In peaceful difficulty, it is possible to give yourself status effects with the /effect command, but not with tipped arrows. This is inconsistent.
- Get a bow and a tipped arrow.
- Set difficulty to peaceful.
- Set gamemode to survival or adventure.
- Shoot the tipped arrow straight up so that it hits you.
You get the status effect from the tipped arrow.
You do not get any status effect.
