US court upholds ban on gun sales to marijuana card holders
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A federal government ban on the sale of guns to medical marijuana card holders does not violate the Second Amendment, a federal appeals court said Wednesday.
The ruling by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals applies to the nine Western states that fall under the court's jurisdiction, including California, Washington and Oregon.
It came in a lawsuit filed by S. Rowan Wilson, a Nevada woman who said she tried to buy a firearm for self-defense in 2011 after obtaining a medical marijuana card. The gun store refused, citing the federal rule banning the sale of firearms to illegal drug users.

Most Universities Have No Interest in Growing Marijuana for the DEA
The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration recently announced that it would finally tear down some of the barriers that have prevented the scientific community from studying marijuana by providing more opportunities for institutions of higher learning to get involved with the cultivation of research cannabis. Unfortunately, a new report finds that the DEA’s offer to facilitate more federally sanctioned growers may not bring about the vibrant transform the cannabis community had hoped for because many universities have absolutely no interest in growing weed.
Recently, the folks at STAT contacted nearly a dozen universities across the nation—some of which already operate industrial hemp programs—to find out just how many of these schools are eager to get into bed with the federal government to grow research marijuana.
