  1. Ask yourself, who benefits from this ? First, Big Government because an unarmed populace can't fight back tyranny. Secondly, Big Pharmaceutical Companies because why try cannabis when "WE" already have what you need, despite the thousands of people who have died because of their drugs. Someone please explain to me how anyone can consider a pothead as dangerous ? I mean, most people I know that smoke weed just want to eat and go to sleep.

  2. There is a clause under 27 CFR as 478.1 , which prohibits addicts and drug users from owning a firearm, that says ; " and any person who is a current user of a controlled substance IN A MANNER OTHER THAN AS PRESCRIBED BY A LICENSED PHYSICIAN. . . " . My question is, if a doctor prescribes medicinal marijuana to you then how can they clump you in with addicts and drug abusers who shouldn't own a firearm ? Next they will tell you that because you broke your leg and we have to prescribe you some pain meds, so you have to turn your gun in at the pharmacy when you pick up your drugs.

  3. Marijuana was made illegal because of financial and political reasons. It gave control political and financial to certain people for their own gain. It has nothing to do with marijuana being dangerous. We need to start telling the injustice of this by our government

  4. our government are fucking criminals. i was DUPED into this shit because i have a son who is desperately in need of medical marijuana and i got him a card and i got a card too so
    i could go get his medicine. it was not explained to me during the process of getting these cards that i would have to give up firearms (if i had any, which i dont anymore). from personal
    experience….. weed does not alter the mind in any negative way other than making a person paranoid for a few minutes that the police is gonna bust in the door and slaughter everyone.
    i am so sick of the gov taking our freedoms in a country build on freedom. i am so sick of watching the gov ruin countries around the world for resources and god knows what else. america the enslaved and the home of the brainwashed. DEAR GOV…..YOU DONT FUCK WITH THE 2ND AMENDMENT! YOU ARE CHARGED WITH UPHOLDING THE FOUNDING LAWS….NOT TAKING THEM
    AWAY FOR CORRUPT REASONS! Our gov needs a HARD RESET and the ban hammer thrown at those who would fuck us out of our rights. if i only had the resources the leave america i would.
    KEEP YOUR GODDAM WEED!

  5. They offered me 5 years no parole because I own legal guns with receipts and had legal marijuana with a medical card. Just because they were both together in my home I was arrested and charged with several felonies. I have court coming up soon, this is just ridiculous

  6. It is a shame but the laaws can make a perfectly honest person a criminal so basically they make good people buy unregistered guns for their own protection both literally and legally then if you want weed just get it from the best dealer around-that really makes sense

  7. As an recently disgruntled 30 year NRA endowment member, and as someone who personally knows veterans with PTSD and MS patients who have had their 2nd Amendment rights denied, this issue drives me nuts.. The NRA, who's motto is "freedom first", has been completely silent on this issue, which I consider a de facto endorsement of the marijuana/gun policy.. The Trump administration, which won formerly blue states in part because of a strong pro 2nd Amendment platform, both support this anti-gun Obama instigated DOJ policy.. The "public safety" nature of this issue is nothing but a red herring, and it's used as an excuse to deny an unalienable natural right to American citizens that "shall not be infringed".. The main reason for this is so that big pharmaceutical lobbies can continue to push their products without competitive alternative medications for chronic pain, PTSD, etc.. It's no more complicated than that!.. The current Washington pseudo outrage over the opioid epidemic, while simultaneously refusing to legalize medical marijuana, is the epitome of political hypocrisy.. It is also important to note here that the 2nd Amendment is the ONLY right in the Bill of Rights that can be summarily denied without due process in 2017.. As of now, the Trump Administration is on the record for having sided with the insanely ant-gun 9th Circuit Court.. And unless something gives, the Administration will apparently be soliciting the SCOTUS with their "public safety" nonsense, which I'm sure Justices Sotomayor, Ginsburg, Stevens, and Kagen will predictably rule in favor of.. Hopefully though, Thomas, Gorsuch, Alito, Kennedy, and Roberts, will see past this politically cash inspired charade and right this wrong once and for all.. A proper Court ruling will NOT legalize marijuana at the federal level, as this is still arguably a legislative issue, however, the SCOTUS needs to immediately halt the unconstitutional denial of a natural right, posthaste!..

