Marijuana users will now face a controversial decision to make. Either walk away from the marijuana, or forfeit their second amendment rights.
While Pennsylvania is working out the details on their medical marijuana program, a case in the federal courts, earlier this week in California, ruled that banning a marijuana user from buying a gun is not a violation of their 2nd amendment right.
“[Marijuana] is a Schedule I drug,” said Justin McShane, a lead program attorney for U.S. Law Shield. “[It’s] controlled by the DEA federally. Just because a state allows for medicinal or even recreation use of marijuana, that doesn’t change that.”
So, if you are thinking of applying for a medical marijuana license BUT you enjoy your right to carry a gun, then you may want to reconsider.
