ACCEPTABLE USE POLICY
The mission of the Michigan Medical Marijuana Association is to Empower the Michigan medical cannabis community through education, advocacy and open communication. To provide a safe place where all who are looking for information will be welcomed and treated with respect. To bring patients and caregivers together in one voice to promote and protect the medical marijuana community.
The Michigan Medical Marijuana Association is about the medicinal use of cannabis. The larger issue of legalization and regulation of responsible adult use is a separate issue and needs to be kept separate. When posting to the forum please keep your posts related to the medicinal use of cannabis. Conflating the issues of medical marijuana and legalization in the minds of the public will be detrimental to both issues.
By registering with this site and or posting in the forums shall constitute acceptance to the rules set forth in the Acceptable Use Policy and accept the consequences of failure to comply.
The penalties for failing to comply with the policy will be as follows. Verbal warning, 24 hour ban, 30 day ban and then you will be permanently banned from the site. The penalty will fit the offense as determined by the moderators or administrators.
RULES FOR POSTING
The Michigan Medical Marijuana Association forums are for open communication on the subject of medical marijuana. All aspects of medical cannabis are open for discussion including cultivation, ingestion, indications and strains. Please do not discuss, negotiate or consummate plans for the transfer of medical cannabis, seeds or clones on this forum. Please keep all such discussions to private messages or emails.
You agree to post information that is true and correct to the best of your knowledge and is of your personal experience. If the information you post is not personal experience, we request that you provide sources (references, links, etc...) whenever it is relevant and possible.
We are not all adults that come to this site for information so please keep the foul language to a minimum. We respect the right of the people to free speech, but this is a public site and the face of the medical marijuana movement. The change of people’s perception of medical cannabis starts here with this community. Moderators have the right to delete or edit any language deemed unfit for the forum.
Disagreements and heated debate are expected and encouraged here. State your case in calm, rational terms, use appropriate citations and experts to support your case and then listen to the replies of others in a thoughtful, open manner. You're perfectly free to disagree with anything posted on this forum and say so, just don't be disrespectful when doing it.
Personal attacks of any kind will be subject to removal at the discretion of the moderators or administrators. This includes topics posted against another member, or replies to another member in any topic.
If you have an issue concerning our services, policies, or staff, please use a personal contact method such as a private message or email to a staff member. All moderators, administrators, and support staff are highlighted in the active members list. We take serious complaints to heart and will do our best to address them.
Users may not argue a moderators decision publicly. Any and all complaints directed at a moderator must first address the moderator in question via PM. If the problem can not be resolved, then the moderator and user must send their positions to the forum admin. The forum admin will make or change any and/or all final decisions.
If a topic is recognized as being posted in the wrong forum, or if the post is a violation of our guidelines then please contact a moderator either via PM or the 'report post to moderator' feature; please do not respond publicly to the member - a member of staff will do what is required upon contact. Any person/s who attempt to present themselves as a Moderator by posting negatively to a member's topic (which has been posted in error and requires locking or moving to another forum) will be sent a PM warning and placed into moderation queue upon further actions.
When responding to threads please keep your replies to the topic of the thread. Off topic posts will be moved or deleted at the discretion of the moderators.
Before starting a new thread check/search for a thread already started on topic and reply to that thread.
If you are just asking questions please do so in the appropriate sub-forum and not in a blog.

Posts by caregivers offering their services are allowed one post a month. Caregivers may bump their thread once every thirty days instead of starting a new thread. If you start another thread, the moderators will delete it. The terms between caregiver and patient are a private matter between them.
We reserve the right to remove any topics we deem inappropriate or disruptive to our community. Please note that, from time to time, topics may be removed for being inappropriate even though your individual post in that topic may have been perfectly fine. Please do not feel this reflects badly on you.
