I am wondering what is appropriate when it comes to asking how to commit crimes on AskMe. The FAQ says this
"Common reasons for thread removal are chatfilter questions, open-ended hypothetical questions, rants posing as questions, questions asking how to do things that are illegal or borderline illegal.."
However, I came across this post
today. The poster is asking how best to manufacture THC laced food to sell to others. This is clearly not for medicinal use and is seriously criminal in most places.
When I pointed the criminal nature of this question out my comment was deleted, while other commenters go into detail on, basically, how best to illegally manufacture and sell drugs.

"...To us, it's the difference between "what could happen if I did X?" and "Help me break the law by doing X"..."
To me, this Weed Party post is pretty clearly, "Help me break the law," and not about possible outcomes. Am I crazy here?
