Here's what I don't get: Google says, in their own ToS, that you can't serve Google Ads on your illicit-drug- or paraphernalia-related website, but they serve drug-related ads to sites that aren't. It's hard to craft a logical, consistent line of reasoning that doesn't make Google appear to be massive hypocrites. Then again, since the computer makes all those decisions, there must be a consistent, irrational and illogical process behind it all.
Drug Rehab and the need for Drug Rehab is a hard learned lesson for most people. Realizing you are in need of Drug Rehab is the first step in treatment and is the most hardest step.
