I agree in principle with what you said regarding athletes being complicit. However, to be fair mo ...

I know amateur athletes who inform themselves (take responsibility), as amateur sports hold the same illegal substances as professional sports, and they are as closely tested as professional athletes.

in any profession you are expected to keep up to date on the latest standards.
And I doubt there would be any changes in what is considered an illegal substance in sports without it being communicated out to all relevant sporting bodies.

Some do, some don't.  We have the advantage as well in that we speak fluent English.  

Normally drug / substance bans are circulated by the controlling authority for a sport to each countries controlling authority who then pass the information on to the regional authorities, then down to clubs and or the membership as well as accredited medical personnel.  It can take a couple of weeks for the information to pass through the system.  In many cases athletes are not fully informed but are simply given a list of medications / substances to not take.  It's more complex with team sports in many nations.

Don't get me wrong, I agree with what you say but I am taking the devil's advocate position.
