Dear Foundation people,
I have a request from the arbitration committee on fr.wikipedia. It is
(in French, I can translate bits if needed).
Basically, User:Zippo has put an picture of a cannabis flower in a quite
large size on his user page. User:Traroth started this RfAr on the basis
that in many countries, incitement to consumption of such drugs is
prohibited. I decided to put the image in a folding box while the
arbitration is going on.
The problem that we (the French ArbCom) are not competent for legal matters
and would really like some advice from the Foundation on this topic. The
question comes down to : "Is a user allowed to show a cannabis picture on
his user page ?"
