Is Cannabis a medicine or a drug. Can Sikhs start using it. 

Depends on what you get and how its consumed,  cannabis oil is known as a medical drug, smoking/eating the leaves is known as a drug but even that isn't the case in some places such as certain states in the US.

 

I think Sikhs should use the oil if necessary it helps with pains, such as back and is similar to taking ibuprofen etc. We should not smoke or eat the leaves as that gets you high.

Assuming u meant THC, that is a psychoactive compound used to get high....

Marijuana is used because of its primary active ingredient, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), produces a relaxed state and may heighten the senses.

    • Tbh, even "our own" can't be trusted. I personally stopped giving a damn what other people thought a long time ago, especially when it comes to rishta/marriage. 
    • In ultimate truth time is an illusion (Akal). All there is, is present the now. God created itself in many forms to create contrast ( limiting itself in forms)
    • There is a massive difference between the Sikh experience in the UK vs the US. The UK is a much better place to be a Sikh. The biggest difference-maker is population density. According to the 2011 census, there were (at the time) about 432,000 Sikhs in the UK. Accounting for some population growth and uncounted people (such as illegal immigrants), there are probably at least 500,000 Sikhs in the UK today. Now take into consideration that the UK has a population of about 67 million crammed into a relatively small island. And also consider that most of the Sikhs live in certain parts of the UK that have relatively large Sikh populations (e.g. West London, Birmingham area, etc.). There are not official figures on Sikhs in the US, but based on data about people from and Indian background and Punjab-speaking background, 250,000 is probably a very conservative upper bound on the US Sikh population. And then consider that the US is a massive country and has a population of about 330 million. As a consequence, Sikhs are much less visible and much less powerful (as a community) in the US than they are in the UK. In the UK, I feel like most people have an awareness of who Sikhs are. When I have been in the UK, it is a bit of a relief to not feel like I have to constantly point out that I'm not an Arab or a Muslim. In the US, nobody had a clue what a Sikh was when I was growing up. It is getting a bit better now, but it's still not great.   Anyway, aside from how Sikhs are viewed by the general population, I think the population density of Sikhs is most important for the Sikh community itself. It makes for a greater support system for more religiously inclined Sikhs. Further, the critical mass enables people who don't come from religious families to nevertheless gain exposure to Sikhi and get into it as they grow older. That's probably why examples of monay who become Singhs are much more frequent in the UK than in the US.    
    • Just found he is Muslim. And he sang the praise of the Khalsa..... amazing. 
    • Maybe worth letting some of them join and see what they post as could be people interested in Sikhi from Hindu backgrounds.
