Title: You can have a medical marijuana card or a gun, not both
Post by: mouse on July 21, 2017, 11:31:38 pm
So this is the plan.

The Arkansas Department of Health is warning would-be applicants for medical marijuana cards that they can have the card or the ability to buy a gun, but not both.
This warning came as Texarkana’s board of directors set forth rules and costs for establishing medical marijuana dispensaries.
According to NWA, the Ark. Dept. of Health is stressing that an individual cannot have “a medical marijuana card and legally own a gun because pot is still illegal on the federal level.” In other words, a resident licensed to legally purchase marijuana for medical purposes in Arkansas would still have to answer in the affirmative when asked about unlawful use of marijuana during a background check for firearms purchases.

Yeah, been this way for a long time everywhere. Which is why nobody in their right mind asks for "permission."

Yep, this occurred to me when I heard that "medical marijuana" might be coming to my state: the federal prohibition might not be enforced, but the BATFE sure as hell would be happy to arrest any gun owner who makes themselves a "prohibited person" by actually using the stuff...

So far in my state it's still moot, b/c the "medical marijuana" is only available if you're terminal or have spinal damage visible on an X-Ray.
