The way the rules are being implemented make it difficult to refer people on this site to the appropriate forum in which discussions on cannabis for medical purposes can be held. If I can't say, "Cannabis is also good for this medical application you're talking about, but for further details, we have to go to the Cider Press," how does anyone find the discussion, unless their only purpose is to discuss cannabis?
So I hope you'll forgive me my occasional slip-up. Because of the way the rules are being implemented, this sort of situation is bound to happen. I am happy to edit my posts, as always, to conform to the publishing standards, rigidly prohibitive thought they might seem at times when applied outside the context of being nice.
So instead of this scenario, how about we sketch out the specific language that can be used, in the context of referring people looking for help, to the appropriate Cider Press forum. Is it okay to drop a link to it, and refer to the subject matter obliquely as, "...another sometimes effective herbal remedy that may or may not be available/legal where you live...", or is there some other bit of code clean enough to use and still be informative as a signpost?

But the distinction being lost is between a horrible vice and an otherwise extremely useful, function-stacking, permacultural plant
