this is a response to the recent closing of the thread titled Who Said Cannabis Is
Let's begin by understanding the original post.
This kid had a brain cancer and the docs could only remove 10% of it. He went through all types of leukemia treatment and would not eat at all. The
docs kept telling the family he would not make it to see the next day, even resuscitating him at times. All hope was lost until the father said screw
it! He took the kid off of all the docs medical procedures and started giving him medical cannabis oil. The kid started eating on his own and even got
out of bed. He went back and got a check up and guess what.....HE HAS NO CANCER!!!! THE DOCS WOULD NOT EVEN COMMENT!
below the post was a video from the local news station
that reported the story.
now the conspiracy here was obvious, the cover up of the medicinal value of a plant known as cannabis ( marijuana ). As far as the original post goes
( though the original post could have been lengthened or given better presentation for it's subject matter ) the original post does not go against any
ATS rules or regulations concerning the discussion of alternative substances which is a perfectly legitimate topic as ATS ( hence the alternative
substance forum's existence )
the Alternative Substance Forum - an Overview...
Alt. Sub. Conspiracies: This forum is for the discussion of conspiracies, scandals, and cover-ups related to the trade and trafficking of illicit
drugs, and inequities in enforcement of drug-related laws.
check, this original post complies.
Personal use, advocacy of legalization, and related non-conspiratorial topics are not allowed. Members posting about personal recreational use of
drugs and related mind-altering substances may be banned without warning. This forum is not intended for discussion of legalization advocacy or
speculation of enlightenment or spiritual possibilities related to drug use.
Now, within alot of threads there are members who post 'cuss words', 'off topic posts' or somehow disregard rules and regulations. The result is
simple - the comment or post is deleted and a big banner is placed to say the reason for it's removal.
In the Who Said Cannabis Is Bad?
there are a few examples of that. There are some
posts that mods felt had disregarded the rules and regulations and the posts were deleted. This is normal and also somewhat prevalent among the
alternative substance forum because of the zero tolerance policy in the forum itself. Nothing wrong with that.
On page two of the thread the thread was closed, despite other members, including myself, posting legitimate replies, trying to follow the story and
of course - following ATS rules and regulations. Why did this happen to this thread which originally followed all rules and regulations? I sent a
message to the mod who closed it and their response was that the thread had been downgraded to talk of legalization. The mod who closed it was
Is that the case? Were all off topic remarks not deleted? There was a perfectly on topic discussion within that thread.
I pose the question: Can a poster on ATS post a thread within compliance with ATS rules and regulations, only to have it deleted because, out of their
control and out of the control of other legitimate posters wanting to discuss the subject, a few 'bad eggs' don't follow the rules?
