5. If other drugs banned, it is unfair comparatively NOT to ban PEDs.
6. Side effects of PEDs will place a burden on medical/social/psychological support services.
8. (you can argue both sides of the statement) - if a drug is used to treat a disease, and coincidentally helps the athlete to outperform competitors, is that fair?
9. It is difficult to specify what is legal and what is illegal; in other words, where do you draw the line? Which drugs? A certain blood level of the drug? A certain level in the breath as with alcohol? A certain level in the urine? These are all highly variable in different individuals with different body structure, liver enzyme levels (that break down drugs), other "legal" [=medically prescribed] drugs causing drug interactions, kidney function variability [may be due to age] changing urine levels, etc etc etc.

Hope this makes things a bit clearer.
