Moderate Marijuana Users 90% Less Likely to go on GTA Inspired Killing Spree
A research team at James Henderson University, Florida recently concluded a thorough, scientific study of the effects of marijuana on subjects playing Grand Theft Auto. The study asked the players to smoke half an ounce of the drug over the course of a week while playing the game. The test subjects who smoked the real drug were almost 90% less likely to commit carjacking, drive-bys or flamethrower massacres than the subjects who had been given a placebo.
Researchers were excited that they found a possible cure for video game violence. But, unfortunately, the study has also shown that about the same percentage of marijuana-using GTA players were less likely to do anything aside from playing GTA.
