Isn't that why this website was created in the first place?

No, it was created to discuss ideas and news in a way that's dense with quality. Not for people to hawk their often-illegal wares that could get us shut down.

Oh, you must be thinking of a different Saidit page. Because GreyMarket doesn't sell illegal wares. Oops.

There's a reason it's not called WhiteMarket

not trying to argue pedantry, although you're entirely right in that regard. Thanks, was interesting to read.

But look at the actual sub yourself - that shit really doesn't apply to what's going on. Everyone operates under the mask of "not for human consumption" - but we have nothing but vendors, reviews, and people asking for specific drugs/information. The legality of analogues in general is somewhat skewed (although it can be specific depending on the state), so it's kind of like playing with fire. All it takes if for the FDA or DEA to take notice and then saidit goes to shit

yea, i have looked at the sub here and there, cause everyone is uncertain, who's legit or not. cause the sub is new, and theres new people, things take awhile to work themselves out and sorted.

the greymarket sub mods couldve eventually worked out who was who, and maybe have a list of known scammers / blackmarket dealers.

I think the problem is regarding the classification of "legitimate" dealers. Like it or not - they are still operating in a very sketchy area of the law. Scamming or not; these dealers operate under a "not for human consumption" defense.

I'm sure you're aware of some US case law (just an assumption but you seem educated enough lmao) - and that really doesn't hold up if the feds want you to go down. The admins are right - allowing this type of content to continue can inadvertently harm them in the future.

If they 100% adhered to that, then there wouldn't be a problem. But it's literally impossible to keep to that because every region has different drug laws that are always changing, so you kind of have to take people's word on it, it seems. Which leads to a lot of abuse that is more blackmarket claiming to be greymarket. At least that's what I seem to be seeing when I look at that sub.

[–]wellwellwell 2 insightful - 2 fun2 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

That's basically what it is. We operate under the whole "not for human consumption" idea, but anyone who looks at that sub for more than 5 minutes will recognize that's clearly not the case. Despite being analogues, the shit that goes on there is definitely illegal and prosecutable.

Yes exactly. I ignored it for a long time but when I started reading it recently it became apparent what is going on much of the time.

And a reason it's not called BlackMarket
