Sorry for the noob question, but does this also apply to purchasing substances online that are legal in most places? E.g., something like Caapi Copy? I saw discussion that trading amongst members is not allowed.

I ask because there is one such product that it would be a shame not to share information about.
 

STS is a community for people interested in growing, preserving and researching botanical species, particularly those with remarkable therapeutic and/or psychoactive properties.

Harmala alkaloids & plants are illegal in several countries. France, Canada, Belgium, & I believe a few others.

Considering this forum has members around the world I assume it is against the rules.

As a general rule of thumb the only sourcing talk you should consider safe is live plants & seeds from legal plants & even then only in the appropriate subforum where the information & discussion is safe from google indexing.

And another bump, since people keep forgetting this over and over again. Thumbs down

yes

various clear points have been made on this in this thread

the DMT Nexus policy of no buying/selling (personal use only) is more than just a major safeguard for users of the site against legal penalities,
and more than part of harm minimisation (as Snozzleberry pointed out earlier in the thread), as people do not know the safety of unknown substances, and commercialism has already damaged some plant species,
it is also a significant ethical purpose of attitude..

as i see it, the commodification of DMT is the beginning of the end for the hope that this molecule may shine some light or insight in the world..
whether it is seen scientifically (secularly) as an important tool for mind research with therapeutic applications, or as a means to spiritual insight (a sacrament for some), or as simply the great 'mystery', making it a commodity goes against the very kinds of reasons given by many of it's enthusiasts for it's suggested use..

i won't go into all the various harms that can come out of sale and marketing of DMT to the public - i would ask that people simply use some intelligence, and heart..

This actually serves as a great reminder to be much more mindful of my speech in my posts.

I do my best to adhere to the norms of the site, and can assure you any violations of those norms or near violations of those norms on my part is unintentional. I understand that intentional or not it's my responsibility to be mindful of the content of my posts, which is why a review here seems in order, I may have been fairly unmindful in recent posts, and will seek to correct this.

Trav maybe more strict moderation around this specific rule is in need.
There are some very good points made here & yet still I frequently see posts that have to be edited by mods, often times from the very same people, most of them newer members.

I think some people fail to realize the seriousness of this issue & blatantly disregard the rule, sometimes even going as far as attempting to come up with what they think are slick ways around this rule (watermarked images, wordplay, mentioning keywords, etc.).
