Quote:Federal firearms regulators are telling gun shops it’s illegal for someone who uses marijuana to own or buy guns or ammunition, regardless of whether states have passed laws allowing patients to use the drug for medicinal purposes.

In an open letter to all federal firearms licensees posted last week, Arthur Herbert, the assistant director of enforcement programs and services for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said his office has received “a number of inquiries” about whether medical marijuana patients can own or buy guns and ammo in medical-marijuana states.

Federal law says marijuana is classified as a Schedule 1 drug similar to heroin, in spite of 16 states, including California,having passed making the drug legal for medical use. The federal government doesn’t recognize marijuana as a medicine, Herbert says.

“Therefore anyone who uses or is addicted to marijuana, 37.gif regardless of whether his or her state has passed legislation authorizing marijuana use for medicinal purposes, is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance and is prohibited by federal law from possessing firearms or ammunition,” Herbert writes.

Seems like public officials should be educated enough not to be saying this kind of bullshit. It's an embarrassment to the people they are supposedly serving.
Mr. Herbert, ignorance can be cured, google may be your first step Sir. rofl.gif

How are they gonna know if you smoke? Is a drug screen required now? Who is gonna pay for it? Is the wait time foe the test results part of the already mandatory wait time or do you have to get approved and then take the piss test? Will there be random drug testing of all registered gun owners to make sure none of them are smoking? Why not just buy your guns from individuals? What about alcoholic gun owners?


So many question, so few answers...
