Cannabis Culture Lights Up New Facebook Page

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:

Hello,

You created a Page that has violated our Terms of Use. A Facebook Page is a distinct presence used solely for business or promotional purposes. Among other things, Pages that are hateful, threatening, or obscene are not allowed. We also take down Pages that attack an individual or group, or that are set up by an unauthorized individual. If your Page was removed for any of the above reasons, it will not be reinstated. Continued misuse of Facebook’s features could result in the permanent loss of your account.

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.

    Youtube deleted pottv because they posted multiple videos in one day that had copyrighted music in them. Not because they were pro-cannabis. Youtube’s still cool.

    When Kellogs fired Phelps NORML put up a boycott Kellogs page on it’s website. Which they still have on their site to this day. You don’t see them saying it’s ok to eat Kellogs again. Why the hell would you cave to a pro-prohibition website that doesn’t want you there?

    MySpace has over 100 million more members than Facebook anyway. CC’s Facebook page should be nothing more than a link to their MySpace page. Why help Facebook by putting something more than that? That only gets them more viewers and makes them more money. How can they ban the word Cannabis? That’s the name of a plant for chrisake.

    Never had a facebook account, never will – they’re too controlling of content and lay claim to what their members post. . .

    I’ve had a MySpace for about 4 years, and it suits me just fine. I’m friends with NORML, and just found CC Mag today. . . so accept me already! =P

    so you cant goto someone house, txt, or old school dial em up?
    How about email, we have all had it a decade or more now.

    geeze I dunno what i would have done without facebook or myspace, I never talked to anyone.
    I dumped my 6 year old myspace last year, those sites ARE JOKES!
    they force stupid ads, take away privacy, and put more and more stupid rules on us.

    Take their power away, don’t visit their sites anymore.

    At least MySpace won’t delete you. Bud Buddy has a page on there but not on Facebook. That means MySpace is cool and Facebook is for fuddy duddies.

    I don’t know why people are so dumb as to use social networking sites. It’s all government surveillance one way or the other, e-bay screwed pot people a while back, you are a fool if you put your personal info and connections onto the net. It’s a NET, right? You know what nets do? They catch things and the things that are caught are then killed. That’s why I use a proxy server and cloaking. Whenever you use the internet you are being logged and coded. Facebook are fascists. Destroy them, along with your television sets and McDonalds.

    But this should be more disturbing because CC is mainly a politically focused organization and there is nothing illegal about being political about pot.

    I would protest this removal as a SLAPP violation (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Strategic_lawsuit_against_public_participation ) and urge anyone involved in setting facebook policy to prevent this sort of hampering of free speech.

    I’m with you on that one. Screw Facebook and any of these assholes who think they should be able to say what is and isn’t an appropriate word to use. The powers-that-be are so afraid of losing control that they won’t even tolerate a discussion on marijuana or other drugs and apparently don’t even want people to be able to read about it. I’ve also deleted my account as of today. For that matter, I haven’t been to You-tube since they deleted the Pot-T.V. videos last year.

  14. Pax on

    why would you want to join if they don’t want you? I deleted my facebook page when they fucked with you the frist time, and I’m NOT going back.

    Apparently they really are very anti-Cannabis now;

    “Barry Schnitt of Facebook has provided us with the following statement: “We do not allow people to promote illegal activities on Facebook. Section 3.4 of the SRR states: You will not use Facebook to do anything unlawful, misleading, malicious, or discriminatory.

    I’d add that people who use Facebook to co-ordinate illegal activities are fools. We will aid in the prosecution of people orchestrating illegal activities off of Facebook, such as in this case. We work hard to make Facebook a safe and secure environment, and we encourage users to report anything suspicious. We also include a specific tool for reporting drug-related content.”

    and yes even the right hates bush. lol
    I voted for Obama, thinking maybe he was going to do what he said he would. Surpize!
    Bush ,Cliton and Obama have smoked pot, they are assholes tring to ride both sides.
    And yes , we need to vote in someone that loves America, not a damn party.
    Thing is smoking weed crosses ALL party lines, and we all know that.
    So bottom line : don’t blame the right or left. it’s the white house no matter who is in it. they are afraid of their job.

  17. Dan-o on

    assuming of course your an American citizen. You Canadians have your own set of problems now…We had Bush, now you have Bush lite :) It’s like you didn’t even see the last 8 years ! lol

  18. Dan-o on

    Legalization is anathema to the core principles of the REAL right. Less government interference in our personal lives?! ring any bells? But you don’t hear anyone saying that anymore except that crazy sounding pipsqueek Ron Paul!
    It’s time to find and vote for an American instead of a ideaology.

    It’s fair to say the “left” don’t want people to blaze. a couple examples being how the NDP treated Kirk Tousaw & Dana Larsen as candidates, or how eNDProhibition has been blacklisted from conventions, how about the ever expanding drug war under Clinton & Obama, both have done their fair share of cannabis and cocaine, yet every day people are jailed for possession.

    That said, we need to eliminate this idea of left vs right, it’s a divide and conquer technique. We need to stand up for Liberty and fight against Tyranny, the Liberals, the NDP, and the Conservatives offer little to no hope, the Green Party does not appear to be a viable alternative, until we have proportional representation. Then many parties can make a difference, all views could be represented. The Green Party is not THE answer, far from it, but their pot policy is better than the rest…

    It’s what everyone uses. I hate facebook, but my friends use it, my family use it, if the goal is to communicate with people, facebook works very well.

  21. Pax on

    Peace

    I am ripped and this article tripped me the fuck out… they have so many peoples information.

    One of the *left* GREEN PARTY’S platforms has been legalization of cannabis!!!

    It’s the religious right -Cons- that want to prevent it.

    So don’t go trying to say the left doesn’t want people to be able to blaze.

  24. joe on

    I have always taken it as libertarians pot smokers like us are detested by the left and the right. To me it is proof that we libertarians are in our god given right as a human being to smoke pot. What we ingest into our own body is our choice. Because the left and the right who have power are authoritarian who wish to use the force of government to make society in their own images and to compel others to live in their approve way of life. We know that they truly hate us for the choices that we make by ingesting a plant that is a protein when eaten also is a medicine. They hate us so much They will even put us in jail break up family`s all in the name of law. And when the Supreme Court refuses to protect us from the left and the rights religious belief and laws that prove that when Governments appoint a judge that has their same views and beliefs is not a free Country but a dictator ship country just like Canada and the USA. And to say that Canadian soldiers are dying for freedom is an insult to all the solders and a disgrace to their families. The left and the right differences can never be overcome as long as they remain in power. The one thing that will open up people eyes will be a ballooning deficit in which the majority of tax payer will have to pick up the $$$ tab for their way of life because dictatorship will come at a cost. Because a Country cannot be free when ruled by religion dictatorship and under what religion are we being force to follow.

    I can’t believe you would stick with face book and make a new page with them. They dumped you once, so I can assume they will dump you again in the future.
    Why not another social site? Is face book all there is? Due to my age, I never caught on to twitter or face book thing.

  26. Dove on

    But there is the connection to the CIA so it is not too surprising really… jit’s ust surprising that they got all censorship *now*.
    I think the (unfortunate) powers-that-be -that are anti-cannabis- are desperately struggling to prevent it’s eventual re-legalization.

    Tough shit you fuckers! We will overcome/overgrow and CANNABIS will become legal and will survive long after your outdated values!!! =^P
