Lots of news coming in when it comes to eSports, PED’s, and the logical step of drug testing when it comes to the matter.
According to WADA, bans can be issued “during competition” when participants are found to be using recreational drugs such as cocaine, marijuana, and MDMA (ecstasy). Medical use of marijuana has not been addressed.
The ESL released a statement.
“PEDs is a topic we are discussing at an organizational level and we will need to address industry wide moving forward to maintain competitive integrity,” read the statement. “We know we have to have a bigger discussion about it and that it’s a problem everyone is facing.”
eSports will have a drug testing policy, for medical users of prescription drugs or marijuana the future is still unsure.