  8. What about people on opiates, when abused I have seen some crazy violence just to obtain the drug. MMJ has a very calming effect. I just don't see this being a problem unless drug dealers are involved. It is quite a process to get MMJ as well as the state of Fl is not allowing you to smoke. It is truly medication and the people that do get it need it. Don't think being very ill and use of MMJ is going to cause an epidemic of randomly sick people start running around shooting. They aren't high or confused. Low THC. Drinking and guns don't mix, I have been a vovc that involved alcohol and a gun. I was not drinking nor did I have the gun. Just leave it at that.

  9. They can not and would easily lose in supreme Court because there is no way for them to say that you are intoxicated without failing a DUI test so NO THEY CAN NOT ARREST YOU FOR FUTURE CRIME ITS EASY THEY HAVE AN INEBRIATION TEST SO IF YOUR FOCUS IS OFF ( YOU COULD HAVE THESE SYMPTOMS FROM OTHER THINGS OR VARIOUS DRUGS) IF YOU CANT CONTROL YOUR MOTOR SKILLS AND ARE DIZZY (CANT WALK ON STRAIGHT LINE) EYES BECOME LAZY AND YOU ARE IN PUBLIC ZONE THAN MAYBE THEY COULD SAY YOU WERE DANGEROUS BUT THEY CANNOT ( WITHOUT PULLING SOMETHING ILLEGAL) PUT YOU IN JAIL WOTHOUT FIRDT PROVING BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT THAT YOU WERE INTOXICATED BUT NOT THAT YOU WERE JUST INTOXICATED BUT YOU HAD THAT GUN AT THAT MOMENT OF ARREST IN POSESSION BUT NOT JUST IN POSESSION BUT LEGALLY THE Y WOULD HAVE TO SHOW THAT YOU HAD INTENT LEGALLY THEY CAN NOT DO SHIT WITHOUT MOTIVE OR INTENT ESPECIALLY SINCE ALL OF THIS IS SO CONFUSING IN REALITY HOW DOES IT WORK THEN WITH OFFICERS ON OPIATE MEDS HUH?? OBVIOUSLY THEY ARE NOT ALLOWED TO BE ON MEDICATION WHILE IN A FIRE FIGHT BUT SIMPLE POSSESSION IN CONSTITUTIONALLY LEGAL AND ALL THESE AMENDMENTS WERE ILLEGAL THAT THEY ARE TRYING TO USE DONT LET THEM TRY TO SCARE YOU JUDGES DONT LIKE CIRCUSES NOR DO DA. YOUR LAWYER WILL FIND ALL THE MISTAKES THEY MADE (WHICH WILL BE MANY AND THESE PEOPLE CAN NOT FIGHT YOU IF YOU HAVE AN ACTUAL MEDICAL AILMENT) AGAIN WE ARE ALOUD TO DRIVE AND HAVE MEDS JUST NOT BE ON THEM IN TIME OF DRIVING SO THEY HAVE NO BACKBONE OR BARRING TO STAND IN WHEN IT COMES TO CHARGING YOU FOR FUTURE CRIME. THEY CANT EVEN SAY YOU WHERE A MENACE AND YOU WOULD BE ABLE TO USE STATE GUIDES AS EVIDENCE ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO LEGITIMATE STUDIES ON THE MEDICINAL VALUE THIS IS THEM DOING SHADY SHIT AND THESE KANGAROO COURT ARE BREAKING DOWN WITHIN THEY ARE TRYING TO OVERFILL PRISONS SO THEY CAN GET A BIGGER LOAN AND SAY THEY NEED THE MONEY WHEN THEY ARE STEALING MONEY I HAVE NO IDEA WHY NO LAWYER IS SMART ENOUGH TO TAKE IT TO SUPREME COURT ITS EASY ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO SECOND AMENDMENT THEY HAVE TO PROVE THAT YOU ARE A DANGER TO YOURSELF OR OTHERS BECAUSE ANYONE CAN SEE VIOLENCE CAN BE CAUSED BY PSYCHOTROPIC MEDICINE WAY MORE THAN MMJ AND THAT WOULD BE PROVEN OBJECTIVELY IN SUPREME COURT WITH A JURY ESPECIALLY IF YOU TESTIFY TO ITS MEDICINAL BENEFITS AND HAVE WITNESSES TO YOUR AILMENT EVEN IF YOU DIDNT HAVE YOUR CARD! LAWYERS NEED TO STOP BEING PUSSIES AND START TRYING TO BRING THIS TO SUPREME COURT!

  10. I know that it is illegal to be in possession of a firearm when intoxicated, so obviously it's a no-no with marijuana. In fact, it's worse since it's a schedule 1 substance, whereas alcohol isn't even registered.

    BTW: Medicinal, yes. Recreational, no.
