Default THE MENTION OF ILLEGAL SUBSTANCES IS AGAINST FORUM RULES**READ ME**

As of late there have been far too many slip ups or outright blatant disregard for this rule. THIS IS A RULE NOT OPEN TO DISCUSION, PERIOD, END OF STORY. Now that I have gotten my point across, here is the rules on mentioning illegal substances, read and heed. I am quickly losing my patience issuing warnings, there will be no more warnings issued concerning this topic. So without further ado, here is the rule in writing yet again.

There are to be no drug references in posts. This can be anything from *****, to someone talking about *******, to the mention of *** being something else a poster smokes. This will not be tolerated in this community. This includes such phrases and euphemisms as "not always shisha" ,"the other stuff", "the stuff we don't mention" ETC. If it's not tobacco or herbal based SHISHA, just don't mention it.

The hookah community does NOT want people to come to this forum, (or other forums related to hookah), and find any connection between hookahs and illegal substances. This will provide them with ammunition to use in anti-hookah campaigns. "See, this person says they smoke *** and hookahs, so we should ban hookahs!" While the vast majority of us don't do illegal drugs and would never think of using our hookahs for the same, we KNOW that the few mentions will be the ones these types of people and the media will look at.

What you do on your own time is your business and we know the origin of the hookah so don't even try that argument, its not what we are HERE to discuss.

Thanks for reading ...

Lets not make this ticky tacky, use your best judgement. If it feels wrong, it probably is, if you have to stop and ask yourself if it COULD be perceived as a rule violation, it probably is.

i wasnt saying about my posts, i only said it once before and that was quoting someone else so i never officially said it because i took it as a drug reference so didnt want to say it but other people have said it. now all depends on what stance you take on the thing but its usually said when there is a fight so it can be taken either or way.

Well, smoke a bowl, is definitely something related to smoking a hookah ...

As Husky said, use your best judgment ... if you question whether it is questionable? Then it probably is, and best to reword what you are trying to say.

If it is used in the context that is NOT Related to Hookah, then that would be a rule violation. But if you are saying something like "Ohh man, I smoked a great bowl of AF Grape last night" that is totally acceptable.

Chill out and smoke a bowl to the forums.
can be taken either or way even with the other words in the post. its happened in other posts thats why i asked. its not my best judgement, as i said i do not say that phrase. the one time i did (i had to look it up) i was quoting someone else so i never really said it.

If you mean it as "Chill out and smoke a bowl" and you are referring to a hookah bowl, with shisha/tobacco in it, then that is within the guidelines ...
