11-year-old’s new video game came with illicit surprise

LAKE CHARLES, La. — The debate on whether video games are harmful to kids continues to rage. The debate about whether video games that come with methamphetamine are harmful to kids is probably pretty much settled.

KPLC reports an 11-year-old opened the video game he bought Wednesday at a Louisiana GameStop to discover a baggie of meth inside.

His dad returned the game and called police. The manager for the GameStop and the company’s spokesman said used games are checked before being shipped to the store but aren’t checked again once they arrive.

They have no idea how or when the meth was placed inside the game and say they have no idea how to track where the game came from.
