Illinois Medical Marijuana Patients Sent Letters Telling Them They Can’t Own Guns

Category: News | Posted on Sat, December, 12th 2015 by THCFinder

handgun and weedMedical marijuana is now legal in Illinois, and more and more patients are starting to sign up as patients now that medical marijuana sales have begun at dispensaries. It took a long time, and a lot of hurdle jumping, but there is finally legal safe access to medical marijuana in Illinois. But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t still bumps in the road, proven by the recent mailing of erroneous letters telling medical marijuana patients in Illinois that they would have to give up their guns because they are medical marijuana patients. Per PJ Star:

Nearly two years after Illinois decided medical marijuana users shouldn’t be prohibited from owning guns, several patients received letters from state police telling them their firearms cards were being revoked.

Although the agency insists the letters were sent to just four people before the mistake was corrected, some cannabis supporters say the error signifies an underlying ambivalence about medical marijuana in the 23 states where it’s now legal.

Will Congress Approve Marijuana Proposals for the 2016 Federal Budget?

Federal lawmakers are burning the candle at both ends on Capitol Hill today in an attempt to hash out the final details of Uncle Sam’s new budget before the clock runs out on the current spending bill at the end of the day. Among the legislation wrapped up in this heated negotiation are several amendments aimed at providing protections for those states that have legalized marijuana.

One of the most popular proposals, which was included in last year’s spending bill, would prevent the Department of Justice and their cronies at the DEA from using federal funds to cause obstruction in states that have legalized marijuana for medicinal use. Known as the Rohrabacher-Farr Amendment, the measure was drafted with the intention of forcing the federal government to respect a state’s decision to legalize medical marijuana and prevent American tax dollars from being used to prosecute dispensaries and patients. 

However, this amendment has been the source of a great deal of controversy over the past year due to liberal interpretations within the Department of Justice.
