New Video Game Includes A Medical Marijuana Dispensary

5

grant theft auto 5 medical marijuana pipe shopI have a guilty confession to make – I like the Grand Theft Auto (GTA) video games. In fact, I would go beyond ‘like’ and say that I am full blown addicted to Grand Theft Auto video games. When San Andreas came out, somewhere around six months of my life was gone in the blink of an eye. I had completed the game 100% several times over, but I could have probably spent at least some of that time doing something more productive I’d imagine. That’s why when Grand Theft Auto 4 came out, I just had to avoid it at all costs for fear of it’s awesomeness.

Not playing Grant Theft Auto 4 was tough, but what will likely be an even tougher battle will be avoiding Grant Theft Auto 5. From what I’m hearing, the game includes a dispensary that seems to double as a head shop. East Bay Express stated:

“The major, new open-world video game “Grand Theft Auto V,” which will be released by Rockstar Games September 17, is a ‘sprawling, satirical re-imagining of modern Southern California’ according to gameplay footage released today online. And of course, no sprawling, satirical re-imagining of modern SoCal would be complete without a medical marijuana dispensary…”

As you can see in the picture below (taken from this YouTube video), it looks cool:

I wonder how long it will take for marketing savvy dispensaries and infused product makers to realize that they should get in on the action. Could you imagine if you could specifically buy Cheeba Chews or Dixie Elixirs when you walked in? Food for thought. I wonder if there is a secret level to actually consume the marijuana…curiosity just might get the best of me. How do readers think about this? Is having marijuana in a video game a good idea? Keep in mind, it’s labeled for adults. Do you think it helps marijuana go mainstream, or do you think it will be something that opponents point to, considering that Grand Theft Auto is at the end of the day a video game. I look forward to your comments.

  1. When was the last time you believed an advertisement? Well, sure, the one I’ve posted, but not the one from the ^scammer^.

  2. Utilization of Marijuana:

    Cannabinoids significantly reduced pain in cases of people with multiple
    sclerosis. Marijuana also protects the human body from any kind of
    nerve related damage that occurs during any diseases. Usage of marijuana
    as a medicine is not a new thing to adopt it has been around since the appearance of mankind.

    Research results on the effectiveness of cannabinoids in the treatment
    of the tremors, muscle spasms and pain of multiple sclerosis (MS) – a
    disease of the nervous system that can cause muscle pain – are mixed.

    But its harder to digest an illegal drug as a medicine but it can be
    compromised by something engaging us with it. Games has the ability to
    engage people with it. I came across the marijuana themed game http://www.King-of-pot.com and which got a dual versions.

    The game got a lot of surprising element which is worthy enough to
    engage us with it. And it hosts contest and awards prizes like GTA V;
    COD; PS3 Sony Console etc. It got everything in it like a real world and
    fits to tailor our thoughts to support marijuana. For more details visit http://www.king-of-pot.com/

  3. That would be amazing! If you could actually hold a pipe and smoke then get a hippie colour effect on the screen, that would be awesome! And what if in a mission you have to get your ‘medical license’ to speak to a guy during the game…

    Nice touch to the game ;)
