That doesn't follow (*), but taking it on its face the penalties are lower for amps, indicating that they are less of an affront to competition.
(*) For example, the roid ban could have been a codification of something always contrary; the amp ban could have been a discouragement of the use of addictive drugs, with little to no competitive intent or effect. The waiver process and frequent granting of waivers for amps would be consistent with this dichotomy.
