Default Are you allowed to enter the chat room if...

... you're on medical marijuana?
... on a prescribed medication that makes you loopy and annoying?
... waiting for a druggy sleep med to kick in?
... on a medication that is sold as a med here but seen as a drug in USA?

Just wondering.

I think the point of that rule is that people not be intoxicated while in chat because their behavior becomes triggering to others in chat and because they can be hard to manage in chat, like saying or bringing up inappropriate topics. People frequently are in chat while waiting for their meds to kick in, so I don't think that's a problem.

From what I've seen, it's mostly not wanting people to discuss illegal drug usage or drinking because there are people recovering from addiction in chat, so it's a way to be sensitive to them?

In the end it's really about your behavior in chat. I think as long as you aren't doing anything inappropriate then no one really cares what meds you are using.

Seesaw hit it on the head -- don't get bogged down in specifics. As long as you're acting appropriately and respectfully toward your fellow members while in chat, I don't really care what medication or substance you may be on.

It's when people start acting inappropriately, aggressively, or in a manner consistent with drunkenness that we are looking for members to avoid. If you're in such a state, then it's not a good time to be in the chatrooms.

or, as George Carlin used to say: "if you have to ask, i win".

actually, the worst behaviors i've seen were "au naturale".
