Indirectly supporting Cannabis growth

 Assalamualaikum

I am an HVAC product engineer working for a company which makes Big HVAC units. These units are used to control temperature and humidity of a room/space or a building .Can be used in schools, hospitals, gyms, indoor pools, indoor agriculture, etc. With recent legalization of Cannabis my company is developing HVAC unit which is more suitable for indoor pools and  indoor agriculture in general ( but main customer is cannabis industry). All this does is it maintains required temperature and humidity inside a room or building. Also this unit is used in areas where there is a lot of humidity and scarcity of fresh water (like Caribbean island). This HVAC unit removes moisture from building and converts it into drinking water and maintains desired room temperature.

Our company makes other products which serves different areas and most of the profit comes from non-cannabis customers (80%).

Since cannabis is getting legalized for recreation purpose, we are getting lot of demand from this industry and our company is specifically focusing on this. Is it permissible for me to still work at this company ?

I apologize for my poor writing skills. If this is not clear I can explain it to you over the phone .Please can you guide me through this situation.

Jazakallah Khair

الجواب وباللہ التوفیق

It is permissible to have job at this company.
