Asalamualaikum.

What does the Koran/Hadith say about drug addiction?

Is smoking/taking drugs (but not alcohol) okay?

Wa alaikumu as-salam

The Prophet (pbuh) said that everything which intoxicates is haram, so drugs are definately out of the question because they are just like khamr, often even worse. There is a difference of opinion over the issue of smoking tobacco and hookah. It is considered either haram or makruh (disliked).
