    We regret to inform you that due to a disagreement with our server hosting company, the forum is closed until further notice. We are working on a solution, but unfortunately the forum will not be up and running in the near future. We are very sorry for this inconvenience and apologise to all forum members for the lack of communication over the new year period as a result of this problem. We realise how important this forum is to the members and therefore this issue is also very hard on the EDIT staff.

    They haven’t had much luck lately. The MHRA have been seriously on their back recently as they are one of the biggest head shops. They scared them into stopping stocking salvia and I’m sure they’ve been on it with other stuff as well.

    Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency. EDITs problem was that all the legal highs etc are to be sold as not for human consumption etc otherwise they are illegal, as they become classed as unlicensed medicines, but they had a forum attached full of people talking of their experiences etc.

    Its difficult to claim they are “not for sale to anyone intending to use the substances for illicit purposes” when you then have 3,000 people givin it large about the plants they grew with seeds from there and the best way to take all the drugs.

    Anyway a month or so ago we got a letter saying that the MHRA had contacted them asking them to remove salvia from their site as it was illegal to be sold for human consumption and I’m assuming this host problem will be their doing as well.

    Its a stupid set of laws really. You can sell someone something but its illegal to tell them how to safely take it.:you_crazy

    TBH, its well deserved imo.They’ve been really fucking people about with their shipping recently.

    I went to place an order mid december & their minimum shipping had suddenly gone up to £10. This is for 100g or something silly.

    I’m sure it used to be under a fiver for next day.

    Either way thers better headhshops out there imo.

    When you visit the old EDIT forum address, it redirects to hempire.co.uk

    Is the EDIT community still alive? :O

    I doubt it as such a “community” will disperse as soon as the drugs disappear or feds start sniffing around and in any case they are not able to keep the forum free from spammers.

    These forums were only really set up by vendors etc to try and virally market mephedrone etc when it was legal and are now irrelevant when there are sites like this and bluelight which give much more impartial advice about drugs, and even here drugs are just a small aspect of a wider community forum.

    wasnt EDIT Everyonedoesit.com which was a head shop that sold/sells weed equipment mainly (not a legal high/drone vendor really). Sure I remember this from when I was younger but might be wrong.

    Used to have an active forum but as their items were sold as not intended for illegal drug use it rather contradicted itself given what people were discussing.

    I always thought EDIT did both and TBH head shops and RC vendors are or were to some extent interchangeable as shown by evidence on this forum.

    Yeah would have thought they sold the old “herbal highs” dunno if they got into the “legal RC highs”. Ah those were the days, herbal high stall ‘speed’ at a festival. Made you shit orange and fell asleep after double dosing. Quality stuff.

    They sold spice (regular, gold and diamond) before its was common knowlage there was synthetic cannabinoids in it, pills that had bzp in them (all pre ban of course) salvia, ethobotnicals and the regular herbal shit that doesnt do much or has weird side effects. It was all about the smoking blends and when meph came along that was discussed extensively (it was never sold directly on the site.) Theyre still a good headshop for general weed stuff though. Stuff did get organised via pm and the most of the mods were dodgy as hell, but mostly friendly community. Not too dissimilar topics from here (maybe less music related ones) but far more trolling. Good times. Sad to see it gone.

    It’s an archive of the old forum which is nice to see but there’s some fairly recent posts as well. Seems pretty dead though.
