My thought on this is that if people are allowed to post projects related to illegal activity, it's going to upset a lot of members.  If people are not allowed to do so, I doubt anybody will miss it.  I mean, I can't imagine anybody getting upset or not joining the site because there aren't any roach clips or bongs here.

I think it's a very solid, excellent decision.

I think you made a good decision, if anything- because it is illegal to use pot etc. You need to look out for the well being of this site too. Cheesy

Keep up the awsome work of running a completely wonderful site and forum, Leah!

I commend you, I know you do not want to alienate anyoneon this site but the fact is, if some kid is caught smoking a joint by mom and then mom says why are you doing this and they say I learned it on craftster, then they come after you, I know it is stupid, but look ahow many stupid court cases there are out there that people win every day because of a technicallity.

I appreciate you letting us know,I was wondering where  my bookmark went, I was just a lurker wanting to read the comments...LOL Cheesy

Good call, Leah!

I think you're right to do this.  Who knows what legal snarls these posts could cause you if they remain?  Besides, this is a crafting site.  Good call.

I agree.  My mum would kill me if I told her I was smoking pot because someone on craftster said it was cool (or somehow endorsed it).

Sometimes it's easy to forget that behind those screennames are people the same age as my kids.

Okay. Not to spam this topic... but my ads are advertising vaporizers great for 'practical use at home and 'pharmaceutical drug dispersal'
