Howdy Board Rulers,
I just received a warning concerning a post I made on a thread, about someone having problems with their dreams and I mentioned that if the OP was
smoking weed, that would cause them to kNot remember their dreams, and if that was the case, then stop smoking weed and they'd remember their dreams
The warning said:
"ATS has an absolute zero tolerance policy with regards Any discussion of illegal drug use on the boards."
First, my comments were kNot illegal in nature, just words of advice. Really no different than suggesting someone kNot dew drugs, which should kNot
violate the Rules.
Second, I happen to be where it isn't illegal to smoke weed (California) and since there are many places in the world that it isn't illegal and
considering if ATS were to have a "zero tolerance policy" about ALL illegal activities, based on ALL laws of the world, We wouldn't be able to talk
about anything. Case in pont, at this time, a thread is bannered on ATS that discusses prostitution, which is illegal in many areas of the world,
including most states in the United States, yet there it is being bannered on ATS. I see nothing wrong with discussing that situation, but it is an
illegal activity in most areas. So what would happen to me if I started a thread asking peeps their thoughts on legalizing weed, which several members
also happened to mention in the prostitution thread? Did they also get a warning for discussing smoking weed, although kNot advocating breaking any
My primary question is, how is it possible for anyone to know what laws ATS applies to its Rules, if laws are different worldwide? Plus, why can't
We discuss things like smoking weed, as long as We are kNot advocating breaking any laws?
