Apparently it didn't help MegaUpload to have their servers outside
the US :-( but I would consult an attorney on this.

In any case -- "High Times" has been publishing a print magazine
about marijuana since 1974 and has an online presence; take a look
at their legal disclaimer.

Data only, not advice - in today's politico-regulatory climate, everything
seems to be a bit of a crap shoot. And the rules could change at any
time. (Maybe the site should include a section about using Tor and/or
other privacy practices.)

Hey, the NSA already knows if you've been bad or good, so... :-)
