Miscellaneous - Medical Cannabis
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: If I am living in a state where medical cannabis is legal, and a doctor recommends it, does Jewish law prevent me from smoking it?
Answer: Jewish Law requires one to preserve his health and not do anything that could endanger it. I am not a doctor and can not give you medical advise, but if reliable medical research has determined that smoking cannabis will not harm your health it is not forbidden.
