Here’s Some of the Drugs Banned By the Electronic Sports League

By: | August 17th, 2015


The Electronic Sports League recently released a comprehensive list of drugs banned for e-sports players that goes beyond cocaine and steroids.

In fact, the ESL, in association with the World Anti-Doping Agency, has outlawed Adderall use in order to reduce the number of players relying on the drug to stay focused, awake, and increase reaction times.

For now, the plan is to conduct saliva tests instead of skin tests.

“Tests will be performed at our discretion at any time during tournament days, and will take place in a designated testing area,” the league said on Reddit. “Naturally, player’s privacy comes first.”

Contestants with prescriptions for Adderall can still use the drug and oh yeah, you can smoke as much weed as you want as long as you’re not stoned on competition days.
