CANNABIS CULTURE – Cannabis Culture has launched a new Facebook Page to replace the one deleted recently by the social networking site.

The original Cannabis Culture Facebook Page, which had over 25,000 fans, (and was available at this link) was erased by Facebook administrators on December 23, 2009. Shortly afterward, administrators of the page received an email message:
If you have any questions or concerns, you can visit the Terms applicable to Facebook Pages at http://www.facebook.com/terms_pages.php.
The Facebook Team
Several attempts by CC editors to contact Facebook for more information have gone unanswered, leaving little hope of recovering our 25,000+ fans.
Interestingly, when CC editors attempted to create a new Facebook Page with the words “cannabis” or “marijuana” in the title (in a number of different combinations – even just the words by themselves) an automatic message replied:
Our automated system will not approve the name “cannabis” because it contains a word or phrase that is blocked to prevent the creation of unofficial or otherwise prohibited Pages. If you believe this is an error, please contact our Customer Support team.
The new page is titled “CC Magazine“, as the word “Cannabis” is no longer allowed, despite hundreds of other Facebook Pages with the word featured prominently in in the title.
Is Facebook banning cannabis-related websites? Cannabis Culture is exploring the issue and will present more information soon.
