Ecstasy Tabs Found With Used 'Grand Theft Auto' GamesThe father of a 12-year old boy purchased used copies of two Grand Theft Auto games for his son from a Gamestation shop. He was shocked to find ecstasy tablets in the manual. According to Telegraph UK:

"The father of a 12-year-old boy found four ecstasy tablets in the packaging of a second hand video game he bought for his son from a high street store. He bought two previously-owned Grand Theft Auto games from the shop on Sunday. After discovering the drugs he took them to a nearby police station." 

Richard Thornhill, the father, was outraged:

"I have two children and my son plays Xbox all the time. He could easily have opened the box and found them. I dread to think what the consequences would have been if he had. He is only 12. He could have died."

It's certainly terrible that this happened and Gamestation should be chastised. However, a lot of people are going to miss a very obvious point. While Thornhill is justifiably angry with Gamestation, the fact remains that he purchased two Grand Theft Auto games for his 12-year old son. That's just bad parenting.
