It is cetainly unethical to use a substance you agreed not to use, but this comedy goes far beyond the simple contract violation that Lance committed, especially considering how governments handle drug usage by private individuals. The fact is clear: If everybody is doing it, and harms NO one else except the person taking drugs, then there's no real victim.
