One of my students, her mother is a pharmacist and currently sells marijuana for medicinal purposes in her pharmacy. She would like to know if marijuana becomes legalized in the future in this country, would it be permissible for her to grow it herself and sell it in her pharmacy. She is concerned about the fact that it will be as though she is selling an intoxicant to people who do not need it for medicinal purposes.
Wa Alaikum Assalaam,
الجواب و بالله التوفيق
Marijuana is totally haram, and even if it is legalized in this country, it will still be haram. Hence, it will not be permissible for her to grow it or sell it in her pharmacy.
And Allah Knows Best.
