A sure way to lose: PC Games N journalist found out how marijuana affects players

In March, rapper Snoop Dogg opened his own e-sports league, the Gangsta Gaming League, in which athletes

smoking marijuana is allowed. It is unlikely that “grass” will help players show the best results during a match, but a PC Games N journalist decided to see this for himself.

What is known

To avoid breaking the law, Benjamin Griffin flew awayto Amsterdam, where the government has legalized cannabis. Walking into one of the “special cafes,” the journalist ordered a cigar, launched Fortnite and began the experiment.

The first symptoms were not long in coming.According to Benjamin, it was as if he had moved away from the monitor and was watching the game through a keyhole. After a while, the journalist’s reaction slowed down by about five seconds, which in the conditions of an eSports match guarantees a loss.

“What little skills I had were now seriously depleted,” Benjamin writes.

Continuing the experiment, the journalist noticed thatthe sound now comes as if from a submarine, and the soul seems to have been separated from the body. So we can conclude that smoking marijuana will definitely not help you become an eSports player, but will only worsen your existing skills.
