I have found in my personal experience that you will likely do more harm to your friendship than help to your friend, in this case. No matter how good a friend you think B is, you should not intervene unless you think she is in some kind of danger. It is more likely B will believe whatever C says anyway - because people in love tend to do that in my ...

I'm a very direct person myself, so this might be a bit harsh, but it has yet to fail (for me or my friends if they apply this advise): In my experience, these kinda of problems tend to "hover around" until you swat them down.

(NOTE: I found ...

I strongly disagree with the accepted answer. I have a few friends who tend to get involved with "bad" people. This is how I handle it. If they are not together: I address my concerns. In your case I would have said something like: Dear B, from my perspective it seems like getting together with C might not be a good idea. I think this because he ...

I think it is very important to know what exactly is your girlfriend's reason for being against 'hard' drugs. If she is personally against drugs that cause any loss of control over mental state, even if temporarily, then you will need to understand that it is very hard to justify taking such drugs even once. Have you considered that she may have already made ...
