsmen and notable celebrities decided to post videos of them getting dunked with a bucket of ice water on their heads in order to raise awareness on the ALS syndrome. This campaign achieved notable success.

Since the conception of the Olympic games in ancient Greece, athletes have been participating in competitive sporting events to prove physical supremacy and acquire the honor and societal hierarchy that could be earned by the victors. In this infantile-era of athletic competition, the primary motivation for these athletes was simply to earn the coveted gold medal and obtain social prestige. However, in today’s hypercompetitive societal environment, a generic slab of gold is not a sufficient incentive to motivate world-class athletes. Immense financial compensation has driven participants in these games to push the limits and bend the rules to the point of breaking in order to gain the greatest advantage over their opponents. In the modern sporting era, the most accessible way to gain this advantage is by supplementing training with anabolic steroids.
As WW I saw the large-scale use of non-conventional chemical weapons, it was expected that WW II would see more extensive use of biological weapons. During this war, many countries conducted research programmes to develop bio-weapons; the Japanese programme to produce a bio-weapon, was considered as the most ambitious (1892-1959). The research in this direction started in 1928; when Lieutenant general (Lt. Gen.) Ishii visited many European and American countries to learn useful techniques and information about the possible uses of biological weapons. Upon returning to his homeland, he was provided a substantial grant in order to constitute a massive bioweapons research centre, known as the Unit 731, located at Beiyinhe in Manchuria. The research centre staffed over 3,000 scientists, mainly microbiologists.

Commonly known as juice, roids, and gym candy, anabolic steroids or PEDs (performance enhancing drugs) are illegally used for unfair advantages by many players in Major League Baseball. Since the 1930’s, steroids have been available for use. Anabolic steroids are a synthetic type of male hormone, testosterone, that are used in combination with a workout. Also similar to steroids are human growth hormones commonly known as HGH. Both anabolic steroids and HGH help contribute to endurance during a hard workout, greater muscle mass and strength, and quicker recovery.
In 1889, Bud Galvin became the first man to use steroids in american sports when he tried to inject hormones from animals into himself. “Charles Brown-Sequard's "Elixir of Life," which became the earliest known performance enhancing drug in American professional sports when Pud Galvin of the Pittsburgh Alleghenys used it in 1889” (VICE). Since then steroids have been a staple in american sports, especially the game of baseball. When people think of the best player in baseball many people will say without even thinking about, Babe Ruth, the great yankee slugger who hit close to 720 homeruns in what people will call the dead ball era. Babe Ruth, however may have been using some sort of performance enhancing drug when he was still playing with
In baseball today, the common solution to deal with steroid use is to hand out suspensions.

Alex Rodriguez in baseball today has been a common face with the discussion of steroids due to his big home runs and RBI stats. It has been proven that Alex Rodriguez has abused steroids yet he has continue used them.

Steroids are a drug which can help you and can be very harmful to the body if someone use it too often, causing liver problems and can cause bones to be very brittle. This substance is banned from all major sports, but somehow athletes find ways to cheat the system and use them. Athletes have paid huge fines and have been suspended from the sport for such thing. . In 2015 Cable News Network (CNN) article, “Why Sport Should Allow Doping,” Ellis Cashmore, a professor of Sociology at Aston University in England states, "Athletes from all sports have made their intentions clear--they intend to use performance-enhancing substances no matter how severe the punishments.
