Question about the T&C

Just curious...

The T&C bans topics about illegal drugs. What about discussions about the laws and cases? Government involvement in illegal drug activity? Medical/agricultural conspiracy regarding the ban of those illegal products?

Maybe those are topics for another board anyways, but it seems like some of those issues would be relevant here.

Drug discussions are always very touchy ones. As long as they don't get into talking about USING illegal drugs then they're acceptable, but it's a really fine line to walk. There have been some really good discussions shut down because they got into the use of drugs and closed down.

I think I remember that right, but a mod can correct me if I'm wrong on that.

2e.) Illegal Activity: Discussion of illegal activities such as drug use, drug paraphernalia

I believe the key word is 'activity'.

There is plenty of room to discuss law, political conspiracy in relation to the production and distribution of illegal substances as well as the notion that the major drug companies 'put down' natural remedies in favour of expensive drugs which they would prefer you buy from them.

But, when the post concerns itself with 'personal' experiences when using such substances, or the paraphenalia associated with them, then it crosses the line into an area where it is discouraged by the T&C.

I'm sure there will be other responses on this question...but that's how I've interpreted it.

Awesome. That's what I was looking for.

I believe we don't like threads which devolve into legalisation issues either really, to be honest it's generally just a good idea to avoid the whole subject because people quickly start going down the wrong route.
If you think it's important and it doesn't involve legalisation and/or use/experiences then give it a go, it'll soon be deleted/closed if it gets out of hand.
