II. Images

  • Images that accompany posts MUST be appropriate, in focus and appealing to women.
  • We don’t allow posts that feature cannabis flower or smoking cannabis.
  • Images with posts get more engagement! 

III. Zero Tolerance Policy

NO hateful, demeaning or discriminatory posts or comments. If you see this type of content please notify admin immediately so the offender can be dealt with. We must work together to protect the community from harm.

We do not tolerate attacking one another over disagreements, judging the choices of others or smearing people. We understand that sometimes we are wronged by others and have a desire to prevent others from the same fate. Unfortunately, we are not a court of law and are not capable of evaluating evidence so these conversations must be had elsewhere. Anything that resembles this kind of behavior will be removed. ***Please note: This group is run at the discretion of the admins and they are free to approve posts that fall outside of these guidelines if they choose.

If you’ve followed the above guidelines and still don’t see your post being approved it may be a conversation we’ve covered before. Please use the SEARCH function on the group page that allows you to use keywords to find previous posts. For instance, “payment processors” “female growers”.
