New Gun Grabber Idea: Medical Marijuana Users Should Turn In Their Guns

It’s always something with these people (via Hot Air)

(Daily Caller)  Hawaiian authorities have asked medical marijuana users to “voluntarily surrender” firearms due to their medicinal status. This may mark the first time a law enforcement entity has moved to confiscate guns from cannabis patients.

Marijuana users in Honolulu are expected to turn over all firearms and ammunition to the state within 30 days of receiving the notice, according to a letter signed by police chief Susan Ballard, reported the website Leafly.

The state’s first medical marijuana dispensary opened in August, but federal law prevents patients who ingest cannabis from owning a firearm. Marijuana is still categorized as a Schedule I drug by the government and is considered in the same league as ecstasy and heroin.

By “voluntary”, they mean mandatory.

This is an interesting case. The state has blown off federal law on the use of marijuana, which is a Schedule I drug and illegal to grow, use, buy, or possess, yet, is using another federal law they seem to like to uphold their gun-grabber ways. Imagine telling your kids that they can have a cookie before dinner, then punishing them for having that cookie by taking away their dinner.

    It’s on then form 4473 : 11 e., “Are you an unlawful user or addicted to marijuana,….’ etc etc etc and later in the same section “Warning [marijuana use is still illegal under Fed law].

    Actually, that is the idea behind the desired background checks. Except that it also includes most of the drugs an average individual might have to take at any time. Opiates for your back problem, no guns. Sleeping pills, no gons. Divorce, no guns. You get the picture, only ones allowed guns will be those that don’t care about the rules.

      Sure, but that’s by design, it takes some work keeping out of the all seeing eye of Sauron, so why make it easy for the shitheads by registering with the State for a pot card? I wouldn’t be surprised if Hawaii has a scheme similar to Illinois’ where any gun owner is registered through the state with a Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) to buy a firearm or ammo. The state them only needs to cross reference and baddabing, you’re hosed.

    I seriously doubt that they are going to get any guns except some pieces of shit that dont work.

    Simple solution, Congress can change how pot is treated in federal law, re:medical marijuana. Picking and choosing which federal laws to follow and enforce should not be an option for guns or marijuana.

      The inconsistency in laws is something that is a problem. But the big issue is why our government denies us to have adequate access to medications. Most countries in the world do not have the very severe drug laws that we have and they have less drug problems. I had a friend in Germany that needs her Xanax refilled. She went to the pharmacy and asked the druggist how to accomplish this task in a foreign country. The druggist said that the drug was behind my friend on the shelf and all she had to do was pick up what she needed and pay, no doctor, no prescription. We do not live in a free society and one way of getting our freedom back is to rid ourselves of our stupid drug laws.
