Pain therapy or self defense. A stark choice

By Josh Sweigart. December 4th, 2017

People who register with the state of Ohio to legally use medical marijuana will be prohibited from possessing firearms under federal law, according to guidance released by the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.

In an open letter to federally licensed firearms dealers, the ATF advised in 2011 that marijuana is still a Schedule I controlled substance under federal law so any use of the drug is unlawful, and gun dealers are prohibited from providing guns or ammo to anyone they have cause to believe uses pot.

"There are no exceptions in federal law for marijuana purportedly used for medicinal purposes, even if such is sanctioned by state law," the memo says.

The law applies to more than just buying guns. The ATF letter says marijuana users are prohibited from "shipping, transporting, receiving or possessing firearms or ammunition." .......

We mentioned recently about Hawaii regarding medical marijuana and no guns. Here we have the same with Ohio and no doubt other states will follow. There is an urgent requirement for a bill that would make an exemption for legitimate medical use such that it can be treated as any prescription pharmaceutical. Medications are already available which contain the beneficial active ingredients and are not aimed at 'recreational' use. What a choice - pain free but defenseless.

Attention Arizona - Bill of Rights Day Celebration, 12/15/17 - this event still has spaces available. For everywhere else - set up your own BoR Day and keep the Bill of Rights alive.
