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
