Indonesian Council of Ulama Fatwa No. 53 of 2014 on Punishment for Drug Producers, Traffickers, Dealers, and Users

This fatwa declares the production, trafficking and usage of narcotics as haram (forbidden), punishable by hadd and/or ta'zir punishments. It distinguishes between the effect narcotics has on society with that of alcohol, noting the effect of the former to be far more grave. The fatwa also condones the death penalty for producing, trafficking or using narcotics, and opposes government intervention in penalties handed down for such misconduct.
