Taliban may legalize ‘cannabis processing


by The Frontier Post





KABUL (Tolo News): The Taliban have signed a deal with Australia’s Cpharm company that is willing to invest $450,000,000.00 in the cannabis processing industry in Afghanistan, a Taliban spokesperson tweeted. Qari Saeed Khosty, the spokesperson for the Interior Ministry has said that the deal has been finalized and its work may start within days.

The company will use process cannabis for medical purposes and will be provided with thousands of acres of land of cannabis, Khosty said. The cannabis production and processing will be legally contracted with Cpharm, he added. But, on the other hand, Cpharma, an Australian medical consulting firm rejects any kind of involvement in the cannabis deal with the Taliban, the company said in a press release.

We have become aware overnight of numerous media articles stating that Cpharm in Australia has been involved in a deal with the Taliban to be involved in the supply of cannabis in a cream. We have been contacted today by numerous media outlets around the world regarding this.Cpharma said in a statement.

The company further added that they do not manufacture or supply anything. We provide a medical advice service to the pharmaceutical industry within Australia. We have no products on the ARTG. We have no connection with cannabis or the Taliban. We have no idea where the Taliban media release has come from and want to assure everyone that it should not be connected to Cpharm Pty Ltd Australia. The company added in a media advisory statement.

This comes as the Taliban had earlier committed to crack down on cannabis and opium processing in Afghanistan and will not allow formers to get engaged in the drug production business.

Afghanistan is currently going through an economic and humanitarian crisis with over 95% population below the poverty line for months now and this is the first initiative announced by the Taliban, however, it was widely criticized by the Afghan social media users. The Taliban took power in Afghanistan by force on August 15, 2021, despite the international partners’ urges to return to power through a political settlement which was negotiated for months in Doha, Qatar with the delegation both from the Taliban and the Afghan government sides.

How would Islamic countries turn a clearly haram product like cannabis into halal? It's a can of worms for Islamic countries in dealing with it.

Also "Laundaa prostitution ". Well why not follow the Netherlands model fully?
They have cannabis legalised and so is prostitution.
Both are great sources of income for the country?
Yes and possible.

I found the following two articles interesting:

Dutch Earn EU400 million annually through cannabis sales.
The Netherlands wants sex workers to charge a 19% sales tax per transaction.

The US has already legalized marijuana in many states. Sports gambling was the next big vice to be legalized by the states. I think prostitution might be the next big thing.

People are realizing that the war on vice is a losing battle where billions are spent with very little in return. Better to legalize it, regulate it, and tax it.

This is easy for the West to accomplish but extremely difficult for Islamic countries.

Drugs for medical use aren’t haram in Islam. If they were you would probably be dead right now.
When is Pakistan going to catch up
We have made hemp farming legal which is a step in the right direction
But even for that our uneducated population can’t tell the difference between hemp and weed and thinks you can get high off hemp when hemp is purely for medical uses or for fiber to make clothes or building materials.

Very good step. They should grow medical opium and supply it to medical companies to use in medicines as well since Afghanistan already produces a lot of opium but uses it mostly for haram purposes

If Californian ultra liberal LGBTQ+ can, so do the ultra conservative Taliban….

If you keep on traveling toward the West you’ll end up being in the East….

Nothing can give “high”s to the White folks like the Afgan stuffs! And, the White folks need to continuously live in a “Adventure” filled Paradise of Shaddad!!! And, they need to make their nights short filled with “sweet dreams”…,

It is a good decision by he Taliban.In addition to growing, processing laboratory also needs to be regulated as different concentrations are needed for different diseases and purposes. Pakistan has also started greenhouse pilot project of Hemp.

Another aspect is that Afghan farmers who are cultivating Poppy which is processed in to Heroin will switch over to Cannabis as it will also provide good returns. USA and the West will be the ultimate beneficiaries as Heroin supply would dry up. Therefore US Department of Agriculture (USDA) should be involved in technology transfer of growing and processing to Afghan farmers and businessmen.

Well, the Taliban has a long experience after all in forcing Afghan farmers to grow opium and then the Taliban would sell the opium to the CIA.

Chinese love Opium from the subcontinent. They have been the biggest consumers of opium since 1800s. Chinese will trade their US dollars for Afghan Opium.
I suggest you learn more about China.


If you think it's easy to sell drugs in China. I suggest you try it yourself. You don't have to take too much. 50 grams of heroin is enough for you to get a satisfactory answer.

From posts on other threads and this one. Looks like you start typing from just reading the headline of the thread and not reading the whole article.

It clearly mentions that the cannabis will be used for medicinal purposes. Which is halal.

You can take your low iq quotient and hatred of Afghans somewhere else.

All is Halal.

Need a source on that our local Indian communist...

We all know you love to jump on any chance at posting bs and lies about the Taliban. So provide some source when you make up claims like that or keep your hands off the keyboard like a good little boi. :coffee:


You need to worry more about the cow piss drinking, dung bathing Sanghis which might show up on your doorstep and strip you of your nationality and manhood. :lol:

Of course.

Good job on proving me right. Best you can do is make cheap remarks here and there. :lol:


The hate/frustration/jealousy of the Taliban is quite evident. Where did they hurt you? :azn:
