It makes zero sense that we would greatly reduce the perceived credibility of the topics that the site was founded on, limit the potential reach of our member's thoughts and ideas by a significant margin, and alienate the single source of revenue that allows the site to continue, all for the benefit of one topic that has never, ever, generated anything of value at all.
I'd be interested to know what this "single source of revenue" is. I'd also like to know what this "source of revenue" has to gain/lose from such discussions.
It just boils down to not advocating personal recreational use at this point.
this is a touchy subject and you are playing with fire.
I don't understand what you are asking jackle as in, what you are requesting is already possible within ATS under the right circumstances.
Generally I find discussion on ATS about cannabis is one sided, immature and those who profess its genius are blind to the other sides of the argument.
I've done a lot in my private life for promoting cannabis as a medical aid but never on here, never with the views of teens on this site who get high and talk nonsense.
I completely agree with the decision of the T&Cs.
So, potentially providing information to the [possibly] uninformed/ill informed that could save lives (literally and in the real world) isn't something "of value"..... ok
At this point I'm basically just asking the above. Is "recreational use" and personal medicinal experience considered the same.
I may be wrong, but I see this as a crucial and delicate time in negotiations with ideas so ingrained in the minds of TPTB that subtlety is the best way at the moment. Don't spook the animal as it walks tentatively into range by blathering on about how delicious the last one was!
This is actually something of a grey area. IMO no it's not and one should be allowed while the other isn't, but I don't make that call so I'll leave it to Bill or Mark to come and see what that is about. Considering we allow threads on research with Cannabis and no doubt that includes clinical trials in which people ingest the stuff, I'd assume yes we can discuss that. But please don't use my assumption as justification lol
ATS should ban folks talking about alcohol like it"s soda pop. Alcohol kills......even those who don't consume it. Far more dangerous than weed, with almost zero medical benefeits.
There is no way you can prove that your medical usage is medical and not recreational on the internet so until they say you can talk about them, I just don't.
