I think for a long time yet, the vast majority of well-adjusted people will not accept the ingestion of substances purely to improve sporting performance many of which can be highly detrimental to general health.
Sport will be seen as a special case as the injuries and other non normal life associated with sport will make medical drug use quite reasonable.
Have you noted the use of mind drugs for exams etc and the vast army of gym monkeys who think performance drugs are OK.
Also what if it turns out that the drugs are healthy and mitigate the detrimental effect of training.
When they find they cant afford to control sports drugs then await an about turn based on the above.
I have posted Howmans entire speech with ref to the clever dopers never getting cought.
Give it ten years then await the WADA Berlin Wall.An other ten years for the truth of BJ's run and all the others and then gold medal back to BJ.
