> the potential of a criminal record is real and the chance that a medication that may or may not help (or harm) you is also real. If one is willing to take that risk, that is fine

I guess that would be my position, caveat emptor. People can decide for themselves what risks they're willing to take.

> but Sal is saying to people, "You can order from overseas without a prescription, I did." These people may not realize the potential consequences of their actions until it is too late.

But the more informed their decisions are, the better. So I think my preference would be to continue to allow discussion of self-medication, but also to encourage continued education regarding the potential consequences.

Maybe it would help if I added something to the FAQ? Would anyone like to suggest pros and cons to include?
