This cannot be reasonably debated.
What can be debated is the weight one would place in "simply an increase in power" being connected to PED use. I would suggest virtually none.
But it is still evidence.
An increase in power is no more evidence of PEDs use that a person running down a street is evidence that a crime was committed.
