Can I patent something that is used for an illegal purpose?

Can I patent something that is used for an illegal purpose? | patentes | Scoop.it
This question was posed to me during a recent interview. Is it possible to patent something that is used for an illegal purpose or is used with an illegal substance, or is there a prohibition against such patents?
Teresa Lopez Alvarez-Ossorio's insight:

From my point of view, I think it should be forbidden to patent something illegal. On the other hand, has the time to patent something, bodies or persons involved in this should study carefully the request for ones not trying to patent something illegal under a legal aspect.

Teresa Lopez Alvarez-Ossorio's insight:

Patents can be used illegally because through them you can block or prevent competition, patent and right claiming this is what these companies are doing.
