Cannabis in Jordan is illegal.


In the mid-20th century, Jordan (then Trans-Jordan) was noted as a smuggling route, carrying hashish from Turkey, Iran, Lebanon, and Syria into Egypt.[1][2][3] In 1937 the total of all drugs seized in Jordan was just 6 kilograms of hashish. Sherif Nasser, uncle of the king of Jordan, was credibly implicated in cannabis smuggling.[4]
