More “blow back” for medical marijuana users

Posted on: October 3, 2011

With no pun intended, only the truth, it seems that the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is warning gun
dealers
that it is illegal for medical marijuana patients to buy firearms.

A letter was sent September 21st to all gun dealers saying that marijuana use is still barred by federal law even if it was approved by states. Therefore, people who want to buy firearms who declare their use on their applications for buy firearms will be denied.

Of course, advocates say that this is another attack on state medical marijuana programs. In fact, the Justice Department warned
dispensaries that they could face federal prosecution for selling medical marijuana.

Once again we have the federal government in direct conflict with state government. The federal government won’t help secure the borders but will sue states who do secure borders. Is this federal government dysfunctional or what? Where are the lawmakers on this subject? Either approve medical marijuana under the federal government or get rid of the state laws all together.
