You allow drinking before and during events at your center. That's your perogative.... Personally, would not allow liquor on at any event that I host. Private property has with it a duty of care involving your guests safety.

Not allowing behavior with simulated firearms, the same as you would with actual firearms is a good place to start.

What's wrong with restricting the purchase of airsoft guns on this forum if you find someone is
#1, registered on this forum and purchasing guns here
#2, has been caught at one of your fields doing drugs.

I see no issue with trying to keep the sport clean.

And yes... THC will show up in a drug test. One part of my job is dealing with contaminated water and soil. I know that if the person who installs the well smokes and does not use gloves, the chemicals show up in the water analysis.
this issue is not the acts of the people involved.. this issue is does an on line forum have any place punishing behavior that did not happen on the forum?

The answer has to be no.

As soon as it takes up that mandate it then has a duty of care to administer the rules universally and completely otherwise it opens itself to claims of discrimination.

in short.. if you are going to accept the mantle of responsibility .. you wear it fully or not at all.

It is impossibe for this entity to serve as a fair and universal arbiter of player behavior and so it must stay out of it entirely.
