Honestly, in any sport practically. Are the stimulants legal? Some are, but most of them aren't. Today, given the extreme competitiveness of sports, practically athletes in all sports take stimulants to help them gain an advantage.

John Daly is a prime example. He runs through more Diet Coke (caffeine) and cigarettes (nicotine) in one round of Golf than many users of these stimulants do in one day or even one week.
