Q: Is Marijuana Haram ? 

A: Yes. 

Q: Haram, according to every marjaa' 

A: Yes. [Mod Note: Excessively long quote was shortened in length.]

Thanks for this post, I once spoke to someone regarding this and they were saying weed should be halal because it's just a plant. But then I was skeptical because I personally know people that have used it and they become delusional and start imagining really weird things after.

 There are many OTC medications that offer benefits for this condition and they are not haram. There are also prescription medications, other than Marijuana. 

Like I said above, most physicians would agree that marijuana has little to no therapeutic value, except for very specific conditions. Menstrual cramps is not one of those conditions.

I once saw a list of 60+ different scientific articles based on the effect marijuana has on cancer management. Wouldn't this purpose be acceptable? Personally I don't smoke it but if it works in that way wouldn't this be something scholars should discuss? If I can find it again, I'll post it.

An interesting article about Jesus and cannabis

Jesus was almost certainly a cannabis user and an early proponent of the medicinal properties of the drug, according to a study of scriptural texts published this month. The study suggests that Jesus and his disciples used the drug to carry out miraculous healings.

The anointing oil used by Jesus and his disciples contained an ingredient called kaneh-bosem which has since been identified as cannabis extract, according to an article by Chris Bennett in the drugs magazine, High Times, entitled Was Jesus a Stoner? The incense used by Jesus in ceremonies also contained a cannabis extract, suggests Mr Bennett, who quotes scholars to back his claims.

It continues here:

I do not smoke marijuana, but I have a friend who does. Is it haram to sit with him when he does? Should I exit the room until he is finished? 

Would love to hear your input.

Eventually, you will become like your friend or your friend will become like you. guard yourself and don't let peer pressure lead you to haram. maybe even distance yourself.

Intoxicants are haram. CBD is not intoxicant. THC is.

I believe if Marijuana can go under the same category as morphine or codeine in terms of medical use. If your doctor prescribes it as a pain killer, or sleeping aid, or something similar then it might be Halal. Not sure though, but it seems logical that it goes under the same category as other medicines that can be abused as intoxicants. 

But should definitely be double checked with your respective marja.
