It’s no doubt that we are living in a golden age of gaming and ganja.
What with the advances in game technology and the various ‘Legalize marijuana’ events that are happening all over the world, including India.
Today, games are more popular, awesome and accessible than ever before! Gaming provides a feeling of control over one’s thoughts, an escape from the anxieties of everyday life, and a fantasy world where we can do as we please. And even if we do fail, there are no real-world consequences.
The relationship between marijuana and gaming has existed since years together. Although, this also signifies the relationship between marijuana and other forms of entertainment like movies, music or travelling.
Games provide an escape from reality:
For most of us, gaming provides an escape from our robotic reality of everyday life. Like most citizens of the economy, we wake up, get dressed, head to school/college/work and then we wait for the clock to turn its hands. And once we return home, all we want to do is unwind and relax.
When life weighs you down, there’s always comfort in knowing that you can go home and take some of that frustration out on unsuspecting strangers via gaming. Like most gamers that enjoy marijuana, I also believe that combining the two brings about a deepened experience in an unlimited interactive fantasy land where the mind is allowed to wander beyond the limits of all reality.
The best part? In the virtual world, you can be as you please. From fire-breathing dragons to soldiers of the army and what not.
Do you think it’s true that marijuana actually expands the memory when shared with gaming? Many scientists believe that marijuana and gaming actually are good for you. This is because gaming provides a way to improve hand to eye coordination while marijuana possesses various beneficial properties when it comes to health. However, when marijuana and games are combined, they produce extremely therapeutic results as it reduces stress and exercises the mind.
Trust the pro gamers:
Although professional gamers don’t exactly use performance-enhancing drugs similar to say an athlete using steroids, it is widely known that marijuana is utilized by many to enhance gaming abilities and sharpen focus before a match. (Though most won’t admit it!)
Did you know?
- Gamers have been smoking weed and gaming since the first Space Invaders landed in 1978. Even longer, if you consider games like pinball, slot machines and other forms of old-school arcade.
- It is very interesting to see how pro-gamers do not get caught as there exist rules in the ESL that state that it is compulsory for all the pro-gamers competing in their events to submit a saliva-based testing for doping. Any person who is caught using marijuana or any other form of performance enhancing drugs during or before a tournament will be disqualified and will also be punished with a two-year ban from future ESL tournaments.
