is the NCAA drug policy (includes banned substances, testing, punishments, etc.). Do you agree with the policies? Do you disagree? If you could change anything, would you and what would it be?

I Personally believe that the NCAA drug policy is quite exaggerated and not fair at the same time. There has been gaps and not fair judgmental on some athletics as well as students who may someday be like kobe or LeBron James. Every year, there are new type of drugs that can’t be detected by the NCAA and players are always one step ahead from the drug test. The NCAA should put extra effort on awareness and educating athlete on how harmful those drugs on them instead of testing them randomly and ruin their career for a random drug test.

The policy bans only substances which enhances performance but allows for certain class of substances which do not affect the performances and do not contain caffeine, alcohol. So the policy supports healthy competition by banning performance stimulating products which needs to be supported. Changes can be suggested on educating students on the banned substances and create a place for appealing where a student is given enough opportunity to raise his concerns.

the NCAA is taking the drug testing policy in a whole new level where they don’t give drugs it’s priority in terms of risk on the consumer, you can’t compare weed with PEDs. Also it’s a matter of a personal choice. I understand that the NCAA will have to do some critical decisions to whoever is using this type of drugs, but for other drugs that are not harmful and they help athlete somehow to achieve their primary goal which is winning, why ban it then?.

  1. Good post. I agree with you when you say that the testing is unfair. Some players get targeted when its suppose to random and some players get looked passed. I personally don’t think the NCAA takes testing to serious and that needs to change if they want it to be substance free like they preach.
