This goes back to the fact that we didn't get to see every moment of their friendship. She did tell him that was Avery and Mulciber did was evil. And it seems very likely that they used some Dark Magic on Mary because why else would she describe it as evil. So I don't think she was ok with it.

We'll go back to that boyfriend I had that was getting deeper and deeper into drugs. I was not ok with it and kept after him to give it up. I felt like I was the only decent person he knew, but eventually I had to give it since it threatened to pull me in.

JKR told us that Lily might have become romantically interested in Snape had he not been involved with the Dark Arts. I would think that would be enough to tell us that Lily wasn't ok with Snape's involvement with the Dark Arts.
