Hello everyone! Hope we’re all keeping well in these times!

i wanted to put to you  the question, is it risky to post plant pics on Instagram?

If the account is anonymous can/will the police  search for information on this platform and can they use it to proceed? 

Thankyou for any help in advance!

@southwestsmoker Fair question. IG is filled with cannabis personalities and content. But... I think it safe to assume that there are law enforcement people out there hell-bent to stop us from growing our own medicine.  That said, stick to the Percy rules and if you are in an illegal location, then don't give up ANY identifying info. This is especially true of scrubbing your location meta data from your photos before posting.  You could also use a VPN, and even a TOR browser if you are really concerned. More importantly, play a role in advocating for legalization by contacting your representatives to lobby for change.  It is up to all of us. Hope that helps.  #overgrowthegovernment

@southwestsmoker I am in an illegal state and I have an active Instagram account. I always do like Sparky said, scrub my photos completely before posting them, and always look very carefully at the background for anything that can be identified, like reflections, pets, landscapes, mail labels, and others. I think it’s safe but follow your gut instinct.
