Grand Theft Auto 5, which releases on the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 on September 17th, will be the first of the series to feature medical cannabis dispensaries, a move which many believe will help further embed cannabis into popular culture.
The new game is based in a fictitious version of California, covering areas meant to represent Los Angeles, Venice Beach, etc..
A new, nearly 5-minute trailer reveals that medical cannabis dispensaries will be located in the game; in the trailer, one of the game’s three primary characters (players will switch between the three) is seen leaving a location with a large cannabis leaf on the front, with the words “Medical” next to it.
The store is called Smoke on the Water, and you can see the character leave with what appears to be a cannabis-infused drink.
Rockstar Games, the developer behind the game, has thus far been quiet on the subject.
