Charter of uk.rec.drugs.cannabis

(Not Moderated)

This newsgroup is for those interested in the recreational use of cannabis and derived products. This includes (but is not limited to) the legal, political and medical ramifications of obtaining and using the drug, symptoms and side-effects. The primary focus of the group is on use of cannabis in the UK, although related international issues may be raised when appropriate (EU rulings, for instance).

Medical and scientific issues may also be on topic (particularly medical effects of recreational use of cannabis).

Note that while cannabis is not legal in the UK is is unwise to ask or answer questions about where to obtain cannabis or details of production on a public newsgroup.


Advertising is forbidden.


Messages posted to this newsgroup must not be cross-posted to more than a TOTAL of four newsgroups, and then only where the subject matter is appropriate to the other groups (and the charter of those groups permits such cross-posting). Followups should be set when appropriate and extra newsgroups trimmed when the topic is no longer appropriate.
