Interesting.  Obviously gaming competitions take place at the same 
location.  I am surprised I never consider people taking PED's while 
contesting.  The ease of obtaining prescription drugs without a 
prescription could make this possible and probable.

As we continue to age more and more people are taking more and more 
drugs to stay healthy??!!!  I guess that could be the saving grace, if 
the PED drug might interfere with the other drugs..........HI! ??????

Other than cost, I see no reason that WRTC competitors could not be 
tested.......  What a mess.

I see pro athletes suspended all the time for taking some drug to help 
them with some problem, or so they say, that is not PED related.  Where 
do you draw the line?
