I would listen to your "pharmacy guy". He is a medical expert we are a community of patients.

Why risk an unknown potential interaction between Harvoni and marijuana? Why risk interfering with an expensive medicine that will cure you of hep c in a matter of 8 to 12 weeks depending on your prescribed duration of treatment?

Most of us avoided taking anything either prescribed or OTC not entirely necessary for us to take during our treatment with Harvoni.
Some insurers won't allow patients who use illegal drugs to receive Harvoni. They won't approve your prescription.

Even if you live in a state with legal Marijuana it is still federally illegal.
