What are they going to do? Ship all doping suspects off to Strasburg? Politically ill advised. It reeks of the one-world-government self-righteous socialist internationalists. I don't think "sport" needs it. I don't think any of us need more wessonality on the playground slide.

The U.S. already has laws that criminalize the non-medical use and possession of anabolic steroids. These laws were created specifically to target PED use in elite sports.

But as you note, they have been terribly ineffective and I would add, misguided. The laws ended up being used against non-athletes. Federal prosecutors have had to use "perjury laws" of all things to prosecute athletes for doping.

Also as noted, there are no anti-doping laws in the U.S. (i.e. laws against steroid use specifically in a sporting context) only steroid laws (broader laws that cover steroid use in all contexts).

This differs from the U.K. where athletes (and non-athletes) can legally possess and import personal supply of AAS (for personal use only). But steroid distribution is still criminalized.

I think the IOC has a problem with the fact that athletes in the UK can technically use AAS and PEDs without violating the law. This is not possible in the U.S. So I don't see the IOC having a problem with the existing U.S. laws.
