Code of Conduct

Welcome to WeedPortal! This website is here to provide you with a friendly environment where you can discuss ideas, give growing advice, ask questions and converse about any other aspects of growing marijuana with other members. Communities are at their best when participants treat their fellow posters with respect and courtesy. Therefore, we ask that you conduct yourself in a civilized manner when participating on WeedPortal.

The guidelines and rules listed below explain what behavior is expected of you and what behavior you can expect from other community members. Note that the following guidelines are not exhaustive, and may not address all manner of offensive behavior. As such, the forum moderators shall have full discretion to address any behavior that they feel is inappropriate. Your access to this website is a “privilege,” and not a “right.” We reserve the right to suspend your access to WeedPortal at any time for reasons that include, but are not necessarily limited to, your failure to abide by these guidelines.

We reserve the right to evaluate each incident on a case by case basis. The action we take may be more lenient or more severe than those listed under each category.

While growing and consuming cannabis and posting on this website, you will encounter thousands of other members who share different experiences and come from vastly different backgrounds. While certain language and images may not be offensive to you, consider the fact that that same language and images may have a completely different effect on someone else. We’ve done everything we can to make this a great environment – now it’s up to you!
