Bong or Bang: Illinoisans Must Choose

Bong or Bang: Illinoisans Must Choose

The Chicago Tribune has reported that Illinois regulators have proposed new rules that would require users employing the state's new medical marijuana law to give up their right to own a gun, even if they already have a state-issued firearms identification card or concealed carry license.

Those of you who have filled out a 4473 form lately will recall that "unlawful users" of marijuana are disqualified from buying a gun, so it seems likely that state officials are trying to harmonize regulations with federal law. That's ironic, of course, since federal law makes no provision for medical marijuana.

NRA is taking no position on the regulations, and that's probably smart. It is, however, hard not to point out that the President recently stated his opinion that marijuana was no worse than alcohol. If that's the case, then why should cancer or glaucoma sufferers who use this natural remedy be denied their rights? Hmm?
