As long as they engage in active competition, athletes are exempt from Cyberia's drug farm requirements.
At the beginning of a sporting event, athletes fill out a disclosure form revealing the drugs they use to enhance their performance. They also reveal any payments they've taken to influence their performance (from betters and bookies, for example). Officials immediately post this information on electronic tote boards in the stadium and on the Internet so sports fans at the event and persons placing wagers from home are fully informed of all relevant factors.
The playoff basketball game between the Vestal Virgins and the Divine Rights provides a risible example of how such information affects a sporting event. The centers of both teams had each taken bribes to throw the game. However, the shooting guards of each team (who were not packing heat, much to the disappointment of the more bloodthirsty fans) were taking speed to enhance their, well, speed.
A typical play involved the Virgin center trying to dunk the ball into his own basket, where he was blocked by the Right center (probably goal tending, but the referee, also on the take, ignored the violation). In the resulting scramble the Right shooting guard came up with the ball and raced down the court toward the opposite basket. However, both drug crazed shooting guards, traveling at incoherent speed, collided at midcourt, knocking each other out.
The game went downhill from there.
Athletes are exempt from living on drug farms as long as they are performing. After the cessation of their career, they have a year to get their system clean. If they are not clean and sober after a year, they have to go to a drug farm.
