With many thousands of people from many, many cultures and countries from around the world all in a group such as this one, it's necessary to have some very basic rules.
The purpose of the rules is not to restrict anyone's rights or make it so that they can't express themselves, but only to make sure that the more obvious manner of insults, flaming, and use of foul language are not problems here.
If you have any doubt about what is allowed or not, please PM any of the Moderators, Ozzydiodude, or , if you would be more comfortable speaking with them, and present what you would like to do BEFORE you do it. If this is done, it will make every one's time here more enjoyable.
Please remember that the open and real-time nature of Marijuana Culture Forums makes it is impossible for us to vouch for the validity of any content posted. As such, we are not responsible for any messages posted nor the consequences of following any advice offered within Forum posts. The views expressed in the post, you will find in these forums belong solely to their respective authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of Marijuana Culture, its affiliates, and/or donors. If you find any posts in these Forums to be offensive or objectionable, please contact us via email to the address offered as a contact for the Forums or use the 'report this post' button in the discussion forums.

The publication of this site and the use of the material on this site is meant neither to be an act of conspiracy or an intent to conspire against any statutes, regardless of jurisdiction, state, federal, national or international.
1.This is the most simple of rules. Please construct your post or chats to reflect what you're trying to say, but without the use of vulgar language, repeated occurrences of this type may cause more severe reaction by the Moderators who are entrusted to keep the peace here.
Simply put, cussing is not necessary and should not be used. If you feel like cussing in a private message to another member who is tolerant of it, then that's fine. The use of cussing in the open forums or chat rooms is not acceptable as polite conversation. Please just talk without using profanity.
2.Flaming, or open argument including, but not limited to using derogatory names toward another member, degrading comments, racial insults and sexist comments are not acceptable for use anywhere in the open forums.
3.The use of Avatars or signature lines that could be offensive to others is not acceptable. Pictures of inappropriate content can be deleted by the site staff without warning. Please, just be polite and considerate of all the other members. Picture yourself in a giant auditorium full of thousands of people from across the world. Don't do anything here that would be offensive if you put it on a giant screen in front of all the people in that auditorium. Common sense should be applied when thinking of this rule.
4.The discussion of illegal drugs other than Marijuana is not allowed in any form whatever. This site is for the discussion of Marijuana. Other sites are available for other topics. If you wish to discuss other drugs, then please do so at another site.
5.Bashing of anyone or any group is not considered polite. Please don't do that here. We're here to get away from that type of thing, not to participate in it.
6. The copying of copyrighted material from other sites and sources should be done in moderation. Small amounts of data or material is ok to reference, but please post a link to the source of the data or material so that others do not consider your usage as "stealing".
7.Please, for your own protection, do not post pictures or information about yourself or your life that would make it possible for the police to use against you or the site. No real life photos of yourself or family and friends. Anyone in the world can come to our site and look at anything you post. Be safe. Be free. Stay free.
8.The sale of marijuana or the discussion of sales is not allowed here. The purchase or sale of any items through this site is not allowed. To purchase or sell something, you must first let this total stranger know exactly who you are and where you live. That just isn't smart.
