After a considerable amount of thought, I have decided that I no longer have the time or energy required to run this group. However rather than shut the group down completely, I thought it would be best to ask if anyone would like to assume ownership of the group. In my mind this group has always been for the members. So I think it is only right, if one of those members would like to run, they should have that chance.

If you are interested in doing this, please send me a note.

Thanks,

Hiii

First I was wondering why my deviation got declined, but then I read the rules.. 
This group doesn't accept drug "paraphernalia"?

though I respect your whishes I just wanted to point this out:

Nicotine is a worse drug than thc.

Please don't be the kind of people that think cigarettes and alcohol are no drugs just because they're legal in your country.

Have a good day!

Not to get into semantics, but this group does see cannabis as part of the illicit drug trade.  Personally, I don't smoke, but will defend anyone's right to do so - I'm pro legalization.  However, the intention behind this group is about tobacco consumption, and we do not endorse images that contain drug paraphernalia.  As such, we cannot accept images that show cannabis or other "non tobacco" smoke.
