You Can Smoke Pot In GTA V, According to Ratings Board

Kotaku had a hunch it was going to be possible, and, now, the people who rate video games are letting the cat out of the dimebag. You can smoke pot in GTA V, according to the Entertainment Software Ratings Board. That same group has offered a bunch of other mild spoilers for GTA V, if you're interested. (Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, Xbox 360)

True story. Stick with weed if you aren't really a fan of bodily harm.

^Vaporizing's where it's at..
0ut1awed  +   707d ago
Vaping is fun and healthy but if your trying to go down that road eating it is REALLY where it's at.

4-6 hours of fun compared to 2. Not to mention at-least a hour or so of simply going up before you hit a stoping point. Good times indeed.

"Players' character can, at various times, consume alcohol and drive while under the influence." -at the bottom of the ESRB rating

Uh, this was already stated on their website.

"Prefer to self medicate? There are many dispensaries for those that grow truly sick of running out of marijuana."

They showed that in the GTA V gameplay trailer when Franklin came out of the Pot shop.
You can see the marijuana sign in the back.

Agree. It's a lovely...lovely substance. Unfortunately, legalization may never happen. Why? It works better than most prescription drugs out there and if it were legal...more people would smoke a bowl than pay hundreds of dollars for pills. Shame really...it could wipe out the national debt in a year or so if the Gov sold it to us.

You can also smoke Pot in our lovely city Amsterdam (a.k.a. shithole), here in The Netherlands.

Similar names, similar pot cultures ;)

(Vancouver, BC)
0ut1awed  +   707d ago
And yet you still run into legality issues with weed in both of those places.

Sure it's legal in Amsterdam....if you're a local. Weed has been illegal for foreigners for a year or so now. The government is tolerant of it but with laws like that coming into effect I would not hold your breath on that holding out forever. They are already cracking down on psychedelics.

Of course it's technically illegal in Vancouver but it's not like a large amount of people really care. Your current prime minister is trying to change that though (for the worst).

Meanwhile it's totally legal a few miles south of Vancouver in Washington and of course Colorado as well. I mean at the Seattle Hempfest this past weekend cops were handing out bags of doriotos labeled with what you can and can't do under the law.


Now this has a long way to go to spread across the US. Still I'm usually the first to hate on the stupidity of US drug laws but it looks like all the "weed friendly" places are starting to fall while the US is letting it become legal??

What alternate reality have I slipped into??? I just wish I was in Seattle and not in the middle of the bible belt conservatives here in North Carolina. Jesus I can't wait to get out of here.

Funny that your name relates to you legality knowledge :P

In British Columbia, starting in September there is a petition to have a referendum on legalizing pot. The official petition only need 10% of registered voters to go to referendum. And it's estimated that 75% of BC votes do not support the current laws - so we'll see soon.
0ut1awed  +   707d ago
Haha pretty much. It's actually a derivative of my old username, OutlawedToker but I eventually decided that was a little too blatant and kind of childish. It can also be a gamble to tell people you barley know IRL your username is OutlawedToker haha.

Good luck to you and your fellow countrymen and women with that vote! As you said I don't really see it not passing within an area like that.

Make no mistake I am fucking jealous. I just got back from my first trip to the west coast, Washington state non the less. I fell in love with Seattle. The music scene was everything I loved and people simply weren't conservative assholes. While I never made it to Canada I imagine the scene between Vancouver and Seattle has to be somewhat similar in these aspects. I did however kayak around the San Juan Islands so I was kind of in between Vancover and Victoria :)

But I'm stuck in this place known as North Carolina where weed and the devil mean the same thing to 90% of the people. If they only knew how backwards that logic was...

Now players doing it at home can do it in the game at the same time. Awh, what a more bonding feeling.
RavageX  +   707d ago
This might sound silly but...

I wonder if you can actually smoke it whenever you want, or if you have to go to a place, enter and you come out coughing, etc?

I think it would be cool if dealers walked around on the streets and you could buy it that way, AND what would be even cooler is if some of them were undercovers and could bust you.

OR you could sell it yourself...

Even though I don't smoke(or drink really) I think it would be fun in-game to smoke and cruise the streets....even online with friends.

Hey...it's better than doing it in real life.

Yeah I also hope it's something you can do really in-game, as in walk around and experience the GTA world with a slightly different perception! Hell it'd be great if they covered the whole range of recreational drugs!

Online would be hilarious. A whole bunch of friends get drunk and stoned and run around town, better yet drunk racing or something. None of these things which anyone would actually condone doing in real life :p

Also, sweet avatar man. Love the bebop.
