The issue of drugs in sport is one that has grown in importance over the past 30 years since the International Olympic Committee (IOC) first drafted its list of published classes of substances and methods in 1968. Drug testing was introduced the same year at the Mexico Olympic Games. The prohibition on the use of drugs in sport reflected the philosophy that gave athletes an unfair advantage or were dangerous to health or both. In recent times, with the discussion of the prohibition of marijuana, there has been promoted a third philosophy, that athletes have a public responsibility as role models.
