Why does Amazon have Cannabis growing guides/books available?
Surely Amazon has ethical values?
Drugs are have no place in modern society and books like these only lead people into crime.

Amazon even sells books about murder.
That's completely irresponsible too!

What a load of guff. It's not for Amazon.com to be censor. For a start, Amazon.com is an international mail-order retailer and laws vary in different countries and even in states, counties and other jurisdictions within nations. Anyway, I think the inalienable rights to express one's self and to pursue knowledge just about cover it.

I can understand your point of view but isn't that taking things a bit too far?

In fact in most countries and in the USA Amazon could be charged with possessing drug Paraphernalia ie items used in the process of using illegal substances this would not be covered in the USA by 1st amendment rights as 1st amendment does not cover items written or published with the purpose of aiding and abetting in the commission of crime. While in most countries in Western Europe it is not illegal to write or own books on how to grow cannabis, it is Illegal to use the information in those books to grow cannabis. As for the argument on censorship already exists whether one agrees with it or not it's a fact of life in most countries including the UK and USA. On purely moral grounds Amazon should make certain that the items it sells are not solely designed for use in the commission of crimes , the use of Cannabis in many countries is Illegal there for the promotion of techniques for growing it can only in 99% of cases lead to illegal activity. As we as world society are suffering from an epidemic of crime resulting from the unlawful sales of drugs surely Amazon as a global trader has a responsibility as part of the global society to act responsibly by not selling books that encourage such activity, it would be nice to see a global corporation take the moral high ground. by doing so they may just save one person from being mugged or murdered, crimes which are all to common to day and all to often related to the illegal use/sales of or production of narcotics.
