Steroids are one of the most known drugs used in the world of sports, but it is very harmful to others and the person taking it. A drug like this could become very dangerous by inducing “Roid Rage” which can be very dangerous. But that is not the only problem with drugs being in the world of sports. These sportsmen are highly looked upon.

Picture this every athlete in sports using drugs no one depends on skill anymore everyone depends on performance enhancing drugs like adrenaline and steroids. Many athletes today use drugs to enhance their skills in all sports. This is a problem because some athletes use their own skills and are getting beaten by athletes who use drugs.Performance enhancement drugs create an unfair advantage over those athletes who choose to rely on their own skill. Banning drugs in sports can make a difference in the athlete 's health Drugs like steroids could decrease the user 's lifespan Performance enhancers, like steroids and other forms of doping have a negative effect on long term health ¨Gary Becker, PhD Professor in the Departments
“Some have argued that at the elite level of certain sports, namely weight lifting, field events in track, bodybuilding, and perhaps the line positions in football, an athlete either uses steroids or will not be able to compete effectively.” (Committee on the Judiciary, United States Senate, 1973 & 1989). Although being told by your coach, someone whom you have bestowed so much trust in, that you will not be great unless you take drugs is inappropriate, it is still the athletes decision at the end of the day, but how are they supposed to feel after they are pressured? What are athlete’s options to choose from when they are presented with this problem, just give in so they can play their sport? William J. Morgan
One reason why doping should be illegal in all professional sports is that it has negative health effects. “Doping in Sports Pros and Cons” by Health Research Funding said, “Over many years of constantly taking drugs a person can experience diminished athletic performance” (“Doping in Sports Pros and Cons”).

“We have an epidemic of obesity in this country and sports is one of the best ways for kids to incorporate exercise in their lives…”, Jeffrey Perkel says in the article, “High school. College football comes with risks”. In the era we live in, sports represent as a big role in our society and is gaining more popularity than ever. But, many high school parents are concerned with the harmful injuries that their child can possibly obtain. Also, they worry about their child not focusing on their academic curriculum, while they only focus on their specific sport that they have chosen.
Some kids will play rougher and more physically than others trying to do better than kids on the opposing team. The Journal of the American Medical Association reports, over the past thirty years “fractures increased by fifty-six percent in girls and thirty-two percent in boys” (see figure 1). Children and kids often continue to play sports even after injuring themselves or after being injured by another person because of the fear of their parent and or coaches expectations(s) for them to win and continue playing (Muller). Parents often do not like to see their child fail in a sport they want them to succeed in (Wallace). Furthermore, parents will also push their child into sports frequently for their own enjoyment as well as pushing them into sports to keep them in shape.

DOPING IN SPORT 2.1 Performance-enhancing drugs have been around for many years. These drugs give competitors that take them an unfair advantage over those who train naturally and don’t use drugs to increase their skills and ability artificially. The spirit of sport is through the pursuit of natural human excellence. All professional athletes belong to sporting associations that have strict rules and regulations regarding the taking of drugs, and are required to be tested and for these reasons, I do not think that drug testing is a violation of a sportsperson’s rights. 2.2 Drug testing at school level is absolutely justified.
