In this episode I discuss the commentary entitled “Why The War On Drugs In Sport Will Never Be Won” by Smith and Stewart published in the journal of Harm Reduction in 2015.
The idea is that the Zero Tolerance model of Anti-Doping that we currently have is failing and maybe as a society we should consider adopting a Harm Reduction model where athletes are given drugs by their physicians and their health is monitored. I go over their 6 point Harm Reduction model and then discuss the positives and negatives of this concept.
