Should be C
in A, the directive cannot be to prohibit the sale of the drug, the directive should forbid the sale of the drug.

This is purely speculation... Something about "be prohibited from" that just doesn't sound right. Perhaps "be prohibited" should be parallel with "banned?" At the end I picked C like most of you here, just because it sounds short and sweet.
