Tue Dec 29 2009 "Cannabis Culture the Magazine of Marijuana and Hemp" Removed from Facebook
Facebook Removes Cannabis Culture Page and a Marijuana Proponent's Account For reasons unknown, Cannabis Culture Magazine's Facebook page has been disabled by the popular social networking site. The page, which had over 25,000 fans, disappeared on December 23, 2009.

Shortly afterward, administrators of the page received an email notification stating that the page violated Facebook's terms of use. Cannabis Culture editors contacted Facebook and hope to have the page reinstated soon. They are still trying to figure out how the page violated Facebook's terms, and are hopeful that Facebook does not consider discussion of cannabis to be "obscene."

According to Cheryl Shuman, Executive Director of Beverly Hills NORML 90210, her Facebook account was also removed on December 23, 2009. Shuman reports that, "Within 24 hours of me updating my posts to include that I'm beginning a national media campaign for Beverly Hills NORML, my account was just pulled!"
