Brief Answer:
Vermox is safe to take

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thank you for asking HCM

I have gone through your query. Vermox (mebendazole) is safe to take and there is no known drug interaction with marijuana for this. Using albendazole is more easier than mebendazole which is very effective in a single dose of 400 mg alone.
So you can take mebendazole (vermox) or albendazole.

Let me know if anything not clear.
I am happy to help you.
Thanks.

Then you can take today.

Thank you for your follow up.

A beer 4 hours before won't be a problem. But avoid taking beer or alcohol again today and tomorrow. There are no major interactions but if taken alcohol with vermox there will be dizziness.

Let me know if anything not clear.
