Rules and Regulations

There are a few rules as a member of this list/forum. Few restrictions result in the greatest number of innovative contributions. However, the following rules below are critically important.


If you are subscribed to this forum and/or send messages to the forum, you are agreeing to these rules. These rules apply to members of nearly any Internet news or interest group. The rules are:

Rule 1

Do not use the forum for illegal purposes, including but not limited to defamation, violation of intellectual property laws, violation of antitrust or unfair competition laws or violation of criminal laws.

Rule 2

Do not intentionally interfere with or disrupt other forum members, network services, or network equipment. This includes distribution of unsolicited advertisement or chain letters, propagation of computer worms and viruses, and use of the network to make unauthorized entry to any other machine accessible via the Forum.

Rule 3

Do not use the Forum for solicitation, promotion, or sales of commercial products or services including for any cannabis products. "Commercial" in this context used for purposes of evaluating listserv messages means communications whose primary purpose is to advance the business or financial interests of any person or entity, or otherwise to promote a financial transaction for the benefit of the author directly or indirectly. Prohibited communications include advertisements for commercial cannabis products, events, and/or services, notices regarding rental of office space, or direct solicitations of listserv members to purchase products or services. Messages that may be of financial benefit to listserv member but are not prohibited because they do not inure to the financial benefit of the author include news of job listings or position openings, or discussion of professionally-related products or services where the listserv member conveying the information is not in the business of selling the products or services. Announcements that provide useful professional information to List members but may also have some incidental commercial benefit to the sender (e.g. an author who is a listmember merely advising the List of publication of a professional book) typically would not be "commercial" for purposes of this restriction.

Rule 4

Do not use this forum for any communication that could be construed in any way as support for or opposition to any candidate for a federal, state or local public office. The Federal law providing for the Research Society on Marijuana’'s tax exempt status absolutely forbids the use of RSMj resources or facilities, including this forum, in any way that would even appear to support or oppose such a political candidate.

Rule 5

Personal replies should be directed to specific individuals rather than to the entire list. Remember to cut and paste the sender’s e-mail address when replying rather than simply hitting the “Reply” button which sends the response to the entire list.

**Note: Violation of any listserv rules may result in immediate removal from the list.

A Note from the Executive Board

The Research Society on Marijuana (RSMj) continues to take a neutral stance on cannabis use as an organization-wide policy since its inception. Researchers within this organization, including members of the Board of Directors, have no conflicts of interest to report that may affect the integrity of the organization or its quality of research. We strive to be a society driven by the evidence base addressing all aspects of marijuana use, including the therapeutic applications of marijuana-based compounds and products; recreational marijuana use; and marijuana misuse and addiction.
