First of all welcome to all the new members here at BL. We've had a lot of new members join here lately, which is great, because it's wonderful to see people taking such an active role in harm reduction. But, with all these new members I just wanted to remind everyone how the forums here at BL are categorised as the material in OD is largely becoming quite diluted.
Other Drugs (OD) is designed for discussion of the queries regarding other drugs (ie not psychadelics or MDMA) not covered by the following two forums:
Basic Drug Discussion (BDD): as the name suggests, basic drug Qs. The next post will soon cover examples of material suited for BDD
Advanced Drug Discussion (ADD): chemistry-related and more science based course, discussion of novel compounds etc etc
Obviously OD covers a broad range of topics since it lumps in what is not included by BD and ADD. However, a lot of the material being posted can be found with very little effort on the original poster's part (OP). Questions such as:
* If I take suboxone 12 hours after taking heroin will I go into preciptated withdrawals?
* I have a 160mg oxycodone tolerance, will 50mg hydrocodone get me high?
* Does anyone notice the difference between brand names and generics?
All these questions have been answered countless times before, and it is for that reason that unless you cannot find the answer through searching, we will not be going over the same material ad nauseum. Of course if you have something new to add to a topic, then that is encouraged. But the repetitive, easy to research answers will not be answered just because people are too lazy to search themselves. Of course if you cant find an answer after searching, then ask away.
The mods are not trying to be a rule-Nazis here, but this needs to be done to maintain the high posting standards of OD, so over the next few weeks, I will be reminded everyone what belongs here and what doesnt. I will be putting clear notices on why something is moved or why a thread is closed. If you have an issue PM me directly, do not start a new thread!
Take care guys,

I'd like to add something on here. I want everyone who decides to give advice to other members to think about this really good. The advice we give can be dangerous. Please DO NOT give advice on topic's that are sensitive in nature if you don't know what your talking about. There have been times where members have made comments that could be extremely harmful. If your intent is to be destructive, we will not stand for it! Please, let's continue to provide the best harm reduction advice we can give. Thank you!
