It's a red herring how? The argument was that only drugs that are known to enhance performance should be on the list, and because blow doesn't ( because his gut tells him so) that fireman shouldn't be subject to WADA sanctions. That argument is proven vacuous by drugs like medium ( almost certainly no enhancement) and caffeine ( very likely some enhancement for some events) where one is on the list and one is not. People who do not understand keep yapping about the lady's list of PED's. There is no such list ( although their list of prohibited substances includes some PED's). If you can get pinched for meldonium which isn't a Ped, whining that blow shouldn't be on the list ( it is )or that even if it is on the list, but we shouldn't punish people for sucking it up their nostrils means that the list is now subjective. A move to subjectivity kills the objective nature of the list. The gc/ms doesn't care what your motivations were.
