As we start to figure out the scope of the site, I wonder if we can use the following question as a case study. The question is: How to get illegal substances for independent open study? My view is that this is not about open science per se but rather about the legal issue of acquiring a particular material for research and thus off-topic for this site (i.e., it is either just about science and not open science specifically, or it is about laws related to research by individuals unaffiliated with a research institution). What does the community think?
