The Google Ads policy on Drugs and Drug Paraphernalia will change around late January. The policy is changing to disallow herbal drugs, such as salvia and magic mushrooms, and related paraphernalia as unacceptable products instead of restricted products. This change will affect all countries. We made this decision for ensuring positive user experience. We'll send notifications to affected advertisers. After the new policy goes into effect, the policy description will be updated to reflect this change.
